Mr.Ryoji Chubachi, the president of AIST (National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology in Japan), and the former vice chairman of Sony, visited our factory on July 31.

Since we have been developing products jointly with AIST, our company was selected for a visiting destination as part of the inspection tour of the northeastern part of Japan.

In this visit, Mr. Chubachi observed manufacturing process of hair-cutting scissors, and we exchanged opinions after that. From his experience of important posts like the president of Sony, Mr. Chubachi gave us valuable ideas from managerial and technical points of view. We were also able to exchange ideas about the joint development. Further industry-academia collaboration is expected in the future.
