The rising value of the yen following the Plaza Accord of 1985 brought a decline in cost competitiveness that JGC addressed by aggressively building its bases overseas.
The company won a series of contracts for large-scale petroleum refining, petrochemical, LNG, and other such projects around the world, and in doing so, achieved an unshakable position among the world's top few engineering contractors.
In 1997, JGC founded its Yokohama World Operations Center in the Minato-Mirai district of Yokohama.
