Established in 1991 to manufacture electronic parts and
devices, Hitachi Ferrite (Thailand) Limited. (HFT) has grown
to become one of the world’s leading manufacturers of rotary
transformers, isolators, circulators, ferrite powder and
soft ferrite cores. Its Board-of-Investment-promoted 44,260-square-metre
factory is one of the most modern in the country, and employs
the very latest Japanese technology from Hitachi Metals,
Ltd. HFT has invested heavily in both time and money to
develop every one of its 896 employees, enabling the manufacture
of superior quality products.
Manufactured in a clean working environment at the
company’s facility in Rojana Industrial Park, HFT’s
products are exported to such countries as Japan,
Malaysia, Singapore, China, Indonesia, France and
as well as other overseas markets.
HFT’s showcase product, however, is the rotary transformer.
Rotary transformers are
an essential component in video cassette recorders
(VCRs). Installed at the cylinder head of the VCR,
they transfer magnetic
to electrical signals and vice versa.
HFT is also capable of producing its own
ferrite powder and soft ferrite core, both vital components
for rotary transformers.
HFT is also well-known for its communication devices,
such as isolators and circulators, which are core
components in modern-day mobile phones.
Training to succeed
Highly skilled employees are always the driving force
behind the success of every business. For a company
to achieve growth,
it must recognise the importance of its human resources
and find ways to motivate the workers in order for
them to be most productive. In realising this, HFT
in-house training and development programmes for employees
at all levels. Experts flown in from abroad conduct
technical workshops to upgrade staff skills, while
offshore training is also offered. In order to promote
good business relationships with clients, and to provide
a better understanding of the company’s products,
HFT specialists also provide customers with practical
A green tomorrow
“Mutual Trust” has always been at the core of the
HFT operation. Applying equally to the customer
and company; the community and company; and even
to two or more of the employees, the policy reflects
the understanding and respect that HFT has for its
operations, the people involved and the surrounding
environment. This was why Hitachi Ferrite (Thailand)
Ltd. decided to implement the ISO 14001 environmental
system into its operations. Every employee, from
management down, was subjected to rigorous training
to promote the importance of environmental preservation.
From garbage disposal to encouraging community awareness,
every aspect had to be considered in order for the
company to achieve its ultimate goal.
After months of intense training and hard work by
staff at all levels, HFT successfully obtained certification
on 30 September 2003. This achievement has cemented
the company’s goal of becoming an environmentally
exemplary enterprise. And to consumers,
the certification is a guarantee that HFT is a company
with outstanding values.
