We place experts in each section and they challenge themselves to create added value in our products with flexible ideas and solid techniques.
We welcome people with a lot of potential to keep creating more value and also promise to unite and co-operate.
“Remain a worthy vessel to create more value.”---- we look forward to applicants who identify with our slogan.
"Getting excited" is the driving force for everything
Representative Director & President
Creating that exciting feel is extremely important for us, because that is what defines the value of the company. First, we as creators need to be excited. Once we create an exciting product, we can share that excitement with our customers. Working hours account for a big amount of our time in life. If we can enjoy those hours in any way, it will lead to a better quality of life. For us to become a good company, it is crucial for us to feel the excitement from within. This is our belief.
Build a relationship of trust to expand my work
Planning and Sales Department / Tokyo branch
I'm out of my office for about a half of the week. My job is route sales mainly. I’m focusing on building a relationship of trust with our customers. It makes my work be expanded, but it is relatively hard.In my office, I do clerical work like preparing business talk, arranging to send the products, and so on. As my job includes many different things, I am being careful with managing the schedule and doing my task efficiently.I hope to work with those who act and think themselves hard. People having a very patient personality are much better.
Developing materials on the basis of the sales planning
Development Department Director / Team leader of Sales Division
I’m in charge of developing new fabric materials.At first glance every fabric material looks alike, but it’s slightly different. There are a lot of process like spinning, knitting, staining and so on until fibers become fabric. The combinations of where we get fibers from, what fibers we mix, and where we knit them, is infinite. I feel such a sense of accomplishment when we can make our ideal fabric along the use, design and cost.While I buckle down to develop new fabric, I go all over Japan as a sales staff.We welcome the people who can give anyone a proper greeting and are always energetic.
Recognizing the characteristics of shipped products
Fukusaki Product Center / Staff
Currently, I am in charge of unloading and shipping products at the distribution center. This is where all the Shirasagi products are sent out to all over Japan. Since making one mistake here can lead to much bigger problems, I work daily with a very strong feeling of responsibility. I would like to plan and sell my own products in the future. Working at the distribution center lets you distinctly recognize the characteristics of the products being shipped out seasonally. Being able to gain such knowledge in the field has been very productive for myself.
Link Our Achievement and Pride to the Future
Toyotomi Factory / Factory Manager
"Partial use of fabrics" has become a standard nowadays, and most companies employ this method. Actually, this was something Shirasagi familiarized about 20 years ago. We pride in these kinds of achievements, and we are always devoted to adding some extra value. The merit to owning a domestic factory is the speed of information distribution. We can quickly input the good, and quickly remove the bad. The "Made in Japan" brand itself is taken well by the consumers, and it allows us to produce with great care. We aspire daily to create products that are wanted by everybody.
To make manufacturing go along smoothly
Distribution Team leader
Our works start after product planning gains approval. Firstly, we request the designers to make specification of products. Then, we confirm the delivery date and quantity to the Sales Department and order our subcontract factories to make products. After that, we register the information of the products on the internal systems and order secondary materials like a hanger. Regarding the overseas production, we’re in charge of customs clearance. We manage the flow of manufacturing from order to receiving the products by collaborating with each department and relevant parties outside. Sometimes, we handle the planning and management of events like an exhibit.Our company entrust many works to people who have sense of responsibility and enthusiasm regardless of age or gender.
Becoming a company loved by all
Team leader of Sales Division
We are set out to become a company that is loved by the people and the society. That does not mean just the customers who use our products. Our customers, our employees, our employees'families, clients, stakeholders, the community. We believe that sharing joy with everybody involved with our company is the path to creating a valuable future. We will give our upmost effort to being flexible with the changing environment, living out the future, and continue growing as a company.
We think that teamwork and sharing information is important and try to keep our office organized to work comfortably.
We look for people who have independence of mind and cooperativity.
