[Strength of products/technologies]
Our LED lighting tube with built-in reflector < alo >, under patent appication, has more than twice brighter in Lux and stronger in photosynthetically active radiation (PPFD), comparing to fluorescent light or normal LED lighting. 
We successfullygrew berries, tomatoes, professional turf, etc. with our < alo >, which
is otherwise difficult to grow with fluorescent light or normal LED lighting.
Its application is extended to complementary lighting for greenhouse, keeping flowers and plants as fresh as possible at shopfront, etc. 
Also we are discussing such application as ceiling light for high ceiling place such as warehouse, factory, lighting for hallway at hospital, etc. backlight for advertising board,
taking advantage of high illuminance. 

[Representative's message]
Our company aims to achieve profitability increase and contribution to the society through new businesses and our LED lighting tube < alo >, under patent application,
will surely contribute to reducing energy consumption, promoting safe and delicious vegetables without insecticide and chemical fertilizer, and revitalizing local cities where
businesses are shrinking due to population decrease, by proposing a practical business model to grow vegetables with hydroponics unit to distribute locally, etc. which, I believe,
has an important meaning socially.
I believe this approach can be extended, not only in Japan, but also globally with such
key words as energy saving, safe and healthy food and revitalizing local cities.
