Japanese firm EMAR harnesses the knowledge and expertise of its employees to provide high quality construction manufacturing and high-performance staffing for its clients.
"We don’t limit ourselves to design, but also handle the staffing required to implement those designs."
Hideki Hayasaka, President, EMAR Co., Ltd.
The fundamental premise for any company is to find a need in the market and provide for it. Japanese firm EMAR is a prime example, being able to provide both manufacturing capabilities and temping staff on an OEM and ODM basis for its clients.
Founded in 1999, the company has diversified its portfolio from supplying windows to providing temporary staff in light of Japan’s aging population and demographic challenges. With its windows, EMAR focuses on the Japanese principle of monozukuri to ensure the sealing material and the glass are of the highest quality. Indeed, the company’s commitment to performance has allowed it to grow to become the producer of one-third of all of Japan’s double-layered glass windows.
EMAR’s dedication to the kaizen philosophy sees it hold monthly meetings with all its employees to improve the business and encourage new ideas to reach fruition. As company president Hideki Hayasaka explains: “It’s an opportunity to connect your ideas with those of a colleague while brainstorming, allowing employees to reach new heights.”
This dedication to employee improvement applies to EMAR’s temp staffing work as well. The company provides workers, often from outside of Japan, on an OEM and ODM basis. EMAR dispatches experts to act as an intermediary between foreign workers and clients to mediate any cultural differences and ensure as smooth a transition as possible. Mr. Hayasaka reveals EMAR’s main clients are in the construction material sector, where it can provide both temp staffing as well as production capability, and that the company is always looking for new clients to work with in the field.
