CLARK FREEPORT— An executive of a Japanese manufacturing company of interior components and sub-assembly parts for aircraft here cited the competencies of Filipino workers as one of their reasons for establishing a facility in this freeport. 

JAMCO Philippines director Katsushige Hasumi said the skills and attitude of Filipino workers have met the expectation of their company.

"JAMCO decided to establish a facility in the Philippines because the Philippines have people with above-average English language ability, higher academic achievement or educational level, higher industrious spirit and good work ethics," Hasumi said referring to his companys employees. 

Hasumi made the statement during the plenary conference of the Aeromart Summit here last week. He added that the "stability of the workforce" here and the ideal pyramids of population have also contributed to the efficiency of their production to achieve the goals of the company. 

"JAMCO Philippines employees gained the confidence from Jamco Tokyo that they can do more than what is expected. They can produce product on quality, on time and at the proper cost," he said. 

"As a result, Jamco Philippines became one of the key suppliers to achieve our mission," he added. 

JAMCO Philippines established its facility here in 2011 starting the business with only 22 employees and expanding it after six years with a total of 317 current workers.

The Japanese company is a premier supplier of commercial aircraft interiors, seats, galleys and lavatories as well as interior components of Airbus and Boeing aircrafts. 

Its operation in the country is an AS9100C multi-site certified company which supports the JAMCO group in the manufacturing of parts and assemblies for its US and Japan operations which are eventually fitted to Boeing planes.
