I intend to lead Furukawa Electric Group brightly and bravely, and promote an even stronger Furukawa Electric brand

Furukawa Electric Group has the following Corporate Philosophy: “Drawing on more than a century of expertise in the development and fabrication of advanced materials, we will contribute to the realization of a rich and sustainable society through continuous technological innovation.” Ever since our foundation in 1884, we have built our business on communicating, linking, and storing energy, information and heat. We have developed a wide variety of products around the world in infrastructure fields, such as telecommunications and energy, as well as in other fields such as automotive components and electronics, based on our three materials technologies – “metals”, “photonics”, and “polymers”.

Currently, we are promoting our medium-term management plan, the Furukawa G Plan 2020, which runs to Fiscal Year 2020. The world is undergoing dramatic and rapid change. I want us to be able to promote ongoing reforms without slackening our pace, and to provide all of our stakeholders with peace of mind and exciting times ahead. In order to achieve this, I intend to lead Furukawa Electric Group brightly and bravely, and to promote an even stronger Furukawa Electric brand under the slogan, “Passion, Perseverance, and Pride”.

In order to achieve this, we have set out the following policies,

which we need to pursue consistently:

  1. Co-develop new value with our customers as true partners;
  2. Achieve competitive the MONOZUKURI;
  3. Tirelessly take on the challenge of new products, new technologies, and new manufacturing methods;
  4. Foster human resources capable of opening up the next generation.

As we take on these challenges, your ongoing support and cooperation will be more important to us than ever.
