Since founding of our company Aupac, we have been devoting ourselves to developing
carbon brushes with the support of valuable customers.
Although carbon brushes that are neither gorgeous nor well-known products, these are important products that supports the modern industry. We are proud to have customers who support us, and we contribute to society with this business.
On the other hand, in order to continue to contributing to the society, we believe that it is essential to have a management structure that respond flexibly to the changes, human resource development, and product development. We will continue to make further efforts with the human power, engineering power, and creativity cultivated through support of our customers.
The cooperation, continued guidance and support from all of you would be highly appreciated.
