Hiring: Engineer / CNC Machine specialist / Plant manager


Our product and customer portfolios have expanded significantly. In order to keep up with the increased demand, our production team must expand as well.

The Bubble90 is an incredibly complex product to produce from a manufacturing standpoint, and it’s not the only one. DG TAKANO still makes gas cocks for the needs of the industry, and those, too, require extreme precision. Needless to say, our future projects, will not be simple products either. For these reasons, we are looking for a quick learner with machining background to join our production team.

Last but not least, we need your specialised insight for new product development. DG TAKANO’s core strength is the ability to create unique niche products, by applying design thinking to environmental and societal issues. That means we explore issues from a variety of perspectives and without predetermined notions. Your engineering/machining perspective will be vital in this process.

If you’re motivated to improve and you like challenges, then you are just the person we need!

You want to work at DG TAKANO because:

You will have the opportunity to work with and learn from some of the foremost CNC machining experts in all of Japan.

Thanks to Mr. Yoshiyuki Takano, our CEO’s father, DG TAKANO is one of a handful of Japanese companies with the technological aptitude to produce gas cocks. Mr. Yoshiyuki’s advice is often sought by other plant owners and operators in the Higashiosaka industrial area. Together with his son, Masaaki Takano, they developed and produced the first model of the Bubble90 from scratch in only a year, and without any prior expertise in water-saving technology. Mr. Yoshiyuki Takano is also famous for his unique modifications of CNC machines, pushing the boundaries of what kind of products such machines are able to produce. In fact, it is what he and his son did to first make the Bubble90.

Of course, you will not just be working with machines, you will be a member of our guild. Your thoughts, suggestions, and especially your ideas, will be welcomed and appreciated. Your will take part in decisions concerning company rules and give advice on new product development. You will also have the opportunity to start and lead your own projects.
