from Mr. Fukuda

Little after joining the company, I had a chance to developed a new part. At first, I was really worried that if I can handle this project on my own or not. My supervisors and senior engineers lead me to do process by process, make a prototype, evaluations (performance, durability and quality check) up to mass production.
The part is for control exhaust gas and now assembled part of the engine section.
Also I had opportunity to visit many plants in Japan and also Europe to study new technology, idea, and potential demand. I have been to Germany for the IAA International Motor Show, plant for Mercedes Benz and Audi. Putting all these experience, I do my best and work hard.
