Message from the Plant Manager

Toshinori Nishimura, Plant Manager

The Tamaki Plant is located in the Mie Prefecture town of Tamaki, just west of the Ise Grand Shrine. We mainly peoduce toner, covering everything from development to production of toner cartridges, which are consumables for multifunctional products (MFPs) and printers. We have placed a special focus on CSR activities with the aim of achieving the sustainable growth and development of these vital operations. Nestled amid nature's abundance, the plant is adjacent to towns as well as farmland. That's why we place a priority on environmental conservation, coexistence with local communities, and workplace safety.

As part of our environmental efforts, we apply our own standards that are stricter than legal requirements to manage industrial wastewater, dust, and other pollutants generated by our plant. Tamaki encompasses wetlands that have been confirmed to be a habitat for rare species of animals and plants. We are helping to develop a biotope there that can be used for studying rare animal species and environmental education. In an effort to build bridges with local communities, we not only conduct our own cleanup activities in the area near the plant but also participate in local cleanup events. As part of our youth development initiatives we offer learning opportunities that include environmental classes at local elementary schools and work experience programs for junior high school students.

In order to ensure a safe workplace, we make continuous improvements to our ISO 45001-certified occupational health and safety management system. On top of that we have the Perfect 5S, an in-house standard that makes sure the 5Ss (i.e., sort, set, shine, standardize, and sustain) are in perfect order, to make our workplace completely safe and accident-free. Through these efforts, we continuously work toward achieving our own sustainable development goals, and report on our activities to local communities, suppliers, and local government agencies at regular CSR briefing sessions.
