For the purpose of communicating to all societies its slogan of “Smile for the World” toward the realization of “Vision 2021”, targeting at the year of 2021, GC had designed a symbol in February 2017 to convey the concept of “GC Contributing to Health and Smile of People in the World”.

The symbol hopes to convey its message that GC has been devoting over a century to the development and provision of equipment, contributing to the health of people through dental care, and intends to further accelerate the momentum toward the 100th anniversary by broadly communicating how the “Colleagues” of GC will continue to move forward hand in hand. You can find the status of the “Countdown” at the top our homepage.

This symbol Company News Image May 2018 CTGC100A Icon will be used on a variety of occasions until the 100th anniversary.

    Overall ranking is compiled after the deliberate analysis of 6 factors, such as " Top Management Commitment" and "Kaizen and Workshop Management". This research does represent the level of corporate's striving to enhance quality, that does NOT represent the superiority of product quality itself.

    The ranking is based on the analysis of 62 subcategories (56 indicators), under the following 6 evaluated categories:

    • Commitment of Top Management
    • Cultivation of Human Resources for Realization of Quality Management
    • Management of Safety, Security and Trust
    • Establishment and thorough Implementation of a Process

These efforts are highly evaluated as the basis for the corporate quality.

    In 1921 three young Japanese chemists in Tokyo laid the foundation of what today can be considered as one of the world's largest suppliers of dental products with around 2,400 employees and four production sites in Japan, the USA, China and Europe. We are proud of that fact. But we are only too aware that we would never have come so far without the personal motivation and expertise of our staff and customers and the strong relationship we always have with dentists and technicians around the globe. This is why the motto for our 90th anniversary is: "90 years of progress with your support".
