Message from Chairman and President

Chairman and CEO:Mitsuo Okamoto President:Tsutomu Isobe

AMADA HOLDINGS CO., LTD. , a company which is constantly chosen by its customers and by the community, has taken the first step towards guaranteeing its first century in business.

The AMADA Group launched its new corporate structure on April 1st 2015.

Changes in corporate structures and systems are inevitable as times change, but this does not mean that we will be changing our core values and business activities, or that we will forget where we came from.

‘Growing Together with Our Customers’

As soon as the company was established in 1946, we began to think about what our customers who were determined to get into manufacturing (monozukuri) would need, both at that time and into the future. We offered a number of solution proposals to propective customers, some of which were selected, and thankfully these met their needs. We are proud to be able to supply our customers with what they need, even as these needs have evolved in tandem with the development of our society in terms of quality requirement, speed, energy saving and environmental concerns.

Nevertheless, we have reached the decision that in order to be able to continue to provide our customers with metalworking solutions of higher quality and more rapidly within the parameters of the ever changing global market, we must restructure our company to create a stronger management foundation. Therefore we are making the transition to a holding company structure.

Our manufacturing (monozukuri) contributes to the monozukuri of our customers all over the world, and we recognize the fact that this is linked to the development of local and regional communities and the international community. It is our responsibility, as the AMADA Group, to continually enrich the futures of the people of the world through our metalworking industry.

We have embarked on a new journey to ensure that we will continue to be needed and chosen by the community and our customers in 2016, our 70th anniversary year, and going on towards our centenary. We will continue to develop together with our customers, and to grow as a company which contributes to the community.
