About us

Message from the President and CEO

代表取締役社長 桑田隆晴

We will be the NO. 1 golf wear company in the world.

The GRIP Group was established on May 7, 2001, and we will be entering our 18th year on the same day of this year. I believe that our ambition of bringing in a new breeze of golf wear products has spread throughout the market.

Heal Creek was our startup brand and it will be opening 50 stores this spring with the help of our South Korean partner. We are slowly but gradually achieving the target of spreading our brand to Asia, Europe, and the U.S. Our hope is to continue increasing members who share these ambitions with us.

We can be trusted with various responsibilities if we work hard from a young age. Based on our fundamental concept of a continuous career with steady growth, all our employees from the age of 22 to 60 approach their work with the same belief. The GRIP Group is an organization that strives to be the best golf wear brand in the world. Our desire is to grow and enjoy our progress as we aim to realize the ambitious desire to achieve the business scale, concept, and future possibilities that we envision.

In December of last year, all our employees gathered at the foot of Mt. Fuji to enjoy our company party and some golf. We are planning on organizing the event again this year at a different location. It was a wonderful opportunity to have all our members from Tokyo, Kobe, and Kyushu to gather, and I am certain there was much to gain from being able to spend time with members who rarely have the chance to speak with each other. My wish is to also have members from overseas join these occasions in the near future.

As the representative of our group, my hope is to continue working towards our objectives with everyone. And when we achieve our goal of becoming the best golf wear brand in the world, it is your turn to decide our next target. We only live once, so let's enjoy this experience and grow together.
