MESSAGE from the President
A Romance that makes itself better than Romance.
As the times change faster and faster, what is strongly sought after in a company is an excelling conception. Our unique position must be one that does not waver, and it must be one that perceives the values of the next generation and bases its proposals upon them. The starting point for such an endeavor is the collaboration with people who strive to make their lives more meaningful through mature tastes and sensibilities. With ‘customer satisfaction’ as our mission we continue to push forward making Romance better. We want to produce a lifestyle filled with a sense of high quality, at the centre of which is good sleep, which gives birth to health and healing power… Based on more than seventy years of the experience we’ve built up since our founding, we continue again and again to challenge ourselves.
