We need to be a manufacturer that can sell rather than just manufacture.
Tanaka Metal factory began with a single lathe. We have evolved from craftsmen’s skills using general purpose lathes, through cam style automatic lathes into the current CNC lathes. Our variety of products that we can produce has also changed.
Our first goal at Tanaka Metal Factory now is innovation.
To become a manufacturing group that produces superior products in response to the needs of our customers.
Our second goal is development capability.
To become a manufacturing group that never gives up trying to create products for the benefit of the human race, for the happiness of the human race.
Our third goal is sales.
To become a manufacturer that can analyze how products are sold and create a saleable location. Just manufacturing products isn’t enough
We conduct demonstration sales of the products that we have made. During these demonstration sales times we are able to see the happiness and joy that our products bring to the customers. This gives us more motivation to continue to create products for the good of the human race
Innovation and Development
This is not only important for Tanaka Metal Factory but also for all small to medium sized businesses. The more desire a company has to make better products the better the company will become. When staff members of each department are working hard in order to cultivate innovation and development, the company should grow. Tanaka Metal Factory feels that it is this kind of evolving medium sized business.
