KYOCERA Global Service Awards 2014

2014 Service Award_FinalA key focus of KYOCERA is to be the leading service organisation in the printer/copier industry. In order to deliver outstanding service quality, the excellent product knowledge, technical understanding and training of KYOCERA’s own and partner technician’s is paramount.

To recognise the expertise in quality and service, KYOCERA is inviting all of its contractual partners’ technicians to compete against each other in an exciting contest to prove their skills at the ’KYOCERA Global Service Awards’.

 “Experience your Excellence” by setting the benchmark of service quality.

By participating in the contest, technicians can prove that they are in fact, the best KYOCERA technician in Australia. The national champion will receive the title of ’Australia’s Best KYOCERA Technician’ for 2014. What’s more, they will also win the ’Trip of a Lifetime’ to visit the KYOCERA headquarters in Kyoto, Japan.

The competition is divided into two stages, starting with an online pre-qualification questionnaire. The second stage involves the highest scoring technicians participating in a one-day elimination contest of theoretical and practical knowledge.

KYOCERA Global Donates Solar Power Generating Systems to Schools in Africa

We’re pleased to hear that Kyocera Global has recently donated solar power technology to schools in Tanzania and Uganda. An ongoing project since 2009, Kyocera Global has been providing solar power generating systems to schools in Africa which now totals 28 schools in five years. Kyocera has donated to schools that have no access to electricity with the project able to provide electricity for much needed storage batteries, lamps, TV sets, radios and general lighting. With additional installations at seven schools in the last fiscal year, donations have already been made to a total of 28 schools, with seven more to follow by March 2014.

Tanzania Solar Donation

Kyocera believes in the great possibilities of the young generation in Africa and hopes that its donations in Tanzania and Uganda will help further the education of students who carry the future of the countries on their shoulders. To directly convey these hopes, donation ceremonies were held in which a company representative interacted with the teachers and students.

Kyocera started research into solar energy in 1975 when then-president Dr Kazuo Inamori first recognized the long-term potential for solar technology to contribute to global energy demand. Shortly after, in the early 1980’s, the company began providing solar power systems to regions without electricity in Pakistan, China and Nepal. Kyocera remains strongly committed to its business philosophy of utilizing solar energy for the protection of the environment and the improvement of people’s lives.

Long term leadership has its rewards

Kyocera Corporation, the global parent company of Kyocera Document Solutions, was originally founded by Dr Kazuo Inamori in April 1959 as a small suburban workshop where 28 young colleagues pursued big dreams. Over his 35 years as president, Dr Inamori turned a small business, Kyoto Ceramic Co Ltd into the global brand we know today, Kyocera Corporation.

Kyoto Ceramics first product was a U-shaped ceramic insulator (known as a Kelcima) for use within early television picture tubes. In 2012, Kyocera is a highly diversified global enterprise. The long lasting ceramic technology has continually developed and can today be found in a variety of products such as drill components, ceramic knives, computer chips, solar panels and printers/copiers.

It is the business philosophy of Dr Inamori that has driven the growth of Kyocera. The Kyocera Philosophy, founded by Inamori, relates to life and management. Its central principle is to “Do what is right as a human being,” a concept included in all decision making. By showing the importance of fairness and diligent effort, it serves as a paradigm for conduct.

The book, Amoeba Management: The Dynamic Management System for Rapid Market Response focuses on Inamori’s business philosophy and the unique leadership system he developed over decades, both as an entrepreneurial founder of high-tech companies and in guiding numerous other multinational, multi-billion dollar enterprises.

Inamori is widely regarded as Japan’s most respected living business leader. Simple, precise micro-divisional accounting systems distribute management responsibility into small, self-supporting units called amoebas, which can help organisations achieve a high degree of flexibility to accommodate ever-changing markets. All amoeba members are encouraged to focus their creativity on accomplishing common goals. The Amoeba Management System has been adopted successfully by more than 400 companies around the world.

“We pursue boundless dreams by accepting the challenges that others prefer to avoid. We believe that a strong will can make dreams come true, and that limitless effort can overcome any obstacle.” – Dr Kazuo Inamori

These beliefs from Kyocera’s history remain the driving force behind Kyocera’s growth. The aim is to become a creative company that grows continuously throughout the future. Kyocera Group employees around the world have adopted this pioneering spirit and personify Kyocera’s path to growth.
