Technology Alliances

Over 90% of our products were developed using proprietary technologies. And our R&D culture developed through strong technological expertise remains an essential element of who we are. Nevertheless, as we strive to achieve ongoing growth as an R&D-oriented corporate group, we will actively acquire new technologies and collaborate with third-party companies, organizations, and research institutes to access technologies not available in-house.
