Head Office and Plant

A well-balanced system where the functions of the head office and plant are integrated to handle business affairs and development respectively.

We have two bases: a head office in Shinagawa, Tokyo and a plant in Funehiki-cho, Fukushima Prefecture. The head office is responsible for business affairs and design while the plant is responsible for testing, development, and production. Departments that often communicate with each other are integrated in order to eliminate communicational waste so that our business runs most efficiently.

  • Head office in charge of business affairs and design (Tokyo)

  • Funehiki Plant in charge of product development, quality control, and prod uction (Fukushima Prefecture)
