Message from President
In its long journey together with customers, partners, other individuals and societies since its foundation in 1884, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has sought to pioneer new approaches in manufacturing. These efforts have yielded many products that have enriched the lives of people around the world, and through them MHI has contributed to the development of societies.
In recent years the outstanding growth witnessed by emerging markets, particularly in China and India, underscores the vital need that we establish our presence throughout the global marketplace and maintain all aspects of our operations - our technological capabilities, price competitiveness, customer services and earning strength - at a top level internationally.
The MHI Group's turnover stands at approximately 3 trillion yen. In order to continue to rank in the international market as a manufacturer supporting society and infrastructure, we must target the 5 trillion yen level, working with stakeholders to expand our operation and building new platforms that contribute to society.
To maximize the powerful synergy of the MHI Group, we have reorganized our 700 products into four business domains (divisions): "Energy & Environment," "Machinery, Equipment & Systems," "Transportation" and "Defense & Space."
We are also reorganizing our management structure to ensure each domain actively expands its business based upon its own optimal business strategy.
Accordingly, we have adopted a stance of incorporating that which will benefit us or what we require externally and a shift to global standards of thought and methods, while still maintaining the high technological level and constant drive for improvement that embody the strengths of the MHI Group.
We aim to make the most of our strengths by working with excellent partners in nurturing our business growth, both in terms of size and profitability.
We express our value to society through our CI statement, "Our Technologies, Your Tomorrow."
Every member of the MHI Group shares the firm intention to "continuously provide an assured future where people can live safe, secure and enriched lives through technologies that can excite people and passion as a manufacturer for the sustainability of the earth and humankind."
Inspired by the strong passion of our CI statement, we have taken up the challenge of establishing a corporation with a truly global presence.
Please continue to support the MHI Group in this goal.
President and CEO
