Manufacturing expertise and highly-trained employees bring high efficiency and productivity to the workplace.
AISIN Group strives for smooth communication between man and machines. Its quality products are manufactured in highly computerized plants, where human operators and machines work seamlessly to improve efficiency. Production lines and manufacturing equipment are designed and produced in-house; thus Aisin will remain a step ahead of customers’ needs and environmental requirements. However, human skills and talents make the most important difference in quality and productivity, and new employees are trained in an intensive orientation program called “back-to-the-basic manufacturing workshop.” Here new employees learn Aisin’s manufacturing philosophies and expertise while receiving hands-on experience in the making and operating of machines and equipment.
