We are aiming for the realization of a “company that provides 'KANDO' to its customers”, which is our company's management philosophy and we are striving to improve customer satisfaction and provide high quality products and services that make a positive impression on customers. As a part of this activity, we will open the Komori Latin America Technical Service Center this April in cooperation with our distributor, Gutenberg, based in Sao Paulo, Brazil.
