As a domestic company with global reach, we rely heavily on our suppliers to help us maintain our high level of quality and high business standards. That’s why we see quality and our corporate philosophy of Kyosei as an integral part of every relationship we form.
Quality: the standard of what we do measured against a similar product, process or company.
Kyosei: All people, regardless of race, religion or culture, harmoniously living and working together into the future.
One is based on measuring against a competitor; the other on working with a competitor. As much as they may seem at cross purposes, they are at the heart of everything we do and everything we stand for. By actively helping to improve our supplier partners, we’re working together for a common goal: Quality. It’s an idea that, over the years, has helped us to continually improve. By working together with our partners, we continually strive to achieve excellence.
Quality and Kyosei. Canon Virginia cannot exist without either. Since day one, each has shaped who we are and what we do. Which is why we demand no less of the people—and companies—we do business with.
