Kuriyama Canada Inc. may have an international presence, but it operates as a small shop that listens to its customers’ needs.With headquarters in Japan, multiple manufacturing facilities in Canada and the United States and customers throughout the world, it is easy to think of Kuriyama Canada Inc. (KCI) as nothing more than a global player in the polyvinyl chloride (PVC) hose industry. While that is the case, Terry Jackson, president and director of technology for Kuriyama Group of Canadian Cos., says KCI maintains the attitude of a startup looking to make a name for itself.

“Our culture remains one of a relatively small company, even as the overall corporation grows,” Jackson says. “This sets us apart from many of our competitors who tend to take a more corporate approach to business, sometimes losing the direct, one-on-one communication and the personal commitment needed to maintain each individual market segment.”
