[Company strength]
Our company manufactures and sells systems and supplies for preventing shoplifting in the distribution industry. We have excellent technical development power and many patents (including overseas patents) and provide world-first products. Our anti-shoplifting tags in particular are distinctive compared to existing products. We have direct transactions with major distribution companies in Japan and abroad. We also provide high-security-level shoplifting prevention systems equipped with face recognition engines.

We provide shoplifting prevention systems and information leakage prevention systems as a company specialized in the security business. We established a company for manufacturing anti-shoplifting tags in Shanghai in 2011 and are also exporting our products there.

Security product manufacturing and sales

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our anti-shoplifting tags are manufactured by etching aluminum foil as the main circuit material. Molten aluminum foil used to be disposed of without recycling. Our die cutting method makes it possible to recycle all kinds of aluminum foil. We have acquired an international patent for this environmentally friendly process. Tags can be detected even when they are adhered to human skin because they are not affected by water content. This has remarkably improved shoplifting prevention performance. We develop and sell shoplifting prevention systems equipped with face recognition engines to identify shoplifters and suppress crime in advance. We developed and commercialized a groundbreaking system capable of detecting paper, which used to be impossible. This prevents information leakage via printed matter, and it is the first system of its kind in Japan.

[Representative's message]
Our factory was the top manufacturer of sewing needles in Japan for 60 years after its foundation in 1917. We initiated our security business when we completed a business change to printing in the decade from 1972 based on our understanding of the future of the needle business. We have a printing department as a separate company specialized in the security business. We also founded a company in Shanghai to sell shoplifting prevention systems and to produce tags. We are now strengthening our sales power to acquire customers in overseas markets as well as the domestic market. We market products by making full use of our unique conceptions and technologies, and not by copying others, with challenge and creation as our philosophy of management.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We are now shifting our retailing system to major companies in specific industries and sales activities to growing companies in specific industries. We are also acquiring new corporate information leakage prevention systems and promoting sales activities with affiliated companies under the leadership of dedicated staff. We confirmed the stable production of in-house anti-shoplifting tags at our manufacturing company in Shanghai and are increasing sales with further cost reduction measures. Our sales channels are overseas sales agencies based on our staff in Japan and direct sales. We are now extending our agencies and acquiring chain stores and other major customers for direct sales.
