Mr. Yoshufumi Kato
DENSO is a $44.6 billion global mobility supplier that develops advanced technology and components for nearly every vehicle make and model on the road today. With manufacturing at its core, DENSO invests in its 200 facilities to produce thermal, powertrain, mobility, electrification, & electronic systems, to create jobs that directly change how the world moves. The company’s 168,000+ employees are paving the way to a mobility future that improves lives, eliminates traffic accidents, and preserves the environment.
A consistently high level of R&D investment has been central to creating DENSO’s renowned technological expertise in numerous product categories. DENSO spent 10.0 percent of its global consolidated sales on research and development in the fiscal year ending March 31, 2021.
This drives technological innovation which, in turn, generates the next cycle of products.
DENSO‘s fundamental R&D structure is built on a number of organizations in Japan - the DENSO Research Laboratories, Corporate R&D Department, Production Engineering R&D Department, SOKEN, INC., and DENSO IT Laboratory. Each of DENSO’s five key business groups also has independent R&D sections.
DENSO‘s slogan of Long-Term Policy 2030, ‘Bringing hope for the future for our planet, society and all people’ represents our ambition to contribute to the fields of “green” and “peace of mind” for the sake of customers.
In the field of “green,” we have set our target of achieving a carbon neutral by 2035. Additionally, in the field of "peace of mind", we will remain fully committed to be a leading company providing safety-related technologies, contributing to zero accidents.
