Q. What are you recently focused on or what new ideas do you have for the future?

We would like to focus on the market development of Generation Z to Millennials. We value the importance of nurturing young employees who will grow with the company and lead the future BAYCREW'S GROUP. We offer various growth opportunities for partners (employees) who are motivated and eager to take on challenges, even if unexperienced. Creating something new is never easy. However, we believe that the experience of failure, trial and error, and working together with partners to achieve a goal will help them to thrive greatly in the future. We believe that this effort to foster young partners will also become an important asset of the company.

Q. Do you have any memories from working with LUMINE that you would like to share?

We had a store where sales had fallen several times in the past, but with the helpful advice from LUMINE and thanks to their support in an extension we were able to recover and rebuild.

Q. Do you have any messages to your overseas customers/companies?

As mentioned in Q2, we will try and try again to ultimately create great products and experiences. We believe that is the true meaning of “creation”. With our slogan, “Joy for creation! Joy for challenge!”, we provide new products, services and values that have never been existed in the world before. At BAYCREW’S GROUP, we aim to be a company that will grow and evolve with people and the times.
