In 2017, the Sanoh Group held commemoration ceremonies to mark milestone anniversaries for both our base of operations in the United States, Sanoh America, Inc., and our base of operations in Hungary, Sanoh Magyar Kft.
Sanoh America celebrated its 30th anniversary* in June. At the ceremony, we took a look back on 30 years of history, displaying photographs as well as the awards received from customers over that time. The event was a good opportunity for employees' families to learn about Sanoh America, as family members joined employees for guided factory tours and product information sessions.
Sanoh Magyar celebrated its 10th anniversary in August. There are a large number of people in Hungary with an interest in Japanese culture, andkarate andaikido have become major sports in that country. Children from localkarate schools were invited to the ceremony, where they practiced "kata" (forms) together with employees. Later, everyone enjoyed a lunch of Hungarian goulash soup and cake.
The continuation of the Sanoh Group is due to the ongoing support of our customers, employees, and local communities. With our aim on the next ten years ahead, we will strive together as a unified group to ensure that we may continue to supply products that meet the satisfaction of our customers around the world.
* In June 2017, Sanoh America marked 30 years since the founding of its predecessor, HiSAN Inc.
