Corporate Philosophy Vision and Code of Conduct
The Meiden Group’s Corporate Philosophy expresses the Group’s dedication to helping solve client issues and ensuring client satisfaction by providing high-quality products, services and solutions. We want to use these business activities as a way to actively help solve global environmental problems and other issues of public concern, helping create a world of greater abundance in future. To achieve these aims, we will need to continue taking on challenging ventures. These concepts are explored in our Corporate Philosophy.
Meidensha was founded by Hosui Shigemune as an urban workshop providing electrical machinery manufacturing and repair services. Our founder’s ambitions have been kept alive since our founding. They have evolved along with the changing times, becoming the shared values that form the basis of all our business activities. Our Corporate Philosophy has guided the Meiden Group’s growth through the years as the world has matured. We are dedicated to becoming a company that plays an essential role in the world, continuing to take on the challenges of creating new technologies and value.
Meiden Group Corporate Philosophy （MISSION）
Form and vision to achieve （VISION）
Values to uphold (values shared by employees)
‘Quality connecting the next’ is the corporate slogan Meidensha uses to bring together all the ideas of our Corporate Philosophy into a single phrase.
Meidensha’s concept of quality encompasses product and service quality, as well as the people and technology underpinning this quality. It means harnessing the integrity and flexibility of our employees to build stronger ties with clients around the world. It means bringing value to the world by providing it with unique products and reliable services created from our technical expertise and aligned with the needs of the times and the market. It means bringing value to the world by providing it with unique products and reliable services created from our technical expertise and aligned with the needs of the times and the market. When two become one, a new connection is created. This observation is as true for connections between Meidensha and clients as it is for connections between individuals and the community as a whole. Meidensha’s growing network of connections and the strengths we have acquired over the years will fuel the energy of the next generation.
We are building client confidence and satisfaction while making a positive contribution to the all-important lives of end users. The Meiden Group’s quality is leading the way to a future of greater abundance. Quality and connections lie at the core of our unchanging mission.
In order to realize our Group Corporate Philosophy, we must identify the direction for each individual employee to aim towards and provide signposts to help them proceed without losing their way. To enable us to do so, we have made these five actions our watchwords. The actions are mutually linked, with one action calling forth the next, creating a cycle of action and growth. Based on this image, we call this the Meiden Cycle.
By sharing and practicing the Meiden Cycle as the ethos underlying our actions, we seek to maximize the growth cycle for each of our employees. And at the same time, this means that the Meiden Group continues to grow sustainably, looking towards the realization of the Group Corporate Philosophy.
