Back in 1975, MARUSO INDUSTRY CO., LTD was established in Japan.
Our company is a manufacturer of plastic hangers and clips for dry cleaners.
Company has manufacturing and marketing subsidiaries in the United States.
The maker movement has led to the creation of a number of technology products and solutions by typical individuals working without supportive infrastructure.
"Hacker spaces" and "Maker spaces" allow like-minded individuals to share ideas, tools, and skills.
Since I witnessed such current situation, I would like to contribute "maker movement" by connecting the Makers of U.S. and Japan on the web.
So I decided to create a website of "Geeks" and "Geeky Factory".
We will take full advantage of our resources such as "people with the skills of design", "mold designing", "injection molding", "know-how of making things", "bases for logistics and sales in Japan and the United States." etc.
We want to be a help in the realization of making attractive products to be commercialized, while helping to make the idea change the world.
