The recent effects of plunging share prices and the appreciation of the yen, together with a delay in introducing an increase in consumption tax, has pushed the national economy into an age of confusion. We are also faced with countless numbers of other problems, such as the recovery work in the wake of the 2016 Kumamoto earthquake, the nuclear meltdown problem, the problems surrounding a low birthrate and greying of society, and the expanding gap in earnings, and it is now vital that we keep a close eye on the future of the national economy.
Amid this environment, Keihin Seimitsu Kogyo is targeting growth in the automotive industry as a manufacturer of automotive components, and it is our intention to continue aiming at this in the future.
In order for us to achieve this, I believe that we must accept the challenge of developing new technologies, improve our on-site capabilities through the substantiation of our Kaizen (improvement) skills, and do everything within our power to train and nurture human resources.
We must also move steadfastly forward to create a fine company where all employees are happy, including an Age-Free Company and Barrier-Free Factories where all workers, regardless of their age, can work safely and with peace of mind.
We are seeking the “new strengths” inherent with people who have the will and courage to take charge of the future. I sincerely hope that you will join KSK and work to achieve growth in the automotive industry alongside us.
