Mitsubishi Electric Group Celebrates 100th Anniversary

Let’s create new value together.

Mitsubishi Electric was founded in 1921, which was a time of both confusion and hope. Despite this uncertainty, the company set a clear vision for the next 100 years.

To encourage employees as they faced various challenges, the company’s first chairman, Hideo Takeda, stated that “The ‘Electrical Age’ is at hand, and although we are in the middle of a major depression, we must endure this difficult time and continue ever onward to develop ourselves for a brighter tomorrow.”

Since our founding, we have indeed faced many challenges, but our dedication to improve peoples’ lifestyles has remained steadfast for 100 years. The Mitsubishi Electric Group continues to grow by contributing to the realization of a vibrant and sustainable society.

Now, as the world faces increasingly dramatic changes, we must again come together and look ahead to the next 100 years. Through our efforts to solve many complex issues facing societies around the world, our aim is to help create a sustainable and prosperous society in which everyone can share.

Our challenge for the next 100 years is to work towards this goal through our business activities, by combining all the strengths inside and outside of the Group, through continuous technological innovation and ceaseless creativity.

Synergy is the key. I, together with the 150,000 members of the Mitsubishi Electric family worldwide, am ready to work with you as a member of society to improve the future. And if each of us strengthens our individual dedication to this goal by finding synergies with each other, together we will be the driving force towards a brighter tomorrow.

This means trusting and enhancing each other regardless of age or position, and finding ways to create new value that cannot be achieved by a single individual alone.

With our unwavering resolve to deliver “Changes for the Better” empowering our every move, the Mitsubishi Electric Group will boldly take a new step forward into a better future.
