Our Value

Changing the status quo for society and for the world by Creating Added Value

Yu Nakata

Since its establishment in 1974, KEYENCE has strived to create added value.

Our products are used in a wide variety of applications at manufacturing sites around the world, such as automation applications for increased productivity, machine and equipment safety applications, and data acquisition applications for quality improvement. The industries supported at these sites are just as varied including, but not limited to, semiconductors, precision electronics, food, medicine, automobiles, and aviation.

We are proud to offer high value-added products capable of supporting manufacturing efforts around the world.
At KEYENCE, we define our role and social contribution through our goal of changing the status quo by offering products that boast added value never before available.

To help customers recognize the new value created by KEYENCE products, an added value sales team is also an indispensable factor.
At KEYENCE, sales is more than simply introducing products.
The problems customers face are not always limited to recognized problems. Solving any problem requires a thorough understanding of the situation in addition to direct dialog with customers and on-site confirmation, and sometimes it becomes necessary to solve problems customers have yet to even notice.
At KEYENCE this is exactly what our sales team excels at and forms the very foundation of how we create added value.

Going forward, we will continue striving to change the status quo for society and for the world through the added value of our products and sales team.

Message to our applicants

The corporate culture at KEYENCE is made up of various admirable concepts, including concepts of delegation, empowerment, and development.
Most effective way to increase one's experience level is through firsthand opportunities, so we try to delegate tasks as soon as possible.
However, we recognize that simply delegating tasks decreases the possibility of success. That is where our concept of development comes into play, with readily available advice and support. These concepts and more help strengthen the corporate culture at KEYENCE.

Throughout the company, KEYENCE also strives to ensure an open, equal relationship. For example, meetings are designed to emphasize the ideas being presented rather than who the ideas are coming from. Less-experienced workers are also expected to give their opinions freely, and those opinions are never looked down upon by others. Such a working environment is only possible because all KEYENCE employees understand that our overall goal is to create added value.

Meanwhile, we must always strive to build a first-rate team focusing entirely on first-rate results.
At KEYENCE, you will always find experienced teammates who are not only motivated but also willing to push and pull you forward.
Don't hesitate to take advantage of what your coworkers have to offer in your quest to grow as an individual.
