What is Mutual Trading Company to you?
To me Mutual Trading is family. I started working at Mutual Trading a month
after I moved to USA and as an immigrant, adjusting to a new culture and new
language was quite challenging.
The transition could have been more difficult and stressful if not for the help of
Atsuko-san [current VP of the company]. I remember the time she took me to
DMV to help me apply for driver's license. Her help meant so much to me.
I wanted to repay her for everything she has done for me but she said she was
simply returning the favor someone did for her and her family when they first
immigrated to this country and that it would make her happy if I could pass it
on and do the same to someone who needs help.
What is your favorite Mutual Trading products?
Knives! We have great line-up of wa-bocho Japanese knives.
