Domestic Plants Offer Advanced Sewing Technologies and Quality Control Systems
We operate a domestic network that includes two business offices in Murakami and Takeda as well as a sub-branch. Our in-house production system enables us to deliver high quality merchandise consistently to customers to meet their quality needs.
The Murakami Business Office was among the first in the industry to introduce a Time Sharing System (TSS), computer-aided design (CAD), and computer-aided manufacturing (CAM). This has enabled it to realize work flow and production process efficiencies and reduce labor at an early stage. The Murakami Business Office manufactures a wide range of items, including cut-and-sewn products for men, women, and children. The Takeda Business Office manufactures knit shirts and polo shirts, which require advanced technological prowess. Its expert and long-standing sewing technologies are used for cutting fine parts and expressing unique details.
Both business offices use a double inspection system prior to and during shipment to ensure only the highest quality and safest products are delivered. We have also established production and quality control systems outside of Japan, where dedicated staff manage and supervise partner facilities according to Japanese manufacturing standards.
Ensuring the Same Quality as in Japan is Attained at our Overseas Locations
Our international network now extends to four countries, including affiliate PT. AKURABENITAMA and Indonesia Representative Office, Ho Chi Minh Representative Office in Vietnam, Chittagong Representative Office in Bangladesh, and the Shanghai Technology Center, located within Kurabo Shanghai Co., Ltd. The Shanghai Technology Center, which plays a central role in our overseas operations, employs engineers from Japan who provide technical guidance to achieve consistent quality. Dedicated technical staff are also assigned to other overseas sites as well, where they help to select local partner plants as well as provide guidance, audits and quality control assistance. This network forms a key element of our commitment to continually fulfill customer orders by supplying satisfying products in a consistent manner.
The Chittagong Representative Office in Bangladesh carries out a thorough commitment to quality control that seeks to eliminate shipments of defective merchandise. We proactively emphasize approaches by partner plant owners and management that achieve continual improvements in quality. While maintaining close communication with partner plants, every month we also send technicians from Japan. Whenever a new order is placed, we add Japanese technical instructors to provide technical guidance on sewing as well as to ensure thoroughness in production and quality control practices.
