Ceremony To Launch Construction of Nachi (Jiangsu) Industries Factory

  Nachi-Fujikoshi Corporation is setting up a new company called Nachi (Jiangsu) Industries Co., Ltd. in the city of Zhangjiagang in Jiangsu Province, China, and on January 30 it held a ceremony to celebrate the upcoming construction of the company's factory there.

  The ceremony, held at the site where construction will take place within the Zhangjiagang Economic Development Zone, was a major event attended by over 300 people, including: Xu Meijian, the Secretary-General of Zhangjiagang City; Yao Linrong, the city mayor; Zhang Wei, the Secretary-General of the Zhangjiagang Economic Development Zone; many other officials from Chinese government bodies; and, from Nachi-Fujikoshi, the company president Hiroo Honma.

  Secretary-General Zhang gave a speech, saying: "The Nachi brand is greatly admired in China, and the brand developer, Nachi-Fujikoshi, is now the 55th company from the international community to establish a presence in our city. By supplying the latest products and promoting advanced technologies here, the new company will contribute greatly to the development of this city and, as a result, to the economic and industrial development of China. We thank you for expanding your business to our city, and I promise you my utmost cooperation and support."

  In his speech, Nachi-Fujikoshi president Honma said: "The city of Zhangjiagang occupies a key location on the Changjiang River delta, and is a focal point for China's development. It also happens to be the place where the Chinese Buddhist missionary Jianzhen (Ganjin) set off for Japan more than 1,200 years ago. We are very happy to be able to construct a factory here, and very thankful to the many people who worked hard to make this possible. We want the factory to become a major center of production in China. As a manufacturer of a wide range of machinery and equipment, we intend to supply many products, services and solutions to customers in industrial sectors where demand is growing very quickly, especially in the motor vehicle, construction machinery, machine tool, railway rolling stock and aircraft sectors."

  Panels had been set up at the site to give background information on the company's projects and introduce many of the company-related technologies and products, and a robot performed a dance of welcome, attracting the attention of those in attendance.
