More than 20 years have passed since we entered the 21st century. Japan and the rest of the world, while experiencing many difficulties and changes, are moving forward and developing without stopping.
Since our establishment in 1987, we have continued to develop mechanical multi-story parking facilities with the goal of playing a role in the development of social infrastructure by providing safe and convenient storage space for the rapidly increasing number of automobiles that accompany the development of a country or city.
To date, we have installed the system not only in Japan, but also in China, Singapore, Australia, Romania, Iran, and other countries, and projects are underway in the Philippines, Bangladesh, and Iraq.
I was able to come into contact with people from all over the world as I spread the stage to other countries. When we manufacture and install machines, despite the language and cultural barriers, I have come to feel that the barriers have been gradually lowered through on-site efforts and problem-solving efforts. If 5G networks are developed globally, the barriers will disappear.
In the future, the so-called automobile society will undergo further changes. The shift to electric vehicles has begun, and flying cars like drones are on the way to practical use. Cars are needed more and more after experiencing the coronavirus. But there are limits to how small and light a car can be, and the need for parking space will never change.
We will continue our efforts and progress toward a society where automobiles can be used more safely and conveniently with our company's technologies. Please look forward to it.
