Okamura Way comprises Okamura’s Mission (our management approach), the Okamura Declaration (what we want to be), and Okamura Basics (the values we hold dear). At the core of all of these is our perspective “Where people can thrive.”
We aim to ensure that every employee of the Okamura Group acts with a consistent mindset, using Okamura Way as a guide in their daily business activities and decision-making.
In this way, our individuality, our work, the people we work with, and society will all thrive. Ultimately it will help us to contribute to the realization of a society in which all people can work and live with vitality and smiles.
The term “Where people can thrive” expresses the idea that each person works at their best when they demonstrate their individuality and expertise, as well as a state of co-creation and the creation of new value through good relationships with all the people and organizations around them.
In other words, if each of us can make the most of ourselves, and make the most of each other, then our work, our company, and society as a whole will come alive. Based on this idea of “Where people can thrive,” we at Okamura are committed to contributing to society through the realization of a sustainable society.
“Contribute to society by creating environments where people can thrive with rich ideas and reliable quality.”
In today’s changing value system, one in which sustainability is becoming ever more important, the vitality of every individual will lead to solutions to social issues.
Based on this belief and our sense of corporate purpose, we will continue to create places.
“Loving people, creating places”
To increase the number of people who can live their lives in their own way, and to build a society full of smiles, Okamura will continue loving people and creating places where they can thrive.
Since our founding, we’ve developed our business with high aspirations for manufacturing, and created a variety of places, from offices and commercial and logistics facilities to hospitals and schools.
At the root of all of this has always been the heartfelt need to “love people.”
That’s why we at Okamura believe it’s important not only to increase material wealth, but also to develop spiritual wealth, and to live in your own way, choosing your own methods of working and living while respecting one another. If we can increase the number of such people, we can change our society to one that is full of smiles.
To make all the people involved with us smile.
We will continue loving people and creating places where they can thrive.
Five approaches that each employee can use as a basis for their daily actions to realize Okamura’s Mission.
Our Founding Spirit, Corporate Philosophy, and Motto are the root of our culture.
Keep them in mind in order to fully understand and practice Okamura Way.
At Okamura Manufacture (Okamura), which was founded jointly by young engineers who’d lost their jobs after the war, all employees are equal and part of a team with the shared goal of making the company prosperous. “Cooperative Industry" represents the philosophy that has been in place since the founding of the company: to produce great results through the cooperation of all these equals.
Innovative Creation Cooperation Being Cost Conscious Saving for Future Social Responsibility
Our Corporate Philosophy expresses the management basis for Okamura’s growth, and consists of five words imbued with the spirit of the company’s founding. “Innovative Creation” means to invent world-class products that do not yet exist elsewhere, and “Cooperation” is essential to achieve this. “Being Cost Conscious” and “Saving for Future” are investments for growth. Finally, “Social Responsibility” encapsulates the spirit of giving back to the society that supports our company.
Quality pays for itself.
Our Motto conveys the high quality of Okamura’s products and our pursuit of this quality. Our basic management policy states the need for internationally competitive technology and quality, a commitment to unsparing research, and the provision of good products at low cost, reflecting the strong awareness of the need for superior manufacture we’ve held since the company’s inception.
