Concept
Since our establishment in 1952, we have dedicated ourselves to the development, production, and sales of the motors.

There are many uses of motors: as in automobiles, O/A machines, household appliances, medical equipment, and
vending machines to just name a few. Motors have become an indispensable part of our society such that motors
strongly effect the global ecosystem, the single most important issue to mankind.

Through motor manufacturing, we actively promote the conservation of the environment and teach
future generations the importance of coexistence with earth's environment.
