Hitachi Kokusai Electric Inc.

Kaichiro Sakuma

Hitachi Kokusai Electric was formed in October 2000 from the merger of three Hitachi Group companies engaged in businesses related to video, wireless communications, and semiconductor manufacturing equipment. Since then, we have helped build infrastructure for a safe and affluent society under our corporate statement (“Hitachi Kokusai Electric Group strives to realize a society of security, safety, and happiness; creates value by applying advanced technologies; and pushes the boundaries of tomorrow”) and the Hitachi Kokusai Electric Way (“1. Customers First; 2. Global Leader; 3. Human Assets; 4. Basics and Ethics; 5. Harmony, Sincerity, and Pioneering Spirit”). To do this, we are actively engaged in creating new value in the area of "Video and Wireless Network Solutions" (wireless communications, information, broadcasting, and video) and in the area of "Thin Film Processing Solutions" (semiconductor manufacturing equipment).

Hitachi Kokusai Electric Group divested the thin-film process solutions business (business related to semiconductor manufacturing equipment) in June 2018. We started under the new framework, using our strengths of video, wireless communications, broadcast and transmitter technologies.

Responding to qualitative changes in the social infrastructure has become a major issue. In light of this, we will make use of our strengths and shift our focus from system-type products that revolve around our video and wireless technologies, to solutions businesses such as video security solutions and risk management solutions for a safe and secure society, as well as to advanced sensor solutions that utilize IoT sensor technology and big data.

The Hitachi Kokusai Electric Group will continue to work towards further enhancing customer trust and creating an affluent society though monozukuri.*

Monozukuri is defined as all creative activities carried out by the Hitachi Kokusai Electric Group, including the development and provision of products and services, among others.
