Heartfelt greeting from President

I’ll faithfully support the people who need support for their arms and legs.
In 1946 after world warⅡ, Mr.Shojiro Obara who saw the full of sadness and the injured soldiers who lost their arms and legs. He thought that this kind of sadness shouldn’t happen again, so he decided to start Obara Industrial company which can offer the desired products as long as there is a person who is in need.

Thankfully, this thought can continue consistently up to now and we’re so glad our products can endure repairs even after thirty years later.
Thank you again for everyone patronage cooperation and understandings.

In Heisei era, needs of the prosthetics's materials has been changed for higher and lighter weight appropriate for a matured society.
Nowadays everyone is hoping to live up to 100 years old with good health a joyful life. Now new era, Reiwa has come.

Toward a new era to come,
Obara industrial company will offer the products which feel comfortable more than ever for the people who feel inconvenience. All our staff who engaged in the products will help with true heartedness and meet your expectations for second arms and legs.

I pray that your precious days will be richer and more comfortable and that you will have a peaceful mind.

 

I wish for your eternal happiness.
