We have a strong connection with other manufactures so that we can provide clients with not only our equipment but also the necessary information regarding TOM Method.

[Representative's message]
Now, interior parts for automobiles have the highest proportion of products adopting the TOM Method. All such automobile manufactures have established their manufacturing/sales bases overseas to develop sales in the global market. European automobile manufactures have especially established good reputation regarding recognition and technology. We will be actively involved in expanding our business to Europe since it is our biggest challenge. Adoption of TOM Method by European cars will increase our reputation in Japan.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
The management in major companies is different from that in small and medium companies. Still, we need to learn how to promote business plans and make use of management methods from major companies to improve our quality.
