Company Values

Making superior products by nurturing our employees’ talent

What we believe

We believe that the progress of our company goes hand-in-hand with the development of our employees.

We believe it is important that each and every member of our staff learns self-reliance and unites their efforts with their colleagues. By encouraging co-operation and friendly rivalry, we believe that we can increase our collective speed and wisdom to make the impossible possible. Making this the focus of our working philosophy will lead to continuous positive development for ourselves and our employees. We believe this will satisfy our customers while fulfilling our duty to making positive contributions to society.

In Japan today, difficulties in manufacturing are increasing, and the path we have chosen is not an easy one. Yet we are determined to persevere through a genuine desire to make our products better, faster and more affordably than anywhere else, and so become a world-class machining company.

We work tirelessly, step by step, towards these goals for Urano and our employees.
