Origin of the Company Name

Logo and corporate colors

In 1975, Mamoru Kinoshita, a founder and present chairman of the campany, started auto accessories business in Kakogawa City in Hyogo Prefecture. At that time, he rented a site from a bowling alley named "Seven Bowl." By combining this "Seven," which is thought to be a lucky number, with "Auto" from "auto accessory business," he named his first store "AUTO SEVEN." Since then, "7 (Seven)" has been considered to be the symbol of our establishment.

In April 2006, along with the reorganization into a holding company structure, the corporate name was changed to G-7 HOLDINGS INC. This new corporate name was derived from "7 (Seven)," prefixed by the letter "G," which represents our multifaceted vision of the ideal company, namely "a global, and energetic corporate group with a lot of guts".

Logo signifies fledging and breath. The combination of G and 7 is designed for the seed rising into seedlings. We hope that G-7 HOLDINGS will grow and expand further in the future, as it was reborn from G-7 AUTO SEVEN which started from AUTOBACS.
We adopt blue and red for corporate colors. Blue represents seas around Japan, which interprets a global corporation expanding over these seas. Red represents passion, which interprets corporative group with passion.
