At the NGK Group, we have passed down the company’s founding spirit through the generations, guided by our corporate philosophy of creating new value through products that contribute to a better society.
In 2019, the NGK Group celebrates its 100th year. We have taken a new look at the philosophical framework that has guided us up to now, and established the NGK Group Philosophy.
The people who come together in the company are what supports each business activity. Every person aims high and diligently pursues challenges with a broad perspective and without fear of change. We encourage teamwork that transcends national boundaries based on mutual respect and bringing out the best in each other. We value such employees and support this motivation.
We go beyond meeting specifications to look at the path ahead. We hone our own unique technology to create products that exceed customer expectations. Manufacturing, sales, engineering and all the divisions that support these areas work with dedication, partner with those outside the company, and constantly seek out new challenges.
Our founder, Kazuchika Okura, left us these words: “We must work not only for the benefit of company profits, we must work to benefit the nation with a spirit of dedication.” This is why our goal goes beyond the simple pursuit of profits. Our goal is to contribute to the well-being of people all over the world. Each one of us will strive with dedication and self-discipline as a member of our organization toward meeting the expectations of the international community. We believe such a sustained effort earns the trust of society, which is the foundation of everything.
Our vision, Road to 2050, will not be a simple endeavor. However, I am increasingly confident that we can realize our goal of contributing to the resolution of societal issues and achieving sustainable growth for the NGK Group.
