Since its establishment in 1972, Daiwa Kasei has contributed to the growth of the automotive industry through the development of new products with an unfaltering commitment to “fastening” throughout all its processes to meet the needs of its customers. To maintain our commitment to “fastening,” we need to be constantly forging ahead as the top runner manufacturing “fastening” components and need to have the basic concept that supports the base of “product making.” Our endeavors have always reflected the value we place on the concept of “making our production equipment” rather than simply developing components.
In the spirit of consistently valuing and pursuing our two guiding principles of “Unfaltering commitment to fastening” and “making our production equipment,” we will continue to realize all aspects of “fastening” by uniting society as well as joining people and the environment.
❶ Management philosophy
Company Credo ”Harmony”
Not only harmony within the company,but also the integration of harmony on a broaders scale is essential. In other words,integration that is based on family harmony leads to the development of the company,the local community, and international society. It is this concept that is the fundamental spirit of our company.
"We train and protect people."
"Conversation and participation"
Our goal is to develop truly talented people who accept the spirit of harmony, can mutually converse and participate with others, and can contribute to the society.
Philosophy of the Company Founder, Hamakichi Kojima
”Our company credo does not embrace the concept of expanding the size of our company, but does embrace consistent manufacturing of good products.”
The founder wrote this in his notebook and overcame countless difficulties and hardships. This philosophy lives on in the current Daiwa Kasei.
