For Nishimura Seisakusho, the achievement of ISO 14001 delivered far more than environmental benefits: the certification process itself triggered a transformation that led to an organization with enhanced communications and a profitable 'black-ink balance'.
Tokyo-based Nishimura Seisakusho Co., Ltd., is a highly respected manufacturer of precision press parts that has transformed itself into a dynamic company with the introduction of an ISO14001. A Small-to-Medium Enterprise (SME), employing 34 people, the company obtained certification for its Environmental Management System from LRQA in 2008 in response to the demands of its customers. As a result, in addition to environmental-related improvements, the company has also achieved other benefits, including improvements in communications within the organization, enhancement of its compliance system, and a return to profitability by substantial cost reduction.
