Society

The Tadano Group strives to contribute to the development of local and international societies through social contributions which only Tadano is capable of, led by the Group's corporate philosophy of "Creation, Contribution, and Cooperation".

Cultural Restoration and Academic Support

As a manufacturer of lifting equipment, Tadano has been uniquely positioned to make contributions to the community by assisting with cultural restoration projects. In response to a message from Easter Island seeking technical assistance to return Moai to the standing position, Tadano took on the Moai Restoration Project, which lasted from 1988 to 1996. Tadano also provided technical cooperation in the disassembly of the Takamatsuzuka Tomb's stone chamber in Nara by developing a disassembly jig in 2007. In February 2018, Tadano won the Special Prize of the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry in the Monozukuri Nippon Grand Award, and the company donated equipment for the restoration of ruins of Angkor in Cambodia in 2008.
As part of our 100th anniversary project, we will provide support for Kyoto University's Kwasan observatory and donate a third crane to Easter Island, Chile. Kwasan observatory is recognized worldwide for the observation of the sun and is also known as a "mecca" for amateur astronomers. With the completion of the university's new Okayama observatory in 2018, however, it was facing the threat of closure. Tadano established General Incorporated Kwasan Cultural Foundation for the Promotion of Cosmology to donate 10 million yen per year to the foundation over the next decade. Through this support, Tadano will make social contributions to the field of astronomy.

Sponsorship and Exhibition in an Interactive Science Event

Tadano supports an interactive science event held by local universities and other organizations to inspire children's interest in science. Children had the opportunity to use experimental tools to learn about the principle of the lever, Pascal's law, and the principle of the pulley. They also had great fun test-riding Tadano's aerial work platforms and operating a"skeleton crane" that runs on air pressure.

Summer Plant Tours for Families

Tadano holds plant tours each year to enhance children's interest and understanding in monozukuri (high-quality manufacturing) and technology and to give them a little help with their summer projects by providing them with a rare opportunity to visit plants and testride our cranes.
In fiscal year 2018, the tour was held at our Shido Plant in July and was joined by a total of 42 families from both inside and outside the company.

Heartful Pocket (donor organization)

This support organization, which encourages employees' participation, was launched in 2007 as a grassroots initiative for raising donations for organizations and individuals dedicated to a variety of social causes. Employees who become members of the organization make a donation of 100 yen from their monthly salary and 500 yen from their bonus. The company devotes the amount equivalent to the sum of the contributions by employees (matching gift), and make donations twice a year. As of March 2019, we have made donations to a total of 52 organizations.

Blood Donation and Nursing Training

As a supporter of the Japanese Red Cross Society, Tadano organizes blood drives twice a year at our offices and plants in Kagawa, and more than 400 Group employees participate each year. A total of 479 employees donated blood in fiscal year 2018, which corresponds to approximately 1.47 % of the total blood donation in Kagawa. We also accept some 100 nursing students from local universities and vocational schools each year for an on-site practical training.
