Company Overview


Working to Create New Business Opportunities

Since our founding in 1995, Elan has been working to resolve issues facing the world, aiming to realize a spiritually rich living environment. From selling bedding in our early years to our current CS Set service, we have continuously evolved our operations by creating new businesses to meet the needs of our customers and everyone else involved.

The population in Japan is expected to age faster than any other country, resulting in even more serious issues in the future. I believe that Elan’s mission is to quickly identify and solve such new issues that come to light as the population ages. I think we can safely assume that issues first experienced in Japan will be experienced all over the world in the future, and I am confident that Elan has a significant role to play in this respect.

Chairman,CEO Hideharu Sakurai




The COVID-19 pandemic has triggered a change in awareness of infectious diseases and a substantial shift in people’s lifestyles. The digitalization of various fields is also accelerating changes in the way companies conduct business. The healthcare field is no exception and, in addition to major innovations such as online medical examinations, robotics, and the use of AI, I sense that customer feedback is also changing on a daily basis.

To respond to our customers’ diversifying needs, Elan will work to further develop our unique corporate culture and create services with a human touch that allow users to feel the warmth of mankind. We will leverage IT and other new capabilities while cherishing the win-win-win spirit that has been our philosophy since our founding, and we will work to create a sustainable and better society, not only in Japan but in each region around the world.
