KATAKEN SEIKO CO., LTD. > Recruitment

Chief of G2 Section in Oita Factory of KATAKEN SEIKO; Joined the company in 2000

Started as the first female processor, and now a section chief. The more skills I have, the more interesting my work becomes.

After graduating from high school, I enrolled as one of the first students at a local technical college, where I learned the basics of manufacturing. I joined Kataken Seiko as the first female processor, and was assigned to a department where I used wire discharge processing machines to process parts. It was the first time for me to use the machines, but I learned things on the job from my mentors. I’m now responsible for formulating parts manufacturing schedules, arranging things with other sections, and creating CAM programs for wire discharge machines. I reflect my processing experience into programs—it’s always nice to hear people say that “programs which are made by people with knowledge of processing are well made and take into account of what we need.”

I always enjoy my work.

I have two children who are currently in elementary school. I definitely didn’t want to quit my work when there was a change in my lifestyle such as getting married and having kids. People in Kataken welcomed me back warmly after my maternity leave.
When I was hunting for a job, my school introduced me to a number of large companies, but one teacher recommended Kataken to me and said, “Kataken will teach you a lot of things. I’m sure it will be great for you.” And that teacher was right. I’ve been with the company for 20 years and still enjoy working every day.

Confident in high quality and reliable technology—a manufacturer where honest people gather.

After graduating from university, I joined the company as a new graduate, and since then I’ve worked in a wide range of divisions, including processing, design, development, and sales. I’m leading the divisions of sales and design in the Sales Engineering Division.
Usually, dies, machines, and presses are handled in separate specialist companies, but our strength is that we handle all of them in house. All of our products are of a high quality, and we’re confident they will sell well once customers come to know of our high technical capabilities and superior quality.
To this end, both sales and engineering are essential.

Manager of Sales Engineering Section, Head Office Factory, Manufacturing Headquarters 2, Kataken Seiko; Joined the company in 1993

I want to work with people like this.

One of the things I learned at Kataken Seiko is “the spirit to try without fear of failure and not to give up until the end.” Because of this corporate culture, I’ve been able to take on a variety of challenges ever since I was young. I feel that the accumulation of these experiences is an invaluable asset I have under my belt. To join our company, all you need is a desire for monozukuri and a willingness to see things through to the end, not the knowledge of dies or molds. All of our employees are truly honest and warm, so go ahead, take the plunge and join the manufacturing scene.
