People are moved, when they see things move.

Rattling cogwheels, jet of steam, hands of people moving restlessly...
Small individual parts, one day, it becomes a big movement. And somehow, this is what moves people's heart.

8 years have passed since KMD started up.
What is KMD? What movemet does it make?
To show that, KMD Forum has been taking place every year since 2010.

Not just making each small parts,
we make the whole with those particulars,
and send them out with strong purpose in each. Real Projects, idea of DTMP,
these pipes cross with each other and leads to the society.

This is how we see KMD as a factory.
