[Comment from Susumu Owaki, Representative Director of Restus Co., Ltd.] In order to purchase custom-ordered products on the existing platform, the UX was not optimized, face-to-face sales required many man-hours, and it was difficult to sell at a reasonable price, especially in the case of small lots. Restus can easily purchase custom-ordered products through its proprietary system, sells even small lots at reasonable prices, and deals directly with small and medium-sized manufacturers, which have low profitability due to a multi-contracting structure. , I think that it leads to DX (high profitability) of small and medium-sized manufacturing industries and regional revitalization. 11 years ago, Restus, which started with EC sales of name calendars, currently handles more than 4,000
custom-ordered items, and is growing as a platformer with about 20,000 corporate companies and about 180,000 individuals trading annually. is ready. With this investment, we will work together with Chugin Capital Partners to partner with partner companies in the Chugoku and Shikoku regions so that we can achieve our medium-term goal of becoming a leading fast custom order company in Japan. We will move forward together.
