Taguchi Metals Corporation has continued to strive, and has maintained operations with staying out of the red and no workplace accidents since its establishment in 1970.
We strive to become a company that is dedicated to recycling metal resources effectively, promoting environmental conservation, and contributing to local communities through efforts such as collecting even the smallest pieces of metals.
Chairperson and Managing Director,
The company was established in 1970, when I was 31 years old.
I was convinced that the scrap metal trade would be a perpetual and promising business and decided to start my own business.
I am from Kumamoto Prefecture and joined Sowa Metals K.K. in Edogawa Ward, Tokyo. Here, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to hear various valuable stories from many company presidents in the same trade, which I have used as reference for my own business.
My father’s farm work education also proved extremely useful in every turn of my life, and in the company, I have always kept a keen eye on maintaining a safe factory environment and also recognize the importance of providing employees with a stable life.
My father and the presidents of the other companies taught me that the foundation in managing a company was to ensure that the employees do not feel uneasy or uncomfortable in performing their tasks and to eliminate dissatisfied in their daily lives. Of course there were difficult times, but we have been able to carry on operations with staying out of the red and no workplace accidents.
I believe that such achievements were only possible due to the shared awareness of harmony, a spiritual conception of coexistence and mutual prosperity, between the company and its employees. We hope to continue to serve our clients and the society on the basis of this policy.
I have now been appointed as Chairperson, and as my successor, Noriaki Taguchi has been appointed as CEO.
I hope to have your continued patronage for our new CEO.
CEO and Managing Director,
In November 2013, I, Noriaki Taguchi, assumed the position of CEO of Taguchi Metals Corporation.
On the basis of our corporate philosophy of coexistence and mutual prosperity with the local community, and always putting the benefits of our clients and the local community first, we will strive to maintain operations with staying out of the red and no workplace accidents, a record we have accomplished since our inception.
Succeeding the management policy of my predecessor, we will ensure further technological advances to address the various changes in the metal recycle market, strive to provide a safe workplace and promote environmental conservation.
Employees are valued and nurtured through training and education sessions to ensure that they are capable of meeting the requests of the local community and our clients. We will never be satisfied with our present situation, and will continue to challenge ourselves into the future.
We hope to receive your continued support and patronage as we exert our efforts to keep a beautiful factory, nurture courteous employees, and maintain operations with staying out of the red and no workplace accidents.
