Basic Company Information


Next Generation Technology Group (NGTG)
CEO and Founder: Eiichi Arai 
Establishment Date: 9th July 2018
Shibuya, Tokyo

Our Business

We invest in  small and medium-sized manufacturers in Japan.
We don't exit.

Difference from PE fund

No need to sell

We are committed to supporting the growth of the companies we acquire in perpetuity.
Basically, we do NOT re-transfer our group companies.

Strong in IT

We will utilize existing IT services to improve operational efficiency. We also build our own production management systems.
We are also working on visualization of production status through the use of IoT and automated inspection through the use of AI.

A package of support measures

Unlike PE funds that invest in all industries, we only invest in manufacturing companies, allowing us to pursue synergies among group companies.
We have introduced the NGTG Growth Program (NGP), a structured growth support program tailored to each company, to promote customer introductions, engineer exchanges, joint purchasing, joint development, and the provision of back-office functions.

Difference from manufacturers

Respect the history

We will keep the corporate name and brand name alive. We respect and honor the history and aspirations of our group companies.

Not fire employees

In the case of a takeover by manufacturers, there may be restructuring of overlapping divisions. We do not lay off employees.

Not parent and children,
but Group

In the case of acquisitions by companies in the same industry, a parent-subsidiary relationship may arise. We consider each transferee company to be the main actor and an important member of the group.

Contact

Anyone is welcome to contact us, including manufacturers and advisors.
We are looking forward to growing together with you, our group of companies, and all those who have business with us, as well as those who are interested in transferring.
