Kautex Japan celebrates 20 years

On December 22, 2021, Kautex Japan (KJP) celebrated its 20th anniversary with all employees.

At the beginning of the ceremony, the team appreciated a video message from the SLT team, and was truly honored by their words. Next, the team looked back on the 20-year history of Kautex Japan.

The team has mastered many experiences, events and challenges in the last 20 years, such as the great earthquake that occurred in eastern Japan in 2011 or the heavy rain disaster that occurred around the Hiroshima plant area. However, team KJP overcame a lot of these difficulties through great teamwork and is pleased to be able to celebrate its 20th anniversary. Also, KJP realized much support from overseas colleagues by looking back on its history and would like to express its highest gratitude.

After the anniversary celebration, the team celebrated its jubilees who completed 5, 10, 15 and 20 years of service. KJP employees enjoyed traditional Japanese music and pounded steamed rice to make a rice cake called “Mochitsuki” which is a Japanese custom in the afternoon, while wearing a “Happi” which they often wear during Japanese festivals.

Team KJP will continue to take on challenges by being one team for further growth. Congratulations to 20 years of successful teamwork!
