We have up to this point created a new approach to the reuse market, believing in the attractiveness and the potential of this business model that creates new associations with the value of goods.
We began as a small store in Osaka in 2007, and in 2011 we established SOU Inc. (currently Valuence Holdings Inc.).
Focusing on the purchase and resale of luxury brand goods, antiques, and art objects, we continued to grow and in 2018 we were listed on the Mothers section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
In March 2020, we declared our “second founding” and embarked on a new start as the Valuence Group.
We reformed our business model and expanded our operations from within Japan to overseas, and are pushing forward to transform ourselves into “a corporation that can provide life-changing value to our customers and everyone we are involved with, through all of our business activities”.
Aiming to provide “life-changing value” to each of our customers.
The popularization of internet auctions and flea market apps has made the idea of “reuse” a more familiar part of our lives. However, it still has far to go before it becomes “natural”. Estimates are that the collective asset value of luxury brand goods and precious metals currently tucked away in the closets of Japan may be as high as tens of trillions of yen. In other words, Japan has an enormous untapped mine of value capable of moving the needle on our economy.
Meanwhile, the phrases “Used in Japan” and “Checked in Japan” carry weight around the world due to trust in Japan’s culture of treating possessions well.
We want even more people to become aware of the benefits of reuse, and for it to become a natural idea in our global society. We also want to convey our concept of reuse from Japan to the entire world. We will continue to take on new challenges toward our goal to provide “life-changing value” to each of our customers, whether in Japan or overseas.
Main operated businesses
In buying operations, we have developed brand goods, antiques, and art buying specialty stores including NANBOYA, which has more than 100 locations across Japan.
In auction listing operations, we conduct auctions of brand goods, antiques, and art objects in Japan, and B2B auctions of diamonds and jewelry in Hong Kong. Since we started our business, the number of our registered dealers has continued to grow, and we are now supported by buyers from all over the world. With our outstanding lineup of products and quality that take advantage of our own buying network, we aim to become a hub in the reuse industry that can connect the value of goods.
We provide purchasing services for branded goods, antiques, and art objects across the country in the hope of delivering the goods our customers have loved to the next person who needs them.
