Plant Tour by Young Executive Group of Kochi Business Manager Association

The Young Executive Group of Kochi Business Manager Association had a tour in Techno Hirose's plant on September 18, 2007. 11 executives of different industries and the association's secretary office staff participated in the tour.
After the Group Chair Mr. Tatsuki Nishimoto (President of Egg Mere Corporation) delivered an opening address, Hideki Ishikawa, the CEO and President of Hirose Techno Co., Ltd., provided an overview of the company, corporate history, processes and products.
In the plant tour, we received insightful questions from their objective point of view, which made us realize things insiders are hardly aware of. As we had not had much experiences of guiding many tour participants, it was a good opportunity for us, too.
Finally, we introduced and presented our final products, i.e. alkaline cells and coffee bags, as giveaways.
If there would be another opportunity, we would like to showcase the new products and machinery of Hirose Paper and Fukuhara Seishi.
