Message of the President
Ever since it first began developing industry-leading original connectors with its own technologies, Hirose Electric has established its position in growing trust and recognition as a specialized manufacturer of connectors. Today, we are accelerating our efforts to further expand our global business. We also express our deep gratitude that we would not be where we are today without the kind support of our customers and business partners.
The entire Hirose Electric Group has a basic philosophy “a small company connecting wisdom.” This philosophy encapsulates our wish to produce original products by seeking outside knowledge with an honest and humble attitude, and then linking this vast store of available knowledge and wisdom with the ones we have cultivated on our own. It further puts our wish to be a company that continuously takes a leap toward tomorrow by using the closeness of communication, impetus, and efficiency that are advantages of small companies. Our slogan “Creative Links to World Electronics” is also rooted in this philosophy.
Looking forward, we believe the electronics field will see the continuing materialization of new functions and services. They will come not only from technical progress along traditional and conventional lines but also the mutual integration of new domains and different fields. And we feel strongly that the hardware to support them will, more than ever before, require the development of innovative connectors based on new concepts and technologies. Hirose Electric has developed and supplied products that meet market demand by applying its marketing and innovative prowess. As we respond to changing times and markets, we will take on whatever challenges are necessary to satisfy our customers with always forward-looking product development and realize an affluent society through electronics products.
Our efforts here give us every confidence that we can look forward to the loyal support and patronage of our customers in the years to come.
HRS MANAGEMENT PRINCIPLES
Hirose will connect wisdom by thinking small, create new value, and contribute to the development of a global society.
"The principle of ‘being small’" represents our aspiration that we should always consider ourselves small and remain a company with great potential. On the other hand, "connecting wisdom" represents our desire to absorb external knowledge and wisdom with honesty and humility, translate them into excellent original products by connecting them with our own internal knowledge and wisdom, and then provide such products to the world. In this way, we intend to produce even greater results as a means of realizing the aspiration described above.
With these basic principles, we aim to develop, manufacture, and distribute excellent connectors that can, with their "connecting" function, bring different parts and products --- which are themselves crystallizations of people’s wisdom --- together, produce various new products, and contribute to the development of a global society.
