Kai Japan awarded Leonardo Da Vinci prize 2014.

We are proud to announce that Kai Corporation became the first Japanese winner of the prestigious Leonardo da Vinci Prize at its 4th award ceremony held under the auspices of Les Hénokiens and Château du Clos Lucé at the Imperial Hotel Tokyo on Wednesday, 24th September 2014.

The Leonardo da Vinci Prize was founded in 2011 under the initiatives of Les Hénokiens and
the castellan of Château du Clos Lucé to “pass on the treasured heritage to the future
generations in the same way that Leonardo da Vinci passed on his skills to his pupils in the
spirit of the Renaissance”. It recognizes family-owned companies with outstanding cultural values, unique technologies, and their ability to pass them onto the future.
