Origin of Company Name
On February 1st, 1991, the 25th anniversary of our company's foundation, as part of our CI (corporate identity) we changed our name from Meisho Kouki Co., Ltd. to Luceo. In Latin, Luceo means light, bright, and evident.
We're often asked "Why Latin?" but the number one reason is that "it hasn't become obsolete even after 100 years."
Other reasons include that it is an intellectual, scientific, and international
This is because Latin has been used since before the 3rd – 4th century BC, and is currently used as the official language in the Roman Catholic Church, as well as for academic terms in medicine, biology, and for constellations.
Its importance as a tool for expressing the common ideas among Westerners has never changed, because Latin has endured as both a classic and, at the same time, current language.
An introduction to our corporate philosophy and management philosophy
Everyone working at Luceo has honed their expertise, and continually works to improve their communication skills and their management abilities while keeping an easy-going, cheerful attitude. This is in order to create a comfortable workplace for themselves where they can fully demonstrated their own abilities. As a result, we are able to produce products and service that satisfies our customers, and we are confident that through our work we are able to make a contribution to society.
As a basic mindset when working with customers, enthusiasm, originality, and creativity are more important than anything.
Work done lacking even one of these three will not produce satisfactory results.
Striving to improve your own abilities (expertise/management/service) on a daily basis will make our service always be exceptional to our customers.
In order to ensure the work goes smoothly, it is necessary to improve your communication skills.
Communication runs smoothly when both parties respect each other, when you make an effort that is appreciated by the other party, and when you both have a feeling of mutual understanding.
Luceo Co., Ltd. aims to improve customer satisfaction, and to that aim we have hammered out our corporate philosophy that "from a comfortable workplace, we actively create products that meet the needs of our customers and contribute to society." As our quality policy,
