Message from the Plant Manager

Plant Manager Shigeki Nakamori
Plant Manager Toshinori Nishimura

Tamaki Plant, which is located in Tamaki Town, Mie Prefecture, is the main plant which handles everything from the development to the production of various types of toner (pigment powder transferred to paper in the process of electrostatic photocopying in multifunctional products (MFPs) and printers). In order to permanently grow and develop these important business activities, we are actively working on CSR (an abbreviation for Corporate Social Responsibility) activities. The area around the plant is blessed with an abundant natural environment, and the plant is adjacent to residential and agricultural areas. Therefore, we have particularly considered environmental conservation, coexistence with the community, and realization of a safe workplace as the most important issues.
As for environmental conservation, we ensure thorough management by setting up voluntary management standards that are stricter than legal requirements such as for industrial wastewater and dust. In addition, we regularly hold CSR Report meetings to explain these kinds of environmental activities to neighboring residents, suppliers, and local government agencies.
As for the harmonious coexistence with the local community, we have worked on building a good relationship with local residents by hosting annual summer festival to welcome all our neighbors, as well as taking part such as in clean-up activities at neighboring facilities.
As for the realization of safe workplace, we have worked on practicing in-house standard of "Perfect 5S", which aims for implementing 5S* perfectly, and creating a working environment where employees can work without anxiety.

*5S is a workplace organization method that uses a list of five Japanese words, "Seiri": Sort / "Seiton": Set in Order / "Seiso": Shine / "Seiketsu": Sanitize / "Shitsuke": Sustain
