Toray Industries, Inc. Aichi Plant
- Q1. Please explain about the plant you are working at.
- Aichi Plant, where I work, celebrated its 70th anniversary on October 2011. The plant has its tradition; 60 years since it first manufactured nylon filament yarns for the first time ever in Japan in 1951, the plant also started producing optical fibers from 1989.
- Q2. What does your department/section do and what work are you in charge of?
- I work in the FY Inspection Section of Toyo Service Inc. in charge of quality inspection of nylon filament yarns.
- Q3. What kind of job do you mainly put a lot of effort into?
- I place emphasis on coordinating with other related departments in order to promptly detect quality defects and take quick measures so that there are no problems for the customers.
- Q4. When do you feel rewarded at work?
- I am encouraged when I see the final product that I had done the quality inspection of its prototype on and was later mass produced.
- Q5. What was your most impressive work?
- It was when I worked as a member of the planning committee for the event to celebrate the Toray Aichi Plant’s 70th anniversary last year. Being able to successfully organize the event was very memorable: coordinating people from other departments and Toray Group companies to host a commemoration ceremony, party for the employees, and tour for employees’ family members as well as publishing a commemorative publication.
- Q6. What is it that you put a lot of effort into in your personal life?
- I am the mother of one son and one daughter, so I enjoy spending time with them going to parks and traveling together on weekends. On weekdays, I play badminton during lunch time, which I have been playing since high school, in order to freshen up. Since my children have started going to elementary school and are old enough to play, I am looking forward to playing badminton with them soon.
