Overview

Development of the auto part industry is a pressing issue to secure global competitiveness of the local carmakers. The surface treatment technology (plating, painting) is one of the most underdeveloped areas in the auto part industry. The Company has recognized the need of setting up an R&D center to address such technical needs, and established the R&D Center (that was officially recognized in 2002) to concentrate on its development efforts.
