Aisin AW inaugurated a Technical Center in March 2011 to boost the development of next-generation technologies.
The Technical Center integrates the previously separate engineering and manufacturing divisions. The objective is to strengthen technology development capabilities by assimilating everything from product planning to pre-production.
By connecting the East and West office wings, which are at different heights, with a ramp, we created a three-dimensional, open layout. The layout is intended to foster seamless collaboration between divisions. Furthermore, a middle floor surrounding the ramp facilitates various casual, unplanned communications among employees as they walk across the ramp.
Along with the continuous development of new products, the Technical Center was created to develop an invigorating environment that promotes the growth of employees. The Technical Center is a place where Aisin AW's DNA is naturally propagated.
