Elementary school students visiting Ai-City
Akebono proactively invites external companies as well as students from local elementary and junior high schools to tour its offices and plants across Japan.
In fiscal 2015, we invited more than 159 students from four elementary schools in Saitama Prefecture to tour Ai-City headquarters.
In addition to a briefing on the Company, these tours involved a visit to “Ai-Museum” (Brake Museum) and a presentation by our mobile brake technology educational center as well as programs aimed at providing handson experience of manufacturing at the Monozukuri Center. Such tours help raise visitors’ safety awareness while facilitating their understanding of Akebono and its products.
Looking ahead, we will implement initiatives with local enterprises and communities in regions around our domestic and overseas locations. Learning from and inspiring each other, we will grow in tandem with our stakeholders.
