Comments on the award
I am deeply honored to receive the Order of the Rising Sun, Silver Rays . We would like to express our gratitude to our customers and many others. Our flagship product, the elementless filter "FILSTAR," was born out of a desire to create our own products. Behind the development of this product is a history of my independence after the age of 40, when I focused on the development of our own products. The pursuit of new technology is my romantic interest. FILSTAR, which was developed with this in mind, is now a product that customers in a wide variety of industries, including the automotive and machine tool industries, are calling for. We will continue to innovate and rebuild Japanese technology to be competitive in the global market. Furthermore, we will continue to focus on how to develop our people.
