At Asada Mesh, we are proud of our standing in the world, and strive to maintain it through keeping
our social responsibility as a company. That is why we run a number of CSR programs.
Daily life is affected by many different things, from the small actions within a company community,
the neighborhood, the country, and even the community of the world.
Through our CSR programs, we contribute to one and all.
Work Life Balance
“A workplace environment that supports physical and mental health”, “A workplace that is safe and worry-free”: these are the goals of our programs.
Choose any day of your birthday month as an extra day off, unrelated to the allotment of paid holidays.
Taking a paid day off is easy to arrange. In the case that it isn’t, we will work with you to arrange it.

A “Satsumasendai City Company Supporting Participation and Advancement of Women in the Workplace” is a company that cares for the environment, actively appoints and promotes women, and maintains a healthy workplace for all.
As a proud global company, we have a rehiring policy, disability employment, technical training internships, and other programs.

mesh is produced during the tour.

collaborative projects, and offered support at various events.
We greatly care for our employees, and we consider our company a society we must
contribute to. This is the first step of CSR.
For our team to properly rest up on their breaks, we have a stylish
cafeteria prepared for their comfort. Furniture was chosen knowing that many people take naps.
