Sanken Electric Co., Ltd. was established in 1946, at the very beginning of the postwar period. At the time, the semiconductor industry was still in its infancy. We pursued research and development of semiconductors and used the technologies we developed to begin manufacturing power supply products. Since that time, Sanken has grown along with the electronics industry, and the company has established a firm position as a power electronics manufacturer, providing high-quality solutions to meet diverse customer needs. We will focus on the expansion of the semiconductors that are our core business, seek to improve the competitiveness of the products we make for the booming flat-screen television market, and continue to use our accumulated knowledge and expertise to provide society with original and creative products as a power electronics innovator.
Against the background of a business environment that is expected to remain uncertain, we aim to further secure an income base, strengthen our corporate structure, promote speed and innovation in technical development and production, and seek to expand the business foundations that are essential to global corporate competition.
The 21st century will bring both great challenges and great rewards. To meet these challenges and to successfully accommodate changing social needs, Sanken will work to ensure that its efforts lead to decisive achievements that will earn even greater confidence on the part of all stakeholders - customers, end users, employees, shareholders and members of the community - and enable Sanken to be recognized as a company that offers true value and contributes to the development of global industry, economic development and culture.
