Mitsubishi Electric to Build Training Center at Inazawa Works in Japan
Will strengthen human resources development as company globalizes its building-systems business
Mitsubishi Electric Corporation announced today that it will build a new training center in Japan to strengthen human resources development as the company further globalizes the sales, manufacturing, installation and maintenance functions of its building-systems business, including elevators and escalators. The center, which is scheduled to start operating in April 2016, will be located on the premises of the Inazawa Works, the center of Mitsubishi Electricís building-systems development and manufacturing activities.
The center will have several training rooms equipped with advanced IT systems for diverse training purposes. It will be used by personnel from throughout Mitsubishi Electric and its affiliates, including in Japan and abroad, from new hires to mid-career employees. Training will be provided for all operational processes, including marketing, engineering, manufacturing, installation and maintenance. Training for top executives will also be carried out.
Japanese expatriates based outside Japan and local staffers at overseas affiliates will be among those to visit the center for training, helping to equip group-wide employees with superior knowledge and skills that will be leveraged to expand and strengthen Mitsubishi Electricís position as the worldís top brand for elevators and escalators.
The new center will reinforce Mitsubishi Electricís existing global training network. The company currently operates 21 training facilities, which it shares with affiliates on a cooperative basis. Principal facilities include training centers at Taiwan Mitsubishi Elevator Co., Ltd. (opened November 2014), Mitsubishi Elevator (Thailand) Co., Ltd. (May 2015) and MELCO-MEC Egypt for Elevators& Escalators (May 2015).
Mitsubishi Electric is upgrading its building-systems business to maximize the safety, peace of mind and comfort of its products and services worldwide. The company is operating 14 manufacturing bases and has supplied customers in 93 countries. To achieve its fiscal 2020 consolidated sales target of 720 billion yen, 50% of which is to be generated outside Japan, the company aims to capture demand for new installations overseas and accelerate elevator and escalator renewal business in Japan.
