– Message from the president –

Be the best, not just number one.

The attitude of making good quality products matters to me. Recently, price disruption has been particularly severe in our industry. I do not want to do business that loses sight of the genuine quality of products because of the pursuit of price. As top of the company, it can’t be said that there was no doubt. However, sticking to my beliefs and cherishing the network with craftsmen has brought very good result to both sides. Today, all employee have pride in their work and are working toward a common purpose. My favorite word is “Not everything is good” Adversity brings big opportunities. I would like to go beyond various challenge and keep doing my best so our clients and craftsmen tell us that it is pleasure to work with us.
