For over half a century, Omron has cherished its Corporate Motto: "At work for a better life, a better world for all." Our Core Value: "Working for the benefit of society," is a concise expression of this same spirit.
Omron's business has grown in tandem with industrial automation since the days of its founding, and we have served to underpin the development of the manufacturing sector both in Japan and abroad. Quick to sense diversifying social needs, Omron has also assisted societal progress and development by providing products and services that anticipate future needs in the areas of societal infrastructure and healthcare.
To preserve this abiding spirit of enterprise that Omron has inherited from its founder, and to continue generating new value, Omron is progressing toward the next stage of its endeavors.
The recent rise of emerging markets in Asia and elsewhere is accelerating globalization of markets. In heavily populated countries such as China and India in particular, consumer markets are expanding rapidly, and this in turn is generating massive demand. Utilizing our expertise in control equipment, electronic components, automotive electronic components, social and environmental solutions, and healthcare devices, we will generate the kind of new value that only Omron can create, with the hope of supporting the further development of emerging markets.
Meanwhile, growing interest in a sustainable "zero-waste" society is catalyzing a global sea change in the way people think about the environment and energy issues. Always quick to perceive such changes, Omron aims to maximize environmental efficiency through efficient use of environmental and natural energy resources, based on the new assumption that our planet, too, can be considered one of our "stakeholders." We will also further advance our core Sensing & Control technologies in order to bring about new innovations.
Omron wishes to be a "global value creating group." Underlying this goal is our strong determination to bring about a brighter tomorrow by generating new value that can be only be conceived by assuming a "Planet Earth" perspective, in addition to more conventional human and social perspectives. To make these objectives a reality, we have drawn up a new long-term management strategy, entitled "Value Generation 2020," so that we can implement the Omron Principles to a greater degree than ever before.
Omron will continue to take on the challenge of growing into a global group that our customers and society at large can rely on and depend on.
