While preparing a news release of our new brand scheduled at the beginning of the year of 2012, NiKKi Fron has been receiving tremendous support not only from a variety of authorities and business establishments in Japan, but also fron various public and private organizations and Japanese locals in France, since president Kasuga having lived in France for four years.


NiKKi Fron has been working hard to unveil our new brand in Paris as a Japanese "Monodzukuri" manufacturer. We have recognized the importance of releasing the information especially from France since there are some important values put on the event: as a chance to start the "regeneration of the Japanese Monodzukuri craftsmanship"; as a chance to exchange cultures and business between France Japan; and as a chance to appeal to world-class "artistic value of Japan". Beyong the cultural and economic exchange between France and Japan, we hope that this event is going to be encouraging the country of Japan, which has been losing its confidence since the great earthquake, and many people, especially those who have been involved in Monodzukuri. NiKKi Fron is truly hopeful and fully willing to contribute to revitalize Japan and the Japanese people.
