I’d like to deeply thank all of our stakeholders for supporting Hitachi Zosen Fukui Corporation.
I got re-elected as President, according to the approval on the 54th Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders and Board of Directors.
Our main customers are automobile manufacturers. Automobile industry is now approaching a turning point which comes only once in a century due to development of new technologies such as EV technology. Besides that major changes, sales in the United States appear to lose some of their recent strength and there is uncertainty in the global economy especially in emerging countries.
At these severe circumstances, we will improve cost competitiveness further and promote to develop new products which meet customers’ needs.
We will put more effort into proposing new production processes just as we developed laser blanking line, in addition to providing products which meets customers’ current needs to handle new material and improve productivity.
We will address those challenges and support our customers’ manufacturing.
We would like to ask for your continuous support and encouragement.
