Japan NGK SPARK PLUG CO., LTD.

WE supported the training program of JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) in Japan

To support JICA's annual training program by country, We toured program attendees from Brazil in the Komaki factory. As a CSR initiative, NGK SPARK PLUG CO., LTD. and CERAMICA E VELAS DE IGNICAO NGK DO BRAZIL collaborated to support the program.

In the factory tour, 2 Brazilian inpatriates who got assigned in the Komaki factory from Brazil showed a presentation to the attendees on the differences between the working environment in Japan and Brazil and their daily life here. The attendees also visited our Monozukuri Training Center, the place for education and training where necessary knowledge and skills for manufacturing can be acquired. We had active participation from them during the question and answer portion after the tour.

In acknowledging our support to their program, JICA mentioned the following as an expression of their gratitude:
"We have learned a lot about the essence of manufacturing and human resource development in NGK SPARK PLUG CO., LTD."
"Thanks to NGK SPARK PLUG CO., LTD. , we were able to have such a meaningful seminar in of JICA’s training program."
