WANOTEC JAPAN - Our Philosophy -

Message from the CEO

Bringing ideas to life.

Akira Kase, CEO

Wanotec Japan Co., Ltd.

When I got started in this industry over 50 years ago, metal presswork was still generally viewed as something done by traditional craftsmanship. While traditional craftsmanship is very valuable, it is not enough to handle the changing times. That idea led to the pursuit of the technology innovation and management innovation that have fueled our growth into an indispensable partner for several of the world's major manufacturers.

The finches of the Galapagos Islands altered the lengths of their beaks over a short time in response to environmental changes. Like those finches, we need to be able to adapt to the environment we find ourselves in if we want to survive.
Survival of the fittest is a principle that's as key to the business world as it is the natural world. I think it's important to have a passion for change. Change should be something done constantly and proactively instead of something that's simply passively accepted. The notion of bringing ideas to life is one of my guiding principles.

By harnessing the power of the harmony that governs the natural world, I want to create one of the world's leading technology providers while satisfying clients, giving back to the community and growing the Company and its employees. My unwavering commitment to this vision will see Wanotec Japan continue to evolve. We have a bright future ahead.
