The Restructuring of Cotton Spinning Companies in Postwar Japan
AbstractSince the mid-1960s, the Japanese cotton spinning industry has experienced steady decline. However, the whole process of this decline was the synthesis of several different firm strategies within the industry. If we look at this process, three types of firm strategies can be found; (1) positive restructuring from textiles to non-textiles (Kanebo, Nittobo, and Nisshinbo), (2) adherence to textile manufacturing (three shinbo: Kondobo, Tsuzukibo and Omikenshi), and (3) inactive restructuring in some large companies (such as Toyobo).
