Donated QUO cards to medical workers responding to COVID-19 in Mie Prefecture.
We would like to extend our heartfelt sympathies to all those who have been infected COVID-19 and who are experiencing difficult circumstances due to the pandemic. Our deep gratitude once again goes to medical staff who are working night and day on the frontlines to protect people’s lives and health.
As part of our CSR activities and to convey our gratitude for their support, we donated QUO cards to approximately 7,000 medical workers caring for COVID-19 patients at 24 hospitals in Mie Prefecture. The cards have been donated through Mie Hospital Association.
JM Group is working together with customers, business partners, employees, and other stakeholders to prevent the spread of COVID-19. As a responsible member of society, we will continue to take countermeasures and sincerely hope that the global pandemic will be brought under control soon.

Held the 12th JAPAN MATERIAL Group Family Event
On November 9, 2019, we held "12th JAPAN MATERIAL Group Family Event" at our headquarters in Komono-cho, Mie. We hold this event every year to promote interaction between the community, the employees and families of the JM Group. This year, about 300 people joined the event in fine autumn weather. The event included some vibrant and exciting performances by an police dog from the local police station, and by the local Yosakoi dance team and Tsugaru Shamisen group, and booths organized by employees.
JM Group actively employs Vietnamese engineers as permanent employees, therefore we set up a Vietnam booth at this year’s event to introduce Vietnamese culture. The booth served Vietnamese dishes, displayed traditional costumes, and held a rock-paper-scissors contest, all of which helped deepen interaction with visitors.
