Management Message

There is an old saying that guides me each and every day:
Those at the top will have fire in their eyes
Those in the middle will have worry
Those at the bottom will laugh
Only with the sounds of laughter can the path be created
When you set a high target, those with ability become motivated to achieve that target. People in the middle become concerned and worry about the scale of the challenge. People without ability burst out laughing at the seemingly hopeless task.
But a target should be set so high that the world laughs at you – or it is not the right path to go down and not the right dream to follow.
We are a small company from Hanamaki in Iwate prefecture in the Tohoku region of Japan, and we have a dream to be a factory that will draw in customers from all over the world.
That dream might be so big that it makes people laugh right now, but I believe we can get closer and closer to reaching that goal if each and every employee works towards it in everything they do.
To achieve this dream we need to be a “shrewd company” that is always aware of and ahead of the dizzying changes in our business environment.
With a philosophy of always seeking to change for the better, and always backing up our philosophy with action, we are working towards achieving our dream – one step at a time.
Only by building high can you see new horizons.

  • Conflict Materials Initiatives
    Conflict Materials Initiatives

    Conflict Materials refers to materials mined in conflict zones in and around resource-rich The Democratic Republic of the Congo. Tin, tantalum, tungsten and gold (3TG) are specifically restricted under the U.S. Financial Regulation Reform Act (“Dodd Frank Act”).
    Minerals mined in these conflict zones are a source of funds for anti-government forces making this an international issue.
    As part of our CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility) activities our policy commits us to eliminating as much as is possible the use of materials that could become a source of funds for militants.
    We also work with our suppliers and customers to survey their supply chains and ensure that we do not use conflict materials and that we purchase materials responsibly.
