The celebration featured a ribbon-cutting ceremony, traditional Japanese Sakura Ceremony, Kagami-biraki Ceremony, presentations from visiting guests from Hitachi Construction Machinery (HCM), factory and headquarters tours, and a traditional southern BBQ lunch.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony conducted by Mr. Kotaro Hirano, President, HCM Japan, Mr. Masaaki Hirose, President, HCMA, and Mr. Al Smith, Coweta County Commission Chairman also included two of the longest serving employees, Claude Smith (Newnan Facility) and Ray Guerra (Kennesaw headquarters).

    It must be noted that whilst ordering papers on the market at paper writing support, you may get unkind attitude. In the event you are feeling that the bureau is wanting to cheat you, don't purchase term paper from it.
