Our core purpose is to produce quality yet affordable and simple to maintain tools.
We aim to research and develop affordable methods for the maintenance of historical timber structures, dwellings, stores, office buildings, public baths, medical and healthcare facilities, and any facilities where hygiene is paramount such as food processing plants. We have the research and development site at Ritsumeikan University, Kusatsu campus in order to remain current and take advantage of the variety of disciplines available at a modern university. We believe this is the best path to enriching the lives of our customers.
