This “Corporate Vision” embodies the reason for the existence of the Shinko Group.
Our company has adopted technological development as one of the most important guidelines of its management since its foundation. It aims to make great strides with the development and the accumulation of new technologies as its driving force.
We aim to be the most excellent manufacturing company in the world by concentrating our wisdom and ideas towards the manufacturing site where profits are generated for the enterprise.
We aim for unlimited progress, while retaining enthusiasm for sustained creation and development in the field of electronics, which is advancing at a very quick pace.
We promote business by meeting globally diversifying needs, while bearing in mind coexistence and co-prosperity in the international society as an international corporation.
Society and enterprises are comprised of groups of people that cannot coexist without good human relations. We will promote business through management plans based on a people-friendly approach.
The Shinko Group has been developing and producing superior products to become a business partner trusted by customers all over the world. Electronic equipment and semiconductor technologies are continuing to progress rapidly and we are always expected to meet such demands.
By practicing the corporate vision, we strive to work in harmony with all stakeholders including customers, business partners, shareholders, the local community and employees. Our aim is to enrich the lives of people all over the world and contribute to the development of society through manufacturing.
Our founder, Mr. Takekio Mitsunobu (1914 ~1992), promoted business for almost half a century and had a dream of " developing Shinko as a total manufacturer of the semiconductor package". The things he had continuously valued from its founding were manufacturing better products as a result of always being at the manufacturing site, nurturing talent, efficient resource utilization, and support of the local community.
We aim for "infinite growth" and developing excellent manufacturing sites by basing all of our employee's efforts on our founding philosophy.
The spirit of economizing embodies the principles that we follow in corporate business activities such as investing wisely in necessities and minimizing waste. We strive to use limited resources effectively by developing a wide and flexible vision, and racking our brains.
[ Mr. Takekio Mitsunobu's executive office ]
This wooden building was relocated to Kurita when the first plant was constructed in 1957. Originally it was used as a silk reeling factory before becoming the welfare facilities at the Fujitsu Suzaka plant. Mr. Mitsunobu took over it from Fujitsu and he reassembled it at the Kurita Plant. The second floor had an executive room and a drawing room. Even after Mr. Mitsunobu became the chairman of the board, he kept using this building saying this was sufficient. Although he invested in manufacturing, he never spent money for such things as remodeling rooms which never contribute directly to company business.
We believe the basis of our business and the solution to all problems are at the manufacturing site. Each individual fills a leading role, works spontaneously and improves things continuously in order for the manufacturing site to innovate as the source of the profits.
"Go to the site and find the problems. After finding them, never leave until you determine the cause."
"Just as having dreams is important in our life, having dreams, great ambitions and high aims in business is also important. However, we must have a soroban because dreams without realistic funding will never come true."
*Soroban is a traditional Japanese calculator. It also signifies the calculation of profit and loss.
"Great ambitions and dreams are absolutely necessary for training the young workers. I think managers need to have dreams so they can cultivate their insight. We can develop strategies based on the interpretations of those dreams such as 'Keep developing technologies on our own. It might produce something new.' So I think we should not work randomly, but have a dream."
We strive to live in harmony with the local community and environment, use resources wisely, and improve each employee's well being by working and caring for each other. We encourage responsibility for all individuals, the use of limited natural resources and the global environment while remembering our appreciation.
In 1990, two years prior to when Mr. Mitsunobu's life of 78 years came to a close, he established the Hokushin Scholarship Foundation by donating 300,000 Shinko shares from his retirement payment. He believed that each person was an asset to a company and to the society in the future, so the education of a person would continue to get more important. This foundation has been offering scholarships to students of science, engineering and medicine every year.
