* 3R: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

“MRO Stocker,” which is like “Okigusuri,”a business model that has been around for many years in Japan, but for tools.

It is a tool version of the business model "Pharmaceuticals" that has been popular in Japan for many years. Since the PRO TOOL that are used every day are already in stock, management costs, delivery dates, and zero waste purchases are realized. In addition, the delivery required for each order is reduced, which leads to a reduction in the environmental burden.
