Aiming for growth through sustainable management
We aim for the goals of the SDGs with three stages – “VISION2020/2025/2030” to achieve by 2029 which is Tokyo Foundry’s 100th anniversary of foundation, to keep dedicating to our society and environment from now and in future. Currently we are working on fields such as “economic growth and recruitment”, “technology innovations” and “welfare”.
Economic growth, Technology innovations
In developing business activities go beyond the framework of a foundry company, we work on technological innovation, new framework, and product development. We also promote stable employment even if we are a small number of elites.
In terms of product development, we are planning to mass produce and release “HACOAS”, the highly durable container made of Styrofoam. This is a groundbreaking original product with low environmental impact jointly developed with Kimura Foundry, to aim to transport agricultural products, maintain their freshness, establish cold chain, and keep traceability of high-quality vegetables.
From 2021, we visit Gunma Prefectural Takasaki High school as a lecturer for choosing career path. We talk about the reality of employment demanded by our society, the changing world situation, and the qualities required to become company executives.
We recruit graduates of Gunma Prefectural Maebashi Senior Special Needs School and Gunma Prefectural Shibukawa Special Needs School as our permanent employees to work at production sites. After more than five years now, their work performance is excellent, being indispensable to the growth of our business.
We also created a model case of agriculture-welfare collaboration by recruiting employees with disabilities for automated washing work for turnips at PEEKABOO Co., Ltd., the agricultural corporation established in 2021.
As above explained, we would like to continue our business for a long time as a company needed by our society by dedicating to it beyond the limits of foundry industry.
The outlook for the global situation and the business environment is unclear, and there are many issues to be addressed, however, we strongly feel that we would like to show the world the splendor of Japanese castings from Gunma Prefecture as well as that we become a company where our employees and business partners say, “I want my children to join this company”.
