1. Completely dedicating ourselves to enhancing customer satisfaction.
Our customers come from virtually all industrial sectors and have their own

Being an organization of highly skilled experts, we significantly contributes
to society as a whole. To conduct technological development as well
as efficient and diverse operations in an industrial sector that
maintains its independence in the context of rapidly changing demand,
we need the courage and the strength to anticipate future trends.
We must proactively accept challenges without fearing change,
and as individuals transform our efforts into the personal motivation to work.
3. Become a stronger, more energetic company.
We strive to become the world’s leading company by encouraging all
our employees to enhance their technological strengths in the broadest sense.
To achieve this, we will incorporate the technologies and skills of
other industries, rather than clinging to conventional ways of conducting
business or R&D, and aim to raise the production efficiency of our high-level
technological know-how through active discussions and bold creative endeavors.
4. Striving to attain the pride and confidence born from making a
contribution to society through our specialized skills and technologies.
Our day-to-day activities are carried out in strict compliance with the

we provide valuable support
to our customers’ technological development and production processes,
ultimately contributing to the public good and to the protection of the
environment. As individuals devoted to these goals, we pledge to
continuously improve our knowledge and skills, adhering to and defending
our high ethical standards with pride as specialized professionals.
