Since our establishment in 1906, we have focused on measurement and control technology, delivering unique solutions to our customers. In April 2012, we changed our company name from Yamatake Corporation to Azbil Corporation. Now with the azbil brand, which thanks to our customers has achieved wide familiarity, we aim to provide the azbil Group's unique value to customers around the world in a variety of settings, including offices, production sites, and homes, by promoting our building automation, advanced automation, and life automation businesses

This year, our company celebrates the 110th anniversary of its founding. At present, the azbil Group is pressing ahead to achieve the targets of its medium-term plan for FY 2016 by becoming a long-term partner for the customer and the community through the provision of solutions based on azbil technologies and products; taking global operations to the next level, with expansion into new regions and a qualitative change of focus; and becoming an organization that never stops learning, so that it continuously grows stronger. In order to achieve steady growth we are expanding worldwide and seizing opportunities to provide energy management, safety, and peace of mind, while also transforming our businesses and operations for effective response to dramatically changing business environments.

Yamatake for 100 years, "azbil" for 10 years. Together 110 years. In the future too, pressing forward together as a unified Group in pursuit of human-centered automation-automation that creates human happiness and a sense of fulfillment-we will strive to create new value on work sites together with our customers, helping them to meet the wide variety of challenges that they face.
