【Together】New Thoughts on the Management of Multinational Corporate System in the New Business Norm
2019 Sep 16
In the current world, the trend of globalization is further strengthened, every field is impacted by big data, and the competition among enterprises is increasingly fierce. Changing the traditional production mode and strengthening the coordination and cooperation between the upstream industries and the downstream industries has become the top priorities in the development of enterprises. To sustain a foothold in the fiercely competitive market, it is of utmost importance to ensure quality, health, safety and environment (QHSE) management. And those leading large-scale multinational companies in the world have taken the lead in identifying new ideas for QHSE management. Let's hear about their excellent experience together.
Founded in 1933, the company is a world-renowned manufacturer of automatic control and electronic equipment. It is equipped with the world's leading core sensing and control technology. Products cover a wide scope, such as industrial automation control system, electronic components, automotive electronics, social systems, health medical equipment and so on, available in hundreds of thousands of varieties.
"The transformation from a global production plant to an independent, self-disciplined and self-developing enterprise has become the major development orientation of our group. Meanwhile, we are also undergoing transformation in terms of quality, health, safety and environmental management model. China's laws and regulations are becoming ever stricter, and the speed of their promulgation is ever faster, which imposes higher requirements on corporate managers. In order to better accomplish fine management of QHSE, Omron will stick to a professional third-party institution. "We are unable to achieve everything on our own; thus we turn to more professional third-party institutions to help us develop medium-term and long-term plans, and give us more professional guidance of laws and regulations." --- Wang Jin, Occupation Health & Safety Manager, Omron (China) Co., Ltd.
In 2012, Schneider (Chongqing) Electrical Co., Ltd. set its root in Wanzhou, Chongqing, and became one of the 242 manufacturing bases of Schneider Electric's global supply chain system. The company mainly produces and sells electrical products, intelligent lighting low-voltage electrical appliances, etc. It is the manufacturing center of Schneider's wiring terminal products in China.
"Although Schneider Group has grown into an industry giant, the company still encounters some problems and other when selling products at home or abroad, such as product standards. The products from many large-scale domestic and overseas enterprises are required to meet qualification criteria so as to make it to market. When faced with such problems, Schneider always adopts a positive responding strategy immediately. In 2017, our company passed the ISO 50001 energy management system for the first time, and became the first energy management system certified factory in Wanzhou, Chongqing. In the process of certification, we hearkened to the advice of Bureau Veritas Energy Auditor, and rectified high temperature of the injection molding workshop and heat emission of the injection molding machine. This not only greatly improved staff satisfaction, but also reduced energy consumption cost as well." --- Tang Xiaoyun, Engineer, Schneider (Chongqing) Electrical Co., Ltd.
AVK Group is the only PE ball valve subsidiary company in China. The company is committed to the production of high-level high-density polyethylene valves by injection moulding. It has a factory built in accordance with ISO standards and equipped with a full set of modern production equipment and facilities.
"At present, a PE valve manufactured by the company is not widely used in China. Except for some large-scale and mainstream gas companies in China, other enterprises haven't been on the same page yet, but these products are rendered as mature in Europe and the United States, and a comprehensive standardization system has been put forward tracing back to 1980. In order to sink deep into the market, we should, first of all, inject sufficient confidence into customers, assuring them that our products are trustworthy. While certification from an authoritative third-party organization is a very impressive fact. In 2017, AVK Plastics Technology successfully obtained ISO/TS 29001 system certification, becoming one of few non-petrochemical enterprises to obtain such a certificate." --- Yang Jian, Manager, Product & QHSE, AVK Syntec (Anhui) Co., Ltd.
Quality, health, safety and environment are essential corporate pillars. In order to improve QHSE management in the new era, it is necessary for enterprises to keep at the forefront of management, innovate constantly, think out of the box, and constantly pursue improvement and enhancement. Omron China, Schneider (Chongqing) Electrical and AVK Plastics Technology are role models for enterprises to follow, sustainably leading their industries as always.
