message from President

Growth of enterprise by It's staff!!

There is "Growth of company, by its staff" as one of our motto.Company’s growth is depends on the staff talent and safeness is also by the staff. When we survey the word “Gondola”, airship, aerostat, ropeway and etc.. The most famous one as gondola is a black painted flat bottomed boat which is used at Venice in Italy.

Further, the most familiar one is the gondola at amusement park and skiing area. In the field what we design, manufacturing, sales, installation and maintenance is the facilities for cleaning and maintenance of building façade.

Keep pacing with the trend in building field, high rise building became popular and necessitate of gondola facilities focused the spotlight of attention. Nowadays, gondola is the popular in the construction field though, when I was freshman, many confused questions and inquiries gondola at skiing area and etc. were given to us.

Gondola facilities, by the diversifications of building shapes, no same gondolas are exist. Even standardization of gondola is carried out, it is only a small portion. From designing to manufacturing, the almost gondolas are regarded to be a just handmade as these are manufactured to fit to individual building.

The operating the gondola and work safely is the human power. The operation itself, it is not difficult. Anybody can operate the gondola after getting special education on gondola. Accordingly, depending on the operator, safeness may vary dramatically. Diversification of building shape, gondola facilities have been varied.Variety of conditions are required and gondolas with complicated sequence motions have been increased.

To master the contents on how to operate and maintain, manuals are provided. Nowadays, not only special education but thorough comprehension by reading of manuals is essential regarding the safeness.

I had been carried out the special education on gondola. During that time, I made it a rule to advise

"Safeness is brought by individual operator. Don’t take things easy as operation is simple. If you think that such a small thing is nothing, it may cause the big accident even such simple operation of gondola. The matter which you have to fulfill must keep. The matter which is not permitted to carry out shall be absolutely prohibited. If you keep such matters, work may be carried out safely and do read through the manual." The safeness of gondola is materialized by many peoples who belong to design, manufacturing, installation, maintenance and operation.

Depending on the peoples, the gondola become right or wrong. The facts shall be kept in your mind on such company growth and safeness are by the staff and so, we have to pay attention carefully on safeness from now on.
