DISCO Values, DISCO’s corporate philosophy established in 1997, clarifies the social mission (Mission), which is the role that DISCO intends to play in the society, and the corporate target (Target) necessary for DISCO to firmly forge ahead to achieve this Mission.
Bringing faraway science to comfortable living through advanced ‘Kiru’, ‘Kezuru’, ‘Migaku’ technologies
Our technology and services are to become international standards, bringing delight worldwide
By achieving excellence in all of our corporate activities, our existence will be welcomed by our stakeholders and society
“Advanced Kiru, Kezuru and Migaku technologies” is DISCO’s business domain. In other words, DISCO will never deviate from the three technology fields of Kiru (cutting), Kezuru (grinding), and Migaku (polishing) in our business activities. The company’s social mission is to connect the ever-advancing science to bountiful and comfortable lifestyles via these core technologies. In addition, DISCO does not think of growth in terms of the growth of sales, scale, or market share. For DISCO, growth is measured by how close we come to achieving our Mission and by the increase in our exchange of value with and satisfaction of our stakeholders, such as the employees, customers, and shareholders. Therefore, sustainability is considered to be the company’s reason for existence, and is something that we have been pursuing since the establishment of DISCO Values in 1997.
In 2002, in order to make it easier for all DISCO members, including both officers and employees, to behave and make decisions in line with our Mission and Target stated above, on top of carrying out daily corporate activities and business operations, over 200 detailed statements were added to DISCO Values as “Management Guidelines”. To this day, in order to enable all our employees to act and make decisions according to DISCO Values in their daily activities, DISCO has been consistently implementing activities to further this initiative, such as company-wide workshops and workplace-based study sessions.
DISCO Vision 2020 was established as a mid-to-long term milestone on the path to achieving our Mission stated in DISCO Values. DISCO Vision 2020 defines the goals that DISCO aims to achieve by the end of the 2020 fiscal year in terms of the main elements that the corporation is comprised of, such as business, organization, corporate culture, and in terms of the relationship between DISCO and our stakeholders, including employees, customers, shareholders, suppliers, and local communities.
One of our goals is to be a company that possesses an exceptional level of vitality that allows it to survive in any environment, and to represent Kai (worthy or useful) for many stakeholders. In other words, DISCO aims to be a corporation that has a clear reason for its relationships with each and every one of its stakeholders. An overview of the initiatives and goals for each stakeholder is as shown below.
A portion of the statements is as follows.
