 At the end of last quarter, Ogura held its 2016 Quality Circle World Competition. In order to qualify, quality circles from all worldwide Ogura manufacturing locations must have come up with an improvement to an existing process that reduces cost, time or waste.This year, four teams from outside of Japan (Ogura Corporation (USA), Ogura Clutch Dongguan (China), Ogura Clutch Thailand, Ogura Clutch Changxing (China) qualified for the competition as well as two teams from Japan.
 All teams presented their ideas, implementation steps and final results to a board of manufacturing and senior executives from Ogura.Many Ogura employees from the manufacturing plants in Japan (approximately 350) were also present to view the competition and possibly gain ideas for their own departments.It was a great opportunity for quality control and manufacturing personnel to exchange ideas and share stories.
