Q. What makes you feel glad that you decided to join Murakami?

A. Veteran employees will teach you the manufacturing techniques right from the start. I joined Murakami after studying machinery at a polytechnic college for two years, but I was overwhelmed by the craftsmen’s skills that I could actually see and experience firsthand in Murakami. I am glad that they are friendly to me, regardless of my age.
