The Hancock-Henderson Quill, Inc.

Take The Quill Along

The Quill traveled in December "07 with Ryan Anderson, formerly of Oquawka, to the island of Honshu, Japan. Ryan was there overseeing the manufacture of a new mining truck at a recently built Komatsu plant.

Ryan is in front of the train station in Hitachinaka in Ibaraki. Hitachinaka is a smaller Japanese town of about 175,000 on the Pacific Ocean northeast of Tokyo.

Ryan also included a photo (not shown) of a three story parking garage-for bicycles. Many people use bikes for transportation to work.

Ryan works for Komatsu America in Peoria as a Production Quality Engineer. He now lives in Washington, IL.

This was his second trip to Japan and was there to oversee the assembly of a new model mining truck.
