We have struggled with worldwide problems such as "food," "water" and "environment" through manufacturing since the foundation in 1890. Beginning with iron water pipes, our business has been expanding from machineries, water, environment system to social infrastructures. Our current global contributions are mainly to lifeline improvement of agriculture mechanization and of water and sewerage system、and overseas sales ratio is up to about 68% (FY 2017 ended December). Our challenge was always the same: what can we do to meet the demands and enhance our lives for tomorrow.
