“The Company Is Its People, and The People Are What They Believe”
The current environment surrounding Japanese industry necessitates the con-
tinuous creation of innovative technologies. It requires that companies
transform themselves through those innovations in order to survive in the
global economy. Amid this challenging environment, we at Yamamoto
Manufacturing strive to maintain and improve our high standards of
technology, quality and reliability based on unique production methods
and know-how. Thus we adhere to the key principle that “quality is the life
of manufacturing." The employees of Yamamoto Manufacturing make this
principle part of their lives and devote their full effort to the pursuit of
quality. As a company and corporate community, we strive always to
exceed the limits of possibility.
People are the heart of any company, in any era. Moreover,
people are what they believe. That is why I'm committed, under my
philosophy that "The company is its people, and the people are what they
believe," to the company's eternal progress and the happiness of
employees by doing the best I can to encourage everyone to seek self-
improvement and the highest purpose through dedication to excellence
in their work.
