Enacted in 1987 by the ISO (International Organization for Standardization) for governing quality control and quality assurance, ISO 9001 is a set of international standards setting forth requirements for corporate quality assurance systems rather than for the products themselves.
We have also obtained ISO 9001 certification, which covers quality control issues during the stages of product development and have formulated a quality policy where we rigidly and steadily continue to upgrade our quality assurance system.
We offer products of quality that provide our customers a sense of trust and satisfaction.
ISO 14001 was enacted in 1996 by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) as a set of international standards involving environmental management systems in order to reduce, via ongoing improvements, environmental burdens and risks from the procurement of raw materials, production processes, waste generation, and other factors.
We have also obtained ISO 14001 certification (for our head office, Kamoda factory, and Shinpukuji office), set down our environmental policies based on it, and promote ongoing improvements in our Environment Management System.
Please see here for details on our efforts in environmental conservation.
We co-exist in harmony with the local society and the natural environment.
