Mitsuo Aoki, President
Our policy for product development is to focus first on seeing everything from customers´ viewpoints, and developing products by putting ourselves in users´ positions, instead of pursuing the company´s profit first.
In line with this policy, every product-development process at LEC, Inc. starts from the frontlines of sales departments, because this approach enables us to collect up-to-date information and customers´ needs from the market and reflect them into the development processes promptly.
In this way, we can better serve customers´ needs and produce "more convenient", "less expensive" and "more beautiful" products constantly.

We want to fulfill customers´ heart – that is the desire of every employee at LEC, Inc. We always think of "what we can do to satisfy and rejoice customers", by putting ourselves in users´ standpoints. We believe that if we develop all the products with this attitude in mind, our products will be needed by customers even in any recession years.

"Develop products earnestly to fulfill customers´ heart"– by placing this philosophy as the first mission of LEC, Inc., we will make utmost efforts also in the future to drive "price collapses initiated from the manufacturer´s side".
LEC Employees 3 Key Attitudes:
1. We never avoid challenges that we may face. / 2. We never give up things during the course of our efforts. / 3. We face every challenge courageously and fearlessly.
