TOUCHENCE INC. 

Touchence was launched by a medium-sized subcontractor. We began taking on the challenges of product development as a collaboration between industry, academia, and government, without a single engineer, because of our desire to create new and unprecedented products and contribute to society.

For these reasons, it is often avoided, but our members were drawn together by a sense of the social importance of what we were seeking to achieve, and our high level of motivation. We have also been blessed with customers, manufacturing partners, and shareholders who shared our desire to develop new products. Together, we have taken on numerous challenges since we were founded in 2011. We will continue to experiment and create new products that change the world, never allowing our ideas to become rigid or inflexible.
