What do the corporate brand name "ACCRETECH" and symbol mean?

accretech_mark

ACCRETECH was created from the words accrete, which means to grow together, and technology. This personifies our corporate ethos to grow together with our customers by integrating superior global technologies, knowledge and information, with the objective of developing the world's premier products. The symbol personifies our mission statement. The spinning golden orb represents the dynamic mix of resources - people, materials, funds and information - concentrated from all over the world. The integration of these elements will enable the consistent development of cutting-edge products, depicted by the jet streams shooting out of the orb.

What are ACCRETECH-TOKYO SEIMITSU's Group Leader System and In-House Company System?

In 1988, we arranged our technological development teams according to product type and appointed a technical expert at the head of each group. These group leaders are responsible not only for product development but also business performance. They have full authority related to creating business plans, investment and recruitment.

In April 2002, in line with the adoption of an Executive Officer System, all group leaders were appointed as executive officers. This acted to further strengthen the new system, notably speed of decision making and flexible, swift response to market conditions.

We also introduced an In-House Company System in April 2002, in which the operations of the three in-house entities, the Semiconductor Company, the Metrology Company and the Administration Company, are conducted independently, which eliminated the need for a head office.

The Semiconductor Company and the Metrology Company have significant decision making authority, which facilitates agile, quick customer response. The Administration Company ensures that all direct departments are running smoothly.
