    1. Purpose of Location Move

    Until now, TSH was involved mainly in the sales of Multifunctional Materials. However, in recent years, the Wellness Division which designs mattresses and other products for caregiving, and the Cubic Division have placed staff in TSH. More space is necessary to accommodate this increase in staff.
    With the increase in staff in TSH, we plan to increase our sales in China.
