Takumi () is, in Japanese, an “Artisan” or a “Master”. This is a very important concept in the Japanese auto industry. Takumi technicians are trained to become experts in automotive components’ assembly, repair, and quality inspection. They must be able to work with precision and sophistication, ensuring that each inspected and repaired vehicle meets the highest standards of quality.”
