The electric-machinery-and-apparatuses manufacturing industry "OMRON Sun" in Beppu-shi, Oita Prefecture, part of Japan's southern island, was commended by the Minister of Health, Labour and Welfare for the record of years of disability employment.

Currently 31 workers who are disabled out of 61 employees produce the electric part of control apparatus, etc.

The industry has continued the staff assignment, or the improvement of equipment suitable for a disability to improve the work environment so that every worker with disability can commit.

For example, in the manufacturing department where Deaf/hard of hearing workers are posted, the light is installed to tell them the progress condition of work .

The OMRON Sun was started as a joint stock company of Japan Sun Industries in Beppu and OMRON in Kyoto in 1972.
