WAKABAYASHI would like to provide products that meet the needs of customers while pursuing quality by undertaking special work that other companies avoid, or by consulting with customers from trial production to making them together. "Technology is a spirit of challenge. If a person can accomplish with effort what was impossible in the past, it will be considered as a technical power. It's a win," says Wakabayashi.

By modifying the management philosophy easy to understand, employees clearly understands the company's vision. Instead of saying "making it quickly" or "making it cheaply" to customers, They can explain "WAKABAYASHI manufactures items with this view of engieering concept." Wakabayashi considers its change as a big achievement.

Now WAKABAYASHI's goal is not only to manufacture products as requested, but also to put into shape what WAKABAYASHI designs. Then as the first step, in 2019, Wakabayashi formed the "Takumi (Artisan) Committee" and started activities.

" Manufacturing has a mission to help people and enrich their lives by shaping things that are not yet in the world. If WAKABAYASHI makes such items, all employees would be very excited as manufacturers and will be highly motivated," says Wakabayashi.
