TAIKO KIKAI INDUSTRIES was founded in 1956 as the first business invited to the town of Tabuse, and everyone anticipated its contributions to the community through job creation. Thus, the company’s start was planned for fulfilling corporate social responsibility (CSR) in the area from the beginning. Over the subsequent 60 years, TAIKO has lived up to those responsibilities.
In FY2015, the 60th year since its foundation, the company initiated its Business Continuity Plan (BCP) to define optimal damage-control measures for responding to large-scale disasters. With this plan, TAIKO will continue to carry out its social responsibilities as a company growing hand-in-hand with the global community.
For TAIKO, preserving the earth’s environment is a critical mission. We produce water-treatment blowers, oxidizing blowers for flue gas desulfurization, single-screw pumps for sewage and sludge transfer, as well as sewage-treatment devices and bilge separators that help prevent pollution of the oceans. In addition to products used in environmental conservation, we have actively promoted, since 2013, use of renewable resources by selling electricity to grids through solar-power generation and developing and marketing small-scale hydroelectric power-generation equipment.
As part of TAIKO’s support activities for succeeding generations, we hold such events as a work-study program for junior high students and factory tours for high school students. Moreover, on July 31, 2015, we hosted 280 children from 19 countries who were participating in the 23rd World Scout Jamboree held in Yamaguchi prefecture.
Starting in 2013, we have hosted the “TAIKO Baseball Clinic” every year for youth baseball teams from the town of Tabuse and our employee’s children, inviting professional players from the Hiroshima Toyo Carp (NPB) to join.
Three social-contribution vending machines operated by the Nippon Foundation are installed as part of our fundraising activities. Each time one drink is purchased from these vending machines, a donation of 10 yen is made. In 2012, we initiated “Retina Fund,” and in 2014, started a project involving the donation of used postage stamps. At the request of Tabuse, TAIKO is also cooperating with blood donation drives conducted at our factory. This activity has been undertaken for more than 40 years and will continue into the foreseeable future.
In September 2019, Typhoon Faxai struck Kanto distrect and caused extensive damage mainly in Chiba Prefecture.
We provided 60 units of "JDK-40" and "JDK-60" electromagnetic drive diaphragm blowers to Chiba Prefectural Environmental Preservation Center which have exercise over to septic tank maintenance and cleaning companies.
TAIKO Kikai Industry hopes to support many victims and restore their living environment quickly.
