Kawasaki’s Precision Machinery Company, which the Robot Division fell under, changed its name to Precision Machinery and Robot Company on April 1, 2018. Thanks to your support, Kawasaki’s robot business is growing rapidly, and we celebrate our 50th anniversary this year. We are evolving from an industrial robot manufacturer to a fully-integrated robot manufacturer.
As of April 1, Yasuhiko Hashimoto (Managing Executive Officer) has been promoted to President of Precision Machinery and Robot Company, while Shinji Fujita (Executive Officer) has been appointed General Manager of the Robot Division. We at Kawasaki wish to take this opportunity to thank our customers for their continued patronage.
