culture of Imabari and beyond.

EPS remains committed to its role in the shipping community and continues to work very closely with
shipyards, striving for innovation, sustainability, and excellence as a leader in the shipping industry.
Through initiatives such as this sponsorship, EPS seeks to strengthen ties within the industry while
championing the growth and development of local communities.

participants in EPS and across the shipping community come together collectively through various
sports, to raise S$1.5million in support of The Mission to Seafarers. Plans are underway for the biannual
ATW this year.

community development and support for local sports initiative,” says Hayasaka Yosuke, Managing
Director at EPS Japan. “This sponsorship represents our dedication to fostering strong connections
