On the basis of our long-term accumulated technologies, we have been carrying out continuous R & D activities to produce high quality needles. Our R & D activities include the improvement of our processing methods and needles shapes for better performance, the automatization of our production facilities for uniform needle characteristics, and the continuous development of our new needles to meet the diversified needlework patterns. Our R & D activities will be even more expansive than now, since they are a must in order to satisfy our customer's needs for needle quality.
