We celebrated our 100th anniversary in 2017 with heartfelt thanks to all our customers and business trading partners around the world. At present, Nakatsuji Limited has a network of two plants for the Recycling Division, one plant for the Precision Forging Division, and two affiliated companies overseas. We pledge to meet the needs of our customers by always raising the quality level of our precision forging technologies, and by further innovating our recycling processing technology.
When it comes to technological development at our Recycling Division, our challenge is not only confined to developing our scrap metal operations. More broadly, in an effort to achieve greater sustainability in society, where economic growth and environmental preservation go hand in hand, we are providing our unique method of recycling to manufacturers, distributors, and local governments. By our method of processing discarded products such as various types of electronic equipment and industrial E-waste, we are obtaining a variety of substances including precious metals that are recyclable as raw materials.
Our Precision Forging Division's unique "Integrated Production System from the Raw Material to Finished Product" is applied to the production of CVJ parts for automobiles and industrial equipment parts. In 2016 we became certified for the automotive global quality management standard known as ISO/TS16949. Since then the International Automotive Task Force(IATF) has an enhanced global auto industry standard known as IATF 16949. We expect to be certified in this QMS by February 2018. We are committed to making our system more precise and accurate for the global market of automotive parts.
For the past 100 years, we have been putting great emphasis on building mutual trust relationships with our customers. We also believe that a mutual relationship of trust with society at large is important. We strive to further solidify trust with the public through the advancement of our operational safety, and our strong focus on environmental preservation.
Thank you very much for your business and continued support.
