Under a parent company with over a 100yrs since its establishment, its longstanding legacy in the manufacturing industry comes with a dedication to constantly seeking innovation and fostering a corporate culture that encourages curiosity and allows employees challenges ideas within the company. They believe this is a facet that has constantly helped this company push towards new frontiers.

Despite its long history, the company is pushing towards creating a work environment that encapsulates more globally competitive, and relatively progressive standards. They believe that Japan still remains a relatively closed country and in order for it to be globally competitive, standards need to change.
