Contribution to Local Community and Industrial Development

Contribution to local community and industrial development: Our approaches

Customer relations

Our approach to regional and social development is summed up in Article 1 of our Corporate Mission, which is, “To further build company credibility with the public and to contribute to society by providing products and services that achieve customer satisfaction.” In keeping with this spirit, our CSR is founded on the following two principles: 1. Continuing to provide customers with stable-quality products and services while maintaining safe and eco-friendly operations; 2. Continuing to provide people with fulfilling and comfortable lives and enriched minds through the things we make. We in this group, along with everyone involved with us, will continue working to support the growth of people and society based on striving to foster a spirit of harmony, respect and cooperation in all we do.
