¢§Biannual Clean Activities

We have company-wide cleaning activities a year to pick up litter from streets. Surprisingly, there is still so much litter on the streets of the eco model city. We try to keep Minamata clean as a ”ČEnvironmental Model City”É.

¢§Labor Cooperation with Welfare(2)

With the construction of new space for dismantling office equipment and other non-household appilances , we created a new work line for people with disabilities.This space is used by people with mental disabilities from the Waku Work Minamata and the Minamata Welfare Workplace vocational aid centers.Separating all of the parts takes a long time to learn, but they continue to work enthusiastically.

We collaborate with Hotto house, a workshop for people with Minamata Disease-related disorders and other handicaps, to develop new products by processing panel glass. We made it possible for the people from Hotto house to work with our regular employees in the same building. Their jobs include pasting transfer sheets and magnets as well as packaging.
