Contribution to Society
In 1996, we opened a school specializing in precision mold technologies, Institute of Precision Moulds (IPM) in Penang, Malaysia, upon request by the Malaysian government in cooperation with local Japanese companies and materials and machinery companies. This school provides technical education of making molds in the three-year program mostly to employees of local companies. We now count 350 people who graduated from this school, contributing to the mold technologies in the Penang Province.

PM has since merged with Penang Skills Development Centre. The Tsujihana Fund (a foundation that our founder, Eizo Tsujihana, established in conjunction with donations from supporting companies) that had sponsored the operation of IPM afterwards, also sponsored the opening of an educational assistance organization for people with learning difficulties, Bureau on Learning Difficulties. In recognition of these social contributions to Malaysia, Eizo Tsujihana was bestowed an honorary knighthood of DATO (equivalent to the British “Sir”) in 2007 from the Sultan of Penang in the presence of the governor of Penang and many dignitaries from the Penang government. Our founder said, “we must contribute to the local societies because we have been fortunate enough to be allowed to do business in these countries.” Following these words and actions, the Nissei Technology Group has been aiming to become a true global corporation by contributing to the growth of countries and communities where we do business overseas, including imparting advanced technologies and employee training from Japan, thereby contributing to the happiness of the people and not only the pursuit of making profits.
