Innovation begins with the impossible

Change the myth of deburring

Since the establishment of XEBEC Technology, we have been bringing technology innovation into the field of deburring and polishing and promoted process transformation and mindset change.

First, we developed the Ceramic Stone. We brought the chemical and material technology into the conventional grinding stone. Thanks to the performance and quality of the products, today the global market share is more than 80%.

Next, we developed XEBEC Brush. We are the world’s first company that has succeeded in making ceramic stone bristles. In order to supply maintain a stable supply of the world’s unique material, we have been pursuing unprecedented manufacturing technologies. Today, we deal with more than 40 countries and the export ratio is about 70%. Our products contribute to mass production lines of global companies in various fields, such as automotive, aerospace, and medical industries.

Currently, we are challenging to minimize lead time which takes to solve deburring problems as close to zero. XEBEC Back Burr Cutter and Path is one of the examples. We offer the completely new service by integrating material engineering, physics and programming technology to our 15 years of experiences for CNC deburring and polishing.

Change the myth of deburring and enhancing the value of the finishing process. Creating the world where people can use their talent in a creative field. This is what XEBEC is striving for.

Therefore, not only developing innovative products and service, but also we continue to offer the best and innovative methods for all the business aspects including manufacturing, marketing, sales method, and delivery beyond the established standards. In other words, every single member of XEBEC continues making innovation.

Hearing customers’ thought and perceive their hidden needs, developing technologies and products, manufacturing the products and delivering them with accuracy, making the products in maximum use, helping back up the team members, etc. Every aspect of our business is supported by the team members.

That is the reason why we focus on recruiting. Get the right people on the bus. We hire only those who suit our company culture and have high potential.

A person who believes in their own capability, has willingness to progress, thinks and works hard regardless of their experiences. A person who is flexible, bold but elaborate, speedy and persistent. If fellow passengers on the bus have the same mind, the journey will be enjoyable even if something unexpected or accident happens on the way, wherever the final destination is.

The role of the company is to provide the challenging opportunities to the members. The company exists for the members to progress through trials and errors. In the process of growth, we provide values to the family members, colleagues, business partners, and customers. That is the meaning of life and the significance of the company.

Every single member represents XEBEC Technology and the assemblage of the members is XEBEC Technology. Both the members and the company must keep working hard and changing for growth. Believing in each member’s capability expands the XEBEC’s capability, moreover affects the society. To achieve a future that turns the impossible into the possible, we will doubt assumptions and keep on challenging.

    Meeting with new people – the most important thing in work

    The motivation for my job is the pride which comes with contribution to the Japanese manufacturing industry by resolving inevitable issues on deburring and polishing. However, the real enjoyment comes with meeting people.That's the best part of it. I take great pleasure when my proposal defies the existing thought and practice, resulting in making a big change in cusomters’ operation.

    Within the company, the team members respect, inspire and compete each other regardless of seniors or juniors.
    'People who you work with' is important as well as 'what kind of work you do'.
    XEBEC is the place that I can feel growth not only as the company itself but also as an individual.

    I thought it is a great opportunith for me to promote proposalbased sales activity.

    Development of technology enriches the life of people

    The life of people has been facing with a big change recently due to the rapid development and penetration of technology.
    One of the important keywords from this change is 'automation'. I decided to work at XEBEC as I believed that there would be a much greater trend of the automation in the future and I wanted to contribute myself to society by accelerating this.

    There are many various issues today, but I would like to progress technical development which is brand-new and solve each of them.
    I work with the spirit to enrich the life of people by realizing this.

    To be a reliable partner even over the phone

    For many of customers, remote technical support is the first contact to XEBEC.
    Female sales representative is not very common in the machine tool indsutry and it is true that customers seem surprized or worried when I resposend to them. I always try to provide professional, speedy, and sincere service and that makes more and more customers feel comfortable for consultation.

    Even though technical suppport over the phone is not a face-to-face conversation, we are working on to improve the service quality and build the team structure so that we can be the reliable partner for customers who are faicing the problems.

    "I want to be unique." This is what brought me to this industry which is far away from what I am originally good at; the Internet, creating advertisements and such. I thought I could be "unique" in XEBEC. XEBEC is an open company that accepts new cultures and new people from the completely different field.

    I believe, my mission as a to this industry, is to bring innovation by throwing brand-new ideas and triger mutations.
    I aim to bring unique innovations and fascinate the world by crossing the different fields at both individual and organizational levels.

Company name and logo

XEBEC is a Latin word, which stands for a sailing ship with three masts. It played an important role in the Mediterranean Sea in the 14th century. The ship had the innovative design at that time; it sailed at high speed by gathering wind at the front sail and efficiently sent it to the middle sail which is the main one.

In order to develop our business, we aim for the following goals. Like “XEBEC’s three sails”, suppliers of raw and other materials, manufacturers who make products, and dealers who deliver the products to customers develop high skills and expertise, cooperate with each other and head for a destination, which means gaining customers’ trust and satisfying them, at high speed. Within the company, shareholders, board members and employees fully take each role, respect each other, cooperate in unison and create great values in the society.

This is our fundamental management philosophy which gets through the symbolic meaning of “XEBEC”.

Founder Takehiko Sumiyoshi

On the 3rd of June, 2012, our company celebrated 17th year in business.

Since its foundation, our business foundation and members have reformed as well as the changes of the global situation and business environment. Therefore, we formulated the corporate identity (CI) to remain the ever-lasting company that continues to change while maintaining the uniqueness.

The CI integrates an image of a “sail” of a sailing ship which is the origin of XEBEC and “X” of the company name XEBEC. The sharp edges express “innovative spirit and strong will” to push forward an era. The soft curves represent “flexibility and familiarity” that transforms the support of all the involved parties into power to move forward.

We succeed the founder’s will and spirit and will continue to strive as the innovator to open up the new era.
