Dyeing In-Charge  Mr. Yuji Kato, Color creator for the Second Department

What is your daily work?

“I receive human hair samples from our customer and create a color very similar to the color of the sample. Then, I dye 100% nylon yarn with the color agent. This is my main work. First, I make some base color samples and show them to our customer. Then, I modify the samples by adding or reducing the volume of colors. After, I receive the acceptance of the customer, I start the actual dyeing process. In case we have our own color which is similar to the requested color, we sometimes use it for dyeing.”

What is difficult about your work?

Since colors look differently depending on the circumstance and the person, it is most difficult to share the same image of the color with the customer. Since colors look differently depending on the circumstance and the person, it is most difficult to share the same image of the color with the customer. The only thing I can do is to repeat the trial and error process.

What is pleasant about your work?

I became very sensitive to colors. Now, I can predict which colors will be popular in the coming season faster than the ordinary people. And, I pay more attention to the colors in my daily life. Even if we use the same material and the same volume for the coloring agent, the appeared color in summer is not the same as that in winter. Also, it depends on the moisture. It is interesting to know that. In that sense, our work seems to be similar to that of a bakery.

What is your goal in the future?

Although we have 1,000 ~2,000 of color samples at present, I want to get more color samples. Our customer selects only several colors among them, but it is very important for us to get more samples.

Sales in-charge Mr. Takehiko Ban of the Second Sales Department

What is your daily work?

I pay a visit to manufacturers of beauty care and listen to the conversation of the staff to find what color they are now searching for. As we create the color base, it is most important for us to be able to share the image of the color with the customer. It takes about four months to complete the color chart used at a drugstore and it takes half a year to complete the book type of the color chart.

What is the difficulty in your work?

It is very difficult for us to convey the image of the color to our customers. The color that the customer imaged sometimes differs from the actual color. So, we have to be very careful about it. Even if we could get enough mutual confirmation, it still takes a long time to create a complex color. This is one of the issues we have to work at.

What is pleasant about your work?

I feel very happy and satisfied when I can bring about the realization of the customer's desire. I am interested in the work which proceeds together with the customers. I am filled with joy and happiness in that occasion.

What is your goal in the future?

I want to create something perfect. I want to respond to the requirement of the customers and want to suggest any good advice to them. It is the best way to perform anything through understanding each other.

What is the attractive point of Staffs

We are the only company that is handling the color charts and hair bundles in Japan. And also it is a good point that the customers are satisfied with our careful work.

Production Management In-Charge   Mr. Masaaki Hirakawa, Factory Director

What is your daily work?

I am in-charge of the management of material, sub-contractor, employees, and costs. Besides me, other five employees are in charge of the management of hair bundles, color charts, and so on. I give instructions to each department watching the work of the whole company.

What is the difficulty in your work?

It is difficult to create the color which meets our customer's request. Besides that, we sometimes carry over the work because we get too many orders in a busy season. We are very thankful to have many orders, but it is hard to manage the delivery time in that season. We created two new colors for spring and fall. So around New Year's season and Obon event season, we have to prepare for the deliveries. The two seasons are the busiest time for us.

What is pleasant about your work?

We deliver the product which we created perfectly to our customer. I am so happy to see the customer’s very pleased with our goods.

What is your goal in the future?

I want to make better system for our company. It is most important for me to think how I can increase our company sales and make it bigger.

What are the attractive points of Staffs?

I have to work late and it requires physical work. So, it is not an easy job. I am not a resident from here. I started working at this company through the emotional ties with our president. So, this is some part of motivation for working here. The president has been teaching me various things and he helped me when I made mistakes. So, I want to contribute to the company in my future work.
