Message from the President

All is the satisfaction for the seller, the buyer and the society

’Sanpou-yoshi’ ( benefits for all three ) is my favorite proverb from the management philosophy.This ’Sanpou-yoshi’ means that the merchants should take into consideration the benefit for the customers, the vender and society at the same time.I believe that this idea will contribute to economical development and bring the happiness not only to our company’s employees, also for our clients.Also, find a pleasure in work that will lead to a well-being life. If you work reluctantly, it is not good for your mental health. With just a way of thinking, you can change your lives to bright one.
