Initiatives for quality enhancement
With the ever accelerating progress in the manufacturing industry, extensive quality control is expected for each manufacturer. While the certification of ISO9000 series is becoming popular nowadays, NIDEC-SHIMPO pioneered in applying the concept of TQC (Total Quality Control) throughout the company and implemented quality control activities. In 1969, we were awarded with the "Deming Application Prize for Small and Medium Enterprise".
Since then, under the principle of "Never to cause quality issues at customers", production group as well as each of other groups including research and design, sales, administration, have quality control system based on statistical methods. By performing Deming Circle (Plan, Do, Check, Action) diligently, we continue our daily challenge on 'cost', 'service', 'speed' and improve the quality of the product, company and employees and build products that satisfy customers.
"Quality of the product", "Quality of the company", "Quality of the employees". We, NIDEC-SHIMPO consider the word "quality" to be associated not only with the product, but also with the whole company, then with all the employees who work for the company, and this concept is the foundation of our multi-faceted quality improvement activities.
