The Fujikura Group Corporate Philosophy
Since its founding in 1885, Fujikura has contributed to the betterment of society by providing advanced technologies backed by uncompromising reliability. Previously, our strength was attributable to a highly stable business built on strong partnerships with a number of blue-chip customers. However, the markets that are key to the future survival of Fujikura lie in the highly competitive global arena. If we are to survive and prosper in these constantly changing markets, we must fundamentally reform our corporate culture.
To achieve this objective, we formulated in August 2005 a new set of business principles titled Mission, Vision, Core Values, to be shared by all Fujikura Group employees. These principles will help us successfully navigate a new and successful course through our reformation and the Third Era.
Since then, the competitive environment surrounding our group has continued to intensify. Along with the formulation of the 2015 Mid-Term Business Plan, we re-established Mission, Vision, Core Values as the Fujikura Group Corporate Philosophy in October 2011, stipulating that all group employees share a set of principles. The group corporate philosophy was based on our belief that it is essential to boost our reform efforts to help build a stronger corporate structure and enable us to maintain high profitability and achieve sound, stable growth.
The Fujikura Group's mission is to create exceptional value for our customers around the world using "Tsunagu" (the Japanese word meaning "connecting") technologies.
We dedicate ourselves to providing exceptional products and solutions earning our customers' trust and contributing to society.
Fujikura's vision is to be the most trusted partner in our markets, to continuously develop innovative and relevant products and solutions, and to positively impact our communities.
We strive to become the leading player in our markets by utilizing our "Tsunagu" technologies, tirelessly developing innovative and useful products and solutions.
Each individual within the company will endeavor to become an essential player, thus developing a team that can truly help Fujikura make its mark on the world stage.
