Changing the status quo for society and for the world by Creating Added Value

Yu Nakata

Since its establishment in 1974, KEYENCE has strived to create added value.

Our products are used in a wide variety of applications at manufacturing sites around the world, such as automation applications for increased productivity, machine and equipment safety applications, and data acquisition applications for quality improvement. The industries supported at these sites are just as varied including, but not limited to, semiconductors, precision electronics, food, medicine, automobiles, and aviation.

We are proud to offer high value-added products capable of supporting manufacturing efforts around the world.

At KEYENCE, we define our role and social contribution through our goal of changing the status quo by offering products that boast added value never before available.

To help customers recognize the new value created by KEYENCE products, an added value sales team is also an indispensable factor.

At KEYENCE, sales is more than simply introducing products.

The problems customers face are not always limited to recognized problems. Solving any problem requires a thorough understanding of the situation in addition to direct dialog with customers and on-site confirmation, and sometimes it becomes necessary to solve problems customers have yet to even notice.

At KEYENCE this is exactly what our sales team excels at and forms the very foundation of how we create added value.

Going forward, we will continue striving to change the status quo for society and for the world through the added value of our products and sales team.

Message from our COO

KEYENCE is a great place to work for those who place a priority on personal growth.

Goh Shibasaki
Chief Operating Officer
KEYENCE class of '01

KEYENCE is an ideal company for passionate people who prioritize personal and career development. You can expect a fast-paced environment here at KEYENCE – we expect our employees to learn and become contributors quickly. This quick development of our employees is one of our competitive advantages, and is a win-win for both KEYENCE and our employees. KEYENCE is a company that is well known for innovation, not only for our products, but for our business model as well. At KEYENCE, one of our guiding principles is to focus on “added value”. This concept is one that is simple to understand, but difficult to implement in practice. This is why we need hard-working, talented employees to help fuel our growth in the future.

A new job and/or career is always a big transition – your first job out of college, or a new industry and product to learn. Here at KEYENCE, we have a strict promotion from within policy in which all employees start at an entry level position, which leads to our management team having a deep understanding of what it is like to be a new hire. This understanding leads to better training, as well as coaching and development, and the end result is a talented workforce, and better business results. Although it is already over 20 years ago, I still remember what it was like to arrive for day 1 at KEYENCE.

Take a look at our products, our business model, our culture and apply. Give us a chance, you won't regret it!
