Product Liability and Quality Assurance

As a wholesale company with a manufacturing function, we strive to provide security and safety to customers through the maintenance of the quality of products and merchandise we handle, as well as the development and improvement of products.
This section presents our quality management system and the education conducted for our employees on the knowledge of products and merchandise regarding safety.

Quality Control of products and merchandise
Acquisition of certification of JIS and industry group
Response to complaints

In the event that a complaint is raised, we first has the sales representative meet with the customer and prepare a report. When there is a need to investigate the cause, if the case pertains to a product manufactured in-house, the Quality Control Section in our factory takes the necessary steps, while if the case pertains to procured merchandise, we take steps jointly with the supplier. We have a mechanism to share complaints whereby holding a meeting on complaints (irregularly held) and cases that should be shared on a corporate-wide basis are addressed to the entire organization by issuing a sales report or guidance to draw attention in order to share information.

Operating site Opening Plan

Currently, KONDOTEC has 47 operating sites. Among sales activities areas, a precondition for selecting areas for operating site openings is that the area should be far away and have prospects for increased sales. We have expanded areas for operating site openings by way of branching out from relatively large-scale operating sites (branch class).
KONDOTEC makes sure to establish warehouses to store inventory at operating sites. Because we make deliveries, as for the location of operating sites, we select places near expressway ICs, or industrial parks that are unlikely to affect neighboring residents in terms of noise and traffic.
As for personnel, while several employees from branch operating sites are transferred at the time of a new operating site opening, we recruit several local people to help create employment in the community.

Enhancement of remuneration and benefits programs
(Employee stock ownership plan (ESOP) & trust-type ESOP (E-Ship®))

In October 2013, we introduced an ESOP which offers shares to employees who have been promoted or assumed a position.
By issuing shares as an incentive to employees of the Company, we encourage employees to heighten their motivation and morale toward enhancing performance as part of our effort to improve corporate value of the Company in the medium-and-long term.
In 2008, we introduced E-Ship® which is the trust system utilizing employees’ stock ownership associations ,and we are 4th company in Japan. It was reported in the Nihonkeizai Shimbun newspaper as planning to distribute about 100,000 yen per person on a simple average in 2012 at the end of the first period.
