◆“WE30Ve 2APC Spec” is made in Thailand and also the top sales product there. Your company is the manufacturing site for this product and headquarter must have large expectations on you. What do you think of this point?
OBA：Of course, we are excited about it, but at the same time, we have responsibilities to deliver high quality products in a tight deadline to those who choose our products.
Therefore, I try to regularly “confirm,” “contact” and “report” regarding parts procurement of machining centers, which is I’m in charge of, and schedules of development and assembly processes.
HARADA：I’m in charge of controlling production planning of machining center assembly and machine processing products and quality control. Mr. Oba and I brought a unity in the company by having close communication with site staffs and it helped us build good relationship with them. With all the staffs, we would like to satisfy our customers in all aspects including “quality” and “delivery deadlines” in the future.
OBA：In order to actualize “limited time delivery”, it is necessary to increase the ratio of local procurement from local parts suppliers for machining centers and control schedules by mainly GEMBA staffs. From now on, we want to even improve these points.
◆In addition to building good relationship with your staffs, your big advantage is that Thailand is solely responsible for all production processes of machining centers.
HARADA：Indeed. Regarding “WE30Ve” produced only in Thai factory in particular, we believe that we can provide good service in maintenance to our customers.
OBA：Also, we have parts stock of our machines. We can handle urgent cases of delivering parts.
HARADA：We always work on “Monozukuri (Manufacturing)” while thinking of “what our users would think”. We welcome anyone who is interested in machining center production or thinking of purchasing our products to our factory tours.
Please feel free to contact us.
◆Thank you for today.
