Yanmar Receives the “New Office Promotion Award”
August 28, 2015
Yanmar Co., Ltd.
Yanmar's new head office, opened in Osaka in November 2014, received the "New Office Promotion Award" from Japan-based Nikkei Inc. and the New Office Promotion Association. Yanmar was selected, together with 12 other companies, from a total of 134 nominees.
This award is presented to national enterprises that adopt an innovative approach to office layout and design, substantially improving workplace functionality and enhancing employee comfort. Social contributions, such as minimization of environmental impact and improvements to the local community are also core criteria in the selection process.
The new headquarters is built on the very site the company was originally established on, in 1912. Symbolically called the "YANMAR FLYING-Y BUILDING", the structure incorporates Yanmar's latest technologies in the various domains in which we operate, positioning it as a truly environmentally friendly facility. The building makes full use of Yanmar's energy-saving power products, while also employing a wide array of eco-friendly technologies, that realize a 50% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions compared to conventional buildings.
The versatile floor layout facilitates multifaceted collaboration, while the minimal number of interior walls enhances communication, heralding a new era in office functionality and dynamics. The novel and inspiring design is suitable for our new Headquarters, a hub of communication from where we will continue to transmit Yanmar's message to the world.
