What are the advantages of operating in Ibaraki Prefecture?
Like you may already know, Tsukuba city is a place with a high concentration of research facilities. It also holds many centers for the development of advanced technologies. Further, because Hitachi city is the birthplace of Hitachi Ltd., there are many scientists, plants and personnel hard at work. I believe these advantages can not be found in any other prefectures but Ibaraki
Please tell me about your company’s future plans?
We are currently planning of spreading our product not only in the domestic market, but on the global market. With the 2020 Olympics around the corner, devices used for event security, are becoming more common. Further, with Japan’s aging society, medical treatment is becoming more abundant and compact photographic X ray inspection are more commonly used. While taking advantage of these trends we plan on expanding our sales and produce products that will be more useful to our buyers.
