    Roland DG Corporation

    Electric Appliances

    Company Overview / Who We Are

    We operate digital printing and 3D manufacturing businesses in over 200 countries worldwide. In recent years, we have also entered the medical field with dental milling machines, providing unique value in a wide range of manufacturing sectors. ■Business Description: Development, manufacturing, and sales of computer peripherals (cutting plotters, large color print cutters, personal fabrication machines, modeling machines, engraving machines, dedicated printing machines, metal printers). Color: We provide large industrial color printers primarily to the outdoor advertising industry for creating large outdoor signs such as billboards and hanging banners. 3D: As a 3D input/output device, we offer a diverse lineup that caters to various needs from 3D scanning to milling. Cutting: This field includes cutting plotters that cut vinyl sheets into shapes of letters and illustrations. These are used for creating various signs, decorating show windows, and making guide displays in factories. ■Company Strengths: Core Technology from Inception: XYZ-axis control technology. Although our products may seem completely different, such as pen plotters, cutting machines, 3D input/output devices, and large inkjet printers, we develop products while maintaining our core technology of XYZ-axis control. Development System: We have an advanced development and design environment that enables us to bring flexible ideas to life. When developing a product, we adopt a "producer system" where a single person is in charge, gathering the necessary personnel as needed. This approach, with a market-in mindset, allows us to plan and develop new products, repeatedly scrap and build according to the plan, ensuring that our products accurately meet the rapidly changing market needs. Sales System: We emphasize marketing from a global market perspective. In "domestic sales," we build a total support system that includes proposing business innovations through the introduction of products tailored to the customer's environment, as well as quality assurance, service, and supply items. On the other hand, in "overseas sales," which account for 90% of our revenue, we build regional networks, disseminate diverse proposal cases from within Japan to joint ventures and agents worldwide, and share the absorbed information at the regional level to enhance our competitiveness in the international market.

    Our Vision / Mission

    Inspire the Enjoyment of Creativity Be the BEST rather than the BIGGEST The Roland Family - Cooperative Enthusiasm Our ultimate goal is to support users in processing creations using computers from their perspective. With the rapid advancement of digitalization, it is crucial to quickly and proactively respond to the increasingly diverse and sophisticated needs of our customers with new technologies. We believe that the best approach is not only to pursue quantitative expansion but also to gain customer empathy and grow together by providing high-quality products and sufficient services. Under this philosophy, we have aimed for an integrated operational system where the sales department, business divisions with development functions, and affiliated companies work together, with the common theme of collecting user information and developing new products. We continuously hold forums for information exchange, share awareness of issues, and always have development projects in operation that tackle product development based on new research themes. On the other hand, it is necessary to commercialize high-value development results with the best production system. We have focused on enhancing our systems, viewing the improvement of quality and production efficiency as our primary mission as a manufacturer. Our production system, the "Digital Yatai Production Method," fully utilizes IT equipment to achieve shortened lead times and ensured quality reliability. We take the joy of creation through these series of efforts in manufacturing and plan to continue promoting proactive operations as a united group.
