Jaymart Group, a holding company with investment focus in retail, finance and technology under the vision of “Technology Investment Holding Company”, announced a new brand identity to drive the passion of doing business with “Heart”, by encompassing the power of synergy arising from the expansion of investment through 20 companies under the group while always grasping new partnership opportunities. The group set 2024 goals to achieve exponential growth by leveraging blockchain, big data and digital technology and innovation to enhance its retail capability and develop new business models and financial products to bring Thai people ease of access to loans, debt restructuring facilities and, ultimately, a better quality of life. By 2024, the company targeted to increase combined group market capitalization to 500,000 million baht.
Jaymart Group’s comprehensive marketing communication campaign known as “Heart” has been launched and extended until next year with a budget of over 80 million baht to build engagement with partners, investors, customers, the general public, as well as the company’s employees all over the country. The campaign featured an advertising commercial titled “Perception – Reality”, along with a range of marketing activities that reflect the notion of how putting heart and empathy in everything we do can lead to more lasting and meaningful happiness, for example, Jaymart Group joined forces with the Thai Red Cross Society to give away free tickets for Nos Udom Taepanich’s ‘Moo 2’ show for campaign participants who donate blood to the National Blood Center, Thai Red Cross Society during 21-30 September 2022
Mr. Adisak Sukumvitaya, Chief Executive Officer of Jaymart Public Company Limited, said at the “The Future is Shaped by Our Hearts” event on October 4, 2022, “Jaymart Group, as an investment holding company, celebrates our 35th anniversary by reshaping our business concept and value with a firm belief in placing ‘Our Hearts’ at the center of everything we do, which serves as our brand positioning in driving the growth of our 20 subsidiary companies and affiliates. We are determined to engage with the Thai society as a sincere brand with the goal of contributing to a better quality of life for Thai people. Given that, the way we look for business growth and investment opportunities with partners to build synergy in the future will focus on leveraging big data technology, digital innovation and our nationwide retail network to enhance our business capability so that consumers can have easier and more convenient access to technology-based products for everyday life, as well as retail and financial services from Jaymart Group in a wider variety of touchpoints and channels.”
Jaymart Group has launched the ‘Hearts’ communication campaign that highlights the symbol “Heart” on out-of-home media on BTS stations throughout Bangkok and social media, as well as the TVC titled “Perception-Reality” that illustrates the unfathomable business growth of Jaymart Group, currently worth more than 200 billion baht and still unknown to most people, is a result of collaborative efforts from teams of employees and partners who share the same goals. This can be exemplified by the foundation of a large iceberg, reflecting the business capability and determination of Jaymart Group, which is hidden deep beneath the sea. The fact that people can only see the tip of the iceberg above the water suggests that what they see is much less than what is hidden from view.
Adisak explained that Jaymart Group’s new brand value of “Hearts” in taking a bold step towards the future consists of 4 pillars of H, as follows:
- Hands to do – with a wide network of businesses and partners, we have better access to everyone’s lives
- Hearts to understand – with expertise in retail and consumer finance, we truly understand consumers and are willing to help them seek the right financial solution for their better quality of life
- Head to innovate – we leverage big data and digital technology and innovation to develop business models and products for retail and retail finance that truly meet the needs of customers and target groups in a sustainable way
- Hope to inspire – we are driven to encourage Thai people to improve their lives, help them get better equipped to grasp opportunities and move forward without fear of obstacles
Mr. Ekachai Sukumvitaya, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Jaymart Public Company Limited (SET: JMART) added that, “Today, Jaymart Group’s business concept driven by “Heart” has been proven successful in all our subsidiary companies. We are taking the next step towards a sustainable growth, achieving ‘J Curve’ by bringing innovation and technology to enhance business capabilities and joining forces with partners openly to expand business in order to create an exponential growth together, with overall profit set to grow at least 50% per year for the next 3 years. Recently, we have partnered with the BTS Group, which has enhanced mutual business operations across diversified retail and financial service offerings. Our partnership with Gunkul Engineering Public Company Limited leads to the expansion of distribution channel for solar rooftop solutions to more and more customers. Our recent investment in Buriram Sugar Group help expanding our ecosystem into Buriram, a key province with great business opportunities. We also plan to invest in PRTR Public Company Limited, which is a leading recruitment and outsourcing company in Thailand, allowing Jay Mart to help build ecosystem for the company and partners to support future growth together.”
“Jaymart Group is a future ready organization. We develop innovation and empower our subsidiary companies and affiliates in every aspect to enable them to stay at the forefront of retail, finance and real estate businesses. Every step of our growth is reached by collaborative support from business partners who share a common goal with us to embark on a transformation journey toward becoming a modern business that stays relevant in disruptive times and truly meets the changing needs of Thai people and business sectors. This is why the proactive rebranding of Jaymart took place with aim to promote brand love as well as create emotional value for customers, ensuring them that they will benefit from a great variety of retail and financial products heartfully crafted with thorough understanding of customer lifestyles, and always bring happiness to Thai people in all economic conditions,” added Adisak.
