Message from President Akiyama

I would like to express my gratitude to you for your generous attention to our company, and for taking the time to visit our website. When I had to suddenly take over this company from my father, Masahide Akiyama, the support and guidance of my seniors, the stakeholders in the company, greatly encouraged me. We remain committed to working to meet the needs of prosthetic limb factories and of all our clients. We will seek to be approachable and open as we unite as a company to move forward with our business and give back to society. In all this, we appreciate your continued patronage.
