[Company strength]
Our greatest advantage is our development speed. We can promptly catch up with customer needs by using secure materials and our manufacturing knowledge, and we produce optimal products by utilizing the characteristics of materials. We have a two-site system organized from a mass-production factory in Toyokawa City, Aichi Prefecture and an R&D factory in Kakamigahara City, Gifu Prefecture. Our company has been selected many times for consignment research (Strategic Core Technology Advancement Program) and subsidies. We also have many machines that are not available at other companies. We are constructing a quality evaluation system and continuously implementing cutting-edge equipment.

[Strength of products/technologies]
We have been devoted to research on materials and forming technologies with a specific focus on soft, safe materials of silicone, urethane, and thermoplastic elastomer to develop softer, safer materials. We registered Toughsilon Gel, Crystal Gel, and Medipure Gel as trademarks to clearly differentiate our materials. We will make use of the features of our materials, including these three materials with registered trademarks, to produce and propose products that meet customer needs.

[Representative's message]
Our company is working on materials and forming technologies from the research stage for differentiation from other companies. We will develop softer, safer materials and contribute to society in the fields of health care and beauty as well as medical care, nursing care, and welfare. We are currently jointly developing special products with a domestic partner that has great technical power. We will actively introduce the products we develop at five or more exhibitions annually. We will continue to produce unique, Made-in-Japan products.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Transactions with major companies: Our transactions showed a great increase in the last three terms. We have a double-site system for production, quality, and research, organized from our Toyokawa factory and Kakamigahara factory where we continuously introduce cutting-edge equipment. We are gaining the trust of customers who visit our factories. 
In-house system for overseas expansion: We are now exporting products to one major company only and have not yet started full exports. We are receiving many inquiries from overseas through exhibitions and our website. However, our in-house system including sales channels is not yet ready.
