Mayekawa Manufacturing Company has expanded its business by focusing on freezing and compression technologies ever since its establishment in 1924. As a thermal engineering company we have long contributed to providing business solutions to our customers based on these technologies and in turn continuously evolved our technology and services. This process is indicative of our business development style whereby Mayekawa creates ‘cooperation’ based on trust with our customers to develop ‘Basho’, Mayekawa's unique concept of problem solving in which Mayekawa engineers and our customers collaborate closely by sharing a common challenge and vision, and synthesizing knowledge without functional/organizational boundaries. Synchronization with customers' vision is the key, and in such Mayekawa has succeeded in creating a unique market where no other competitor can enter, thus freeing competitive energies for utilization in creative initiatives.
As a result of this Mayekawa-unique approach we have generated over 100 small subsidiaries in Japan and 40 extra subsidiaries overseas, all of them small enough to keep close relations with each customer. We call these small entities Doppo or Independent Units.
Recently, however, we have realized that these small units alone may not satisfy the needs of a growing global market which is at the same time becoming more and more complex. Mayekawa, therefore, has decided to consolidate and reorganize the Independent Units both in Japan and abroad, based on industry sectors in order to meet the greater and deeper needs of our customers.
