Uogishi Seiki - from the No. 1 die manufacturer in the Hokushinetsu area to the No. 1 in Japan with its uniqueness in manufacturing
"Why not rely on Uogishi Seiki? And everything will go well" - such reliability cannot possibly be established in a short space of time. We are proud of the organizational strength we have established in the 70 years since our foundation (as of 2016), and the ability not only manufacture quality products, but also to make sound proposals, which is the basis for this reliability. Our company's management philosophy is to suit customers needs for die manufacturing technology, create "customer satisfaction", "well-being of employees", "company profit", and continue to develop. I am confident that our company's profit will be realized only when customer satisfaction and employee well-being are achieved.
New challenges are welcomed. What is required in the current era is the attitude: "be delicate like an angel, and be bold like a devil". We have the desire to face up to new challenges together with young people who are forging a new future. It does not mean that we will have to overcome major hurdles that cannot be easily handled as our first goal. All we have to do is to find our own stride and make effort to bring out good results. Taking action will lead to growth. Our company has adopted the biannual salary system where each employee's achievement against particular targets, which are to be established biannually, is reflected in his/her salary. The targets are established at both the company level and the individual level, and how well the individual has achieved the targets is reflected in his/her salary. Our adoption of such a system shows our desire for employees to keep the spirit of challenge.
From now on, we are striving to enhance our core competence (ability to exceed our competitors) and at the same time to specialize, aiming to become the one and only die manufacturer. In order to do so, we will need to change into a "fabless" manufacturing company who does not own a fabrication factory. We will have to establish the system where we only manufacture some specialized items that cannot be manufactured by other companies and the other items are standardized and manufactured externally. I think the shift to such system is the way for Japanese manufacturing industry to survive in the future. Overseas tie-up is also essential, and our factories are located in Thailand and China. We will promote globalization and keep advancing toward becoming the No. 1 die manufacturer in Japan from this Hokushinetsu area by putting Uogishi Seiki's unique items out into the world market.
