Currently, KANEKO OPTICAL engages in planning, designing, and selling of eyewear, mainly our original brand, and holds the largest share in the Japanese eyewear market as an eyewear trend leader. Additionally, we have generated a stronger growth in the apparel field, as we collaborate with the latest fashion apparel companies and major apparel manufacturers.
To expand our global distribution network, we began to participate in the MIDO show, Milan, and in the SILMO show, Paris, from 1998. In 2000, the first global operation shop FACIAL INDEX NEW YORK was launched in SoHo, New York. Since then, the number of our retail shops, including our own stores for the domestic market, and European and Asian countries in the overseas market has grown rapidly. We will continue to develop our global network hereafter and build management from production to the retail as a pioneer of the glasses industry.
