 S-POOL offers services tailored to individuals with various disabilities, and, in partnership with over 350 enterprises, is looking to expand hiring opportunities and societal integration in community life.

 Harima will dispatch its 3 new employees to an indoor agricultural facility recently opened by S-POOL in the city of Settsu, Osaka Prefecture, with the aim to promote employment and greater economic self-sufficiency, as well as inclusion in the mainstream society. In addition, the vegetables harvested at the facility will be used at our cafeteria at the Kakogawa Plant, as well as several children cafeterias.
