Leaders' message

In pursuit of “human-centered automation,” our aim is to be a corporate group that helps to solve the problems faced by our customers.

Hirozumi Sone, President & Group CEO

Since our establishment in 1906, we have focused on measurement and control technologies, delivering unique solutions to our customers. In April 2012, we changed our company name from Yamatake Corporation to Azbil Corporation. Now with products bearing the azbil brand, which thanks to our customers has achieved wide recognition, we aim to provide “the unique value” offered by the azbil Group 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.

In 2018, as the company reaches the halfway point of the three-year medium-term management plan started last year, we are determined to continue making every effort to ensure the achievement of our goals by being a long-term partner for the customer and the community by offering solutions based on our technologies and products; by taking global operations to the next level by expansion into new regions and a qualitative change of focus; and by being a corporate organization that never stops learning, so that it can continuously grow stronger. Around the world, in order to achieve sustainable growth for our company, we are strengthening our life-cycle business, while at the same time exploring new areas for the automation business and expanding our operations in environmental and energy fields.

Through the pursuit of human-centered automation, automation that creates human happiness and a sense of fulfillment, the azbil Group will press forward together as a unified Group with the aim of being a corporate group that continues to create new value on work sites together with our customers and helps them to meet the wide variety of challenges that they face.
