JCB Co., Ltd.

JCB has been an industry leader since it introduced Japan's first credit card as a payment method at the time of its founding in 1961. JCB launched overseas operations of its own independent brand in 1981, and since then, the company has taken on challenges around the world as the only Japan-originated international credit card brand. JCB continues to provide the world with new services and solutions of its own through the utilization of not only the credit card business but also its expanded business scope and business development capabilities.
If JCB's history of taking on challenges, frontier spirit, and global expansion of payment business strike a chord with you even in the slightest of terms, why not knock on JCB's door? Let's create a future together and build a new stage as a comprehensive payment service company leading the industry in Asia and the world.
