Before Covid-19, we were able to deliver a large number of products that are beloved by marine professionals in Japan as well as around the world. We exhibited our products at exhibitions in Denmark, Norway and Seattle, USA, and introduced our products to many visitors. We also received feedback that was incorporated into development of our new products and improvement of our existing ones. We received valuable comments from our customers during our sales activities around Japan, and we were able to promote planning and development of products that incorporated the input from people in the field. However, unfortunately it is difficult for us to have such face to face communication with our customer as we did before.
In 2022, we will make a first step to overcome the situation. We will exhibit at virtual-type expo named AquaSur Connect for the first time. As many of you may know, the AquaSur held in Puerto Montt, Chile is the the most important aquaculture fair in Latin America. On its online platform, visitors can see some of our stainless steel fishing gear. Furthermore, we will respond to any question / inquiry from visitors online.
(*The online expo site is valid until around end of May, 2022.)
Re-starting from the expo, we will pay further attention to customer demands and will continue our efforts to comply with customer requirements. To move on to a new stage while maintaining our basic approach to manufacturing for our fishing hardware. Please look forward to our progress.
