The Tsuneishi Shipbuilding Company introduced this new logo mark on the occasion of Tsuneishi group’s 100th anniversary in April, 2003.
The logo is based on the Tsuneishi Corporation Group’s use of the character and the letter V, which stands for the three concept ideas Vessel, Value, and Vision.
By using deep navy blue, with its calm atmosphere, as the background color, the logo symbolizes Tsuneishi gearing up to ensure a prosperous future as a shipbuilder in the 21st century.
Tsuneishi Group’s logo is designed to express the totality of the Tsuneishi group’s solidarity and philosophy. The spiraling ocean wave motif expresses the international scope of the the business conducted by the Group’s companies. The overlapping waves indicate the mutual support the companies give one another as they seek to expand their businesses together.
By using this logo group-wide, we aim to make people more aware of the Tsuneishi group’s identity, forging a more widespread familiarity of the group’s constituent companies and enhancing the logo’s value by linking it to their broad array of accomplishments.
