We pledge to ensure day-to-day safety and to bring about an exciting future by constantly tackling challenges in craftsmanship and technological innovation.
Our Corporate Philosophy expresses our mission to provide the world with two forms of value—day-to-day safety and an exciting future—by constantly tackling challenges in craftsmanship and technological innovation, which are our strengths. As employees of Kawasaki Railcar Manufacturing, each of us should take pride in the skills, technologies, and trust that we have together cultivated through craftsmanship and technological innovation, and will continue to take on challenges without allowing that passion to fade. In this pursuit, we seek out new technologies, create things that never existed before, and resolve various social issues. Our unrelenting efforts will realize a future that is more exciting than we can imagine and make it possible for people to live their day-to-day lives with peace of mind.
Protect We ensure safety and quality with high ethical standards.
It is of utmost importance to place safety and quality, which are the foundation of everything we do, at the forefront of our work. Safety means ensuring the physical and mental health of everyone involved and producing products in a safe workplace that our customers can rely on. Quality involves utilizing our advanced technological capabilities and is something we must continue to focus on in order to satisfy our customers. In order to protect safety and quality, it is absolutely necessary that we comply with all rules and for each of us to act with a high sense of ethics.
Gather We respect others and work together as one.
It takes more than one person to develop the skills and techniques of craftsmanship in manufacturing. We need to treat others with respect, always remember to be grateful, and listen to others even if they have different opinions. It is also important to actively try to incorporate the opinions of others. Steadily finding ways to reconcile our opinions can be a great source of power. It is important to work together as a team together not only within our own departments but also with other departments and external parties. To achieve this, it is also important to create an environment in which all employees can exert their full potential.
Challenge We take on challenges with conviction and without fear of failure.
From our founding to the present day, we have created new value by learning from failure and accumulating technology and knowledge. We will continue to take on challenges, never forgetting that simply maintaining the status quo is the beginning of decline, and conscious of the need to link failure to growth. We should also take pride in our history and the high aspirations we have for supporting society. The accumulation of these qualities will enhance the unique value of Kawasaki Railcar Manufacturing. Moving forward, we will continue to take on the challenge of technological innovation with conviction, making full use of the technological and field capabilities we have cultivated.
Accomplish We see our work through to the end with integrity and a sense of responsibility.
Our work is not accomplished by any single action but by steadily and constantly building on one action after another. In order to see our work through to the end, there are three things that we need to keep in mind: integrity, which means being sincere to everyone, even in difficult situations; a sense of responsibility, which means being willing to take ownership; and autonomous action, which means being proactive in completing work. We should demonstrate integrity to the people in front of us, have a sense of responsibility for the task at hand, and take charge in seeing work through to the end.
Create We broaden our horizons and create new value.
Our work is connected to the realization of a prosperous society and a future full of hope. Conscious of how each task relates to society and the future, and without being bound by conventional approaches, we will think of possibilities for contributing to society and thereby ensure day-to-day safety and bring about an exciting future. By taking an interest in each of these possibilities, connecting them, and expanding upon them, we will be able to create compelling products. If we each broaden our horizons and discern the true essence of the issues in front of us, together we will create new value and enhance the Kawasaki brand.
