Dear our valued customers and partners,

As of April 1, I have assumed office as General Manager of the Robot Business Division.

The world market for industrial robots had a drawback in 2019 due to the US-China trade friction and the new corona virus. The year 2020 is not clear because we do not know yet when the pandemic comes to an end.

However, I believe that the human wisdom can and will solve this disaster, and good economy will be back sooner or later. It is clear that the aging society needs robots for automation and labor-saving. In order to correspond to such strong needs, I have organized the Global Strategic Department to strengthen the network with overseas subsidiaries and distributors. Resources are also allocated in pursuit of expanding semiconductor and painting robot businesses through product differentiation.

In addition to our values of speed, responsibility and hospitality, I would like to start activities of 4Cs; “Challenge”, “Change”, “Communication” and “Cooperation” to offer excellent products and services of high added values.

I am looking forward to working closely with our customers and partners, and therefore appreciate your continued support.
