Strengths of JEJ

JEJ is able to handle everything from planning and development to the sale of products.

JEJ is not just a factory that manufactures goods; we handle everything from product planning and development to manufacturing and distribution in response to market trends and consumer needs. Because we can handle everything, we can produce a consistent manufacturing flow.

POINT 1Wide range of product groups– We make choosing fun with our wide range of product groups –

JEJ produces various products including appealing items to value-added goods, from basic to high spec, as well as high-quality products such as industrial parts. Categories range from storage goods and kitchen items to leisure, DIY, stationery, etc., with the number of goods exceeding 1,000 items. By offering abundant specifications and color variations to suit the needs and usage scenes of consumers, we make it “fun to choose” for our customers.

POINT 2Manufacturing capacity– We improve customer satisfaction through the full use of state-of- the-art facilities and technologies –

JEJ also emphasizes facility and technology investments by being the first in the industry to introduce state-of- the-art facilities and by incorporating “remote control,” which is the latest technology. For example, we have accumulated unique achievements using technology such as labor-saving/automation through IOT, the introduction of multiple injection molding machines according to the product sizes and small-lot capabilities. Through these efforts, work efficiency has improved in-house, allowing us to deliver stable quality to our customers quickly and at a lower price.

POINT 3Planning and development capabilities– Total production of original goods –

In order to satisfy customer needs, JEJ has also actively worked on the planning and development of our original goods. Beginning with planning and design tailored to the concept, we produce everything up to the point of shaping items in 2D and 3D by making the most of 3D CAD, 3D printers and “Moldflow” flow analysis software. We have earned a good reputation for our short development periods, and we will realize the requests of our customers with speedy suggestions.

POINT 4Bases throughout the country– Thorough production system with five bases nationwide –

JEJ has five factories nationwide in addition to the Sanjo headquarters. With this system, our production capacity has been dramatically expanded, and the reduction of transportation cost, the avoidance of risk in the event of a disaster, and the shortening of the delivery period have been realized. In addition to the deployment of our production management system, sales staff are also assigned at each base. We are strengthening collaboration by densely providing facilities for holding video conferences and sharing technology, quality and consciousness, and improving the response speed and information sharing speed, in order to consolidate our rock-solid production system.

POINT 5Made in Japan– We promise the safe quality of “made in Japan” –

While the volume of foreign-manufactured goods is increasing, JEJ’s products are strictly “Made in Japan.” All products are produced in our factories in Japan. In addition, we conduct high-level testing and inspections before shipping in order to ship only the excellent goods that have passed inspections. Such efforts for quality have also received high praise at overseas exhibitions such as those at Ambiente in Germany and the housewares show in Chicago. Furthermore, our designs have also attracted attention in recent years.

POINT 6Human resources– Flexible thinking toward changes captures needs –

The average age of a JEJ employee is about 34 years old (as of 2016), and this is younger than anywhere else in the manufacturing industry. It is also characteristic that we have many female workers. JEJ constantly checks the demands of the market and the trends of consumers by taking advantage of such power of the younger generation, the sensibilities unique to women, and the power to change without being satisfied with the status quo. Only goods planned with the eyes of consumers can capture the needs of consumers (more than 80% of JEJ product purchasers are women).
