The Mazak Way
High Quality - Advanced - International
Machine tools are called “Mother Machine” because they relate to the manufacturing of almost every product around us and are very important in supporting the base of “world manufacturing.” Our mission as a machine tool maker is to enrich people’s lives and contribute to society by developing and providing high performance machine tools that can produce high accuracy work in a short time.
Mazak's corporate philosophy has three core elements: “High Quality”, “Advanced” and “International” and these values have underpinned the development of “world manufacturing” by offering machine tools that satisfy manufacturers' needs. We focus our efforts to develop products that enable breakthrough improvements in productivity. We have set up more than 70 technology centers and technical centers around the world in order to provide perfect total solutions and fast support on a global level.
We were among the first to start foreign production as a Japanese machine tool maker. Following the establishment of Mazak Corporation in the USA, we expanded our production base worldwide to include the UK, Singapore and China, as well as further expanding our Japanese manufacturing operations. We are the only machine tool maker to have established a global production system. With these local plants, we have been able to provide high quality service and have built strong relationships based on mutual trust with customers from all over the world.
We will continue to take on new challenges as the world’s top machine tool maker. It is a great honor to us that we contribute to the wealth of people’s lives “anytime, anywhere” through manufacturing.
