In addition, that market size (production total) accounts for 1.5 trillion yen and represents approximately 3% of the GDP. This market holds a key position in Japan's manufacturing industry.
Q.2 What are "casting molds and dies?"
A.2 Molds and dies are used in various industries and fields such as resins, plastics, rubber, and glass, etc., and among these examples, casting molds and dies are used for metal applications. The casting, which is made from liquefied metal and then formed (or casted), is divided in two major categories: ferrous casting and nonferrous casting. Our company manufactures the casting molds and dies used in the automotive and industrial vehicle industries.
Q.3 In what direction is your company headed?
A.3 In the automotive industry, there was a sharp rise in activity toward making things more "lightweight." Our company also anticipated this and steadily increased the ratio of nonferrous casting molds and dies. In the automotive industry as well, we continue to strive in order to build even stronger ties with key manufacturers and their related companies.
Q.4 What type of consideration is given to employee training?
A.4 Since a "company equals the people" who are in it, we give full consideration to the appropriateness and abilities of the individual when he/she enters the company and to his/her preferences, etc. Then, we provide training and instruction to focus the individual on an "all-a-round" or "specialist" path.
Q.5 What type of consideration is given to female employees?
A.5 Our company strictly adheres to the "Conservation system for working females" (grant leave or alleviate working conditions prior to or after childbirth, grant maternity leave benefits for child-rearing, and alleviate working conditions, etc.) established under law so that women can continue to work after marrying and having children. As such, even if working temporarily is not possible, we are also making arrangements, if desired, so mothers can "telecommute."
