“Our challenge and dedication will lead to our clients’ satisfaction, which I hope will lead to our workers’ dreams come true as well”, mr Namatame says. “I believe that making a ’prototype’ plays a very important role in the whole process of materializing a dream into an actual creation. We find a sense of satisfaction and achievement in steadily building up this creation, which will be mass-produced years after in the future.
In addition, as a precise metal process prototyping specialist, we are showing our capabilities of production and R&D engineering levels through our own participation and presence in professional motorsports. One of the main examples of such is the fact that we are currently supplying a fully-in-house designed and manufactured ’moto2 racing bike’ which was ranked third in the FIM CEV Repsol International Championship in the 2017 season.”
