ESPEC Quality is more than a word



Putting the ESPEC ideal into products

ESPEC’s products can be used in more than 400,000 different ways depending on how each one such as our “test chambers,” “doors,” or “freezers” are combined with a multitude of optional parts. We also provide a lot of cus- tom-made devices to meet the special needs of our customers. The Fukuchiya- ma Plant houses a production line that is capable of handling a wide variety of small orders as it efficiently creates the necessary link between orders received and production. The plant is currently home to seven different facilities and, as evident by our newest facilities, QCC (QC circle) activities, 3S (Seiri; organized, Seiton; neat, Seiketsu; clean) activities, and other endeavors, ESPEC spares no effort in improving its production facilities to create goods of the utmost quality.
We also established the Fukuchiyama Training Center on site as the training base for our company's employees and those from other companies. Based on the concept, "The foundation for product creation is in the people," the Fukuchiyama Plant conducts a unique program of education and training. It has introduced an in-company proficiency measurement system in order to train and develop skilled employees able to efficiently produce high quality products, with many employees undergoing the test each year. These efforts, as well as the establishment of “Monozukuri Dojo” (our manufacturing training course), which offers a variety of curriculums for the acquisition and improvement of production-related knowledge and skills, make clear that our focus is on HR development.

Mother plant in the globally expanding ESPEC group Fukuchiyama Plant

The Fukuchiyama Plant began operations in 1974. The Osadano Industrial Park in Kyoto Prefecture established advanced self-imposed restrictions with regard to environmental impact, which was rare at the time. We selected it as our production center as we strived to create sophisticated and diversified products. Today, all the power used in the Fukuchiyama Plant is derived from renewable energy. The plant is home to various facilities such as the Fukuchiyama Training Center and the ESPEC History Hall P3 (P CUBIC), which exhibits a rebuilt workshop from the time our company was founded and displays our products to date, in addition to seven different manufacturing buildings. Many people from around Japan and abroad visit the plant.
