We started our company in 1950 as “a metal mold manufacturing company” but four years later, we started focusing our attention on the field of “automotive parts” before anybody else. Since then we have steadily expanded our business, while taking advantage of our high technology for parts manufacturing accumulated in metal mold manufacturing. During the early stage of our company, “bonnet type” was the mainstream in the truck industry, but we actively challenged manufacturing “COE (Cab Over the Engine) type” upon the request from a major customer, which was non-mainstream trend at that time. This indefatigable spirits for manufacturing products created a big movement in our company to greatly influence the future of our company. It turns out that COE type has become the mainstream of truck industry. Since then we have achieved a rapid growth and have become the peerless manufacturer of large automotive products pushed by the rapid economic growth era.
Our former president, a founder of our company, had a strong belief that “we do not need management principle, but the company should change itself according to the change of era.” Therefore we had kept this idea for a long time, but reviewing our management style was inevitable after the collapse of the Bubble Economy. In 2003 we have set three management principles such as “breaking away from the business depending on the only one company,” “departure from subsidiary character,” and “securing 5％ ordinary profit” based on the basic principles of “Independence,” “Self-help” and “Self-responsibility.” We actively make investment in research and development so that we can have new business development. Furthermore, we proactively improve quality to maintain our stable business, instead of being in a passive manner. As a part of our proactive activities, we have positively acquired ISO, which is a business passport, and have made everyday efforts to manage and maintain quality and safe working rment.
We are now standing at the stage called the 21st century. We, “FORM Co., Ltd.,” seek to be and vigorously push forward for “the one and only company” that can offer high-quality variety of products in a small lot to meet the needs of our customers in total production line from development to assembly with our past superior experience and knowhow.
