Message from the president
 The products we make include cutting-edge industrial parts of all kinds. These perform vital roles in various cutting-edge industries.
 Our goal is not just to provide machining services based on our precision machining technology. We want to become our customersf best partners upon identifying every factor related to our products that can have a significant impact on your business, including quality, cost, and delivery times.
 We start by meeting with the customer for careful deliberations. Every detail is thoroughly discussed. We then apply ourselves to get the most out of each step of the process, from rough sketches to mass production at optimal costs and continue VA/VE proposals. It is fundamental for us to consider everything from the standpoint of the customer at all times: What does the customer need? What problems truly need to be solved?
 Given the ebb and flow of time, we want to be ready for the vicissitudes each new era brings. We do that by refusing to be satisfied with our current situation; by constantly identifying our weaknesses; by evaluating our successes and improving ourselves further; by reflecting on our failures and learning from them; and by honing our performance in all areas, including our production-related technical prowess.
 Under these conditions, we want to take a global, flexible approach based on the customerfs standpoint and viewpoint, applying our groupfs mobility in an effective battle formation to address our customersf multifarious needs in Japan, Taiwan, and elsewhere overseas.
 Confident of victory, intent on survival, focused on a better tomorrow - we want to talk about the future with all our users.
 Last but not least, our company boasts a history spanning more than 60 years. Filled with heartfelt gratitude for the guidance and patronage we have received, we want to gird up our loins, rekindle our spirit of creativity, and take bold strides into a new era.
