My name is Kazuhiro Sato, the president of JTEKT Corporation.
On behalf of the company, I would like to thank you for your support
of the Koyo brand over the years.
We sincerely appreciate it.
The Koyo brand was first introduced in 1921,
and this year we have reached the milestone anniversary of 100 years.
This is thanks to our predecessors’ continuous efforts to seek
and more competitive prices.
In other words, provide "quality products at affordable prices",
which enables us to stay competitive against foreign products.
We also owe our success to the support provided by our dealerships and the patronage of our customers.
The Koyo brand remains an important brand to our company
and continues to play a key role.
It is said that we are undergoing a “once in a century
transition” these days,
with the rapid evolution of information technologies leading to dramatic changes in people’s lifestyles and industrial structures.
One-hundred years is a true milestone.
We must swiftly respond to these dramatic changes
to achieve our vision of No. 1 & Only One.
For society and for customers,
our focus is on “Tree-Ring Management”,
that means gradual and steady growth built on all employees’ efforts for continuous kaizen.
Please join us in looking forward to the future of Koyo and the next 100 years.
We humbly request that you will continue to provide us with your patronage of the Koyo brand.
