How Do We Do It?
Through Research & Development
We conduct basic materials research (the foundation for our product development) at our Corporate research laboratories in Hamamatsu and Tsurami in Japan; whilst our product development, improvements and evaluations are conducted at divisional technical centres.
In such R&D work, a market oriented approach that grasps market needs from an early stage is fundamental to the NICHIAS development approach.
NICHIAS's strength lies in our ability to conduct fast development of products matched to customers' needs, by deploying our wide ranging knowledge of products, technologies, industries and end applications.
Through Quality Assurance
At NICHIAS all business divisions carry out quality assurance work so that we can deliver safe and reliable products. This is supported and underpinned by head office's Quality Assurance Department who undertake construction, improvement and maintenance of the company wide quality assurance system.
The origin of our quality assurance lies not only in the employees connected with manufacturing but also in each and every employee embracing pride in our products. Our employees work every day to provide safe, reliable products and services. They do so with a sense of mission to contribute to the development of industry and to support a comfortable society through the products they themselves helped create.
