Furthering its commitment to India, Toshiba JSW Power Systems Private Limited (TJPS), a Joint venture between Toshiba Corporation in Japan and JSW Group in India, today reinforced its CSR activities with the launch of Welding Training School.
Established at the TJPS factory in Chennai, the Welding Training School will impart gratis (free of charge) training to 30 students recommended from neighbouring Industrial Training Institute (ITI) from May to June 2015 in 3 separate training programs. The 12 days program will include fundamental sessions such as the theory of welding and learn high-level welding skill, followed by a Skill Evaluation. TJPS also aims to foster the importance of safety, time management, compliance of manuals, and environmental awareness in manufacturing processes through this training.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. Yoshiaki Inayama, Managing Director of TJPS said, “Toshiba Group›s Corporate Philosophy emphasizes respect for people, creation of new value, and contribution to society. The Group slogan “Committed to People, Committed to the Future,” expresses the essence of their corporate philosophy. The company recognized that it is their corporate social responsibility (CSR) to put the philosophy and slogan into practice in our day-to-day business activities. They hope that with the help of their Welding Skill training, the students will upgrade to high-level skilled workers to become an integral part of the manufacturing industry in Tamil Nadu and contribute to “Make in India”. The company will continue to undertake such meaningful CSR activities in the future.”
