Comments from Yoshimaro Hanaki
On this occasion, receiving this award is a great honor and far more than I deserve. I very much appreciate the guidance and support of many people, especially our customers in Japan and overseas. I accept this honor on behalf of the hard work done by the machine tool industry with its influence on all industrial circles, and also for our employees in Japan and abroad who have walked with me on this journey.
With the encouragement of this honor, we will do our best for the continued development of machine tools as a foundation to support "monozukuri" and the advancement of manufacturing throughout the world.
