■Comments from each company
・Mr. Yu Kadowaki ORIX Corporation Senior Manager, Equity Solution Team, Domestic Business Promotion Department Corporate Business Headquarters
In Japan, social and industrial infrastructure has been deteriorating at an accelerating speed, whereas the number of skilled workers for repairs and maintenance has been on the decrease. We believe that iXs’ various technologies and solutions, including its robot technology, are expected to significantly contribute to solving the social challenges mentioned above by promoting labor-saving and streamlining of business operations. This is exactly in line with ORIX’s fundamental philosophy of “contributing to solving social issues through business,” for which we have decided to invest in iXs.
