    • March 07, 2017 Swiss companies discover kaizen to raise efficiency

      Tokyo (SCCIJ) - The Japanese management principle of "kaizen" is in high demand in Switzerland. More and more companies are using this management approach to raise efficiency and better satisfy their customers. For example, the underwear producer Zimmerli is on the kaizen trip, as is the adhesive tape maker SIGA, the auto supplier company Autoneum, the kitchen fittings maker KWC and a cantonal hospital. Kaizen means literally “change for the better” and refers to a Japanese philosophy that focuses on the enhancement of business operations such as production processes. The SCCIJ explains how five Swiss companies improved their business situation by resorting to kaizen.[more]

    • February 27, 2017 Landis+Gyr "unaffected" by Toshiba's challenges

      Tokyo (SCCIJ) - Landis+Gyr is unaffected by the current challenges of its Japanese parent company Toshiba, the global market leader for energy metering solutions from Zug, Switzerland, said. Sales would be growing this year, with cash flow being positive, and R+D investments high. Landis+Gyr released an unaudited consolidated financial statement to prove its financial health. The Swiss company takes this unusual step to calm down possible customer concerns related to the weak balance sheet of its Japanese parent. Toshiba bought 60 percent of Landis+Gyr in 2011. The remaining 40 percent went to the Innovation Network Corporation of Japan.[more]
