Corporate Philosophy and CSR Initiatives

The Fujikura Group's Management Approach

The Fujikura Group was founded with a progressive spirit and has cherished and passed down its corporate DNA as a manufacturing company over 126 years. Against this backdrop and from the viewpoint of our customers, we identify what we should do and what we should not do, and always act accordingly based on a corporate culture in which we put first priority on quality. On that basis, all corporate staff members abide by the Group’s management rules and promote synergy between our production, sales, and R&D bases, driven by the Global Fujikura Production System (G-FPS) as well as by our commitment to CSR and to a better manufacturing culture. Through these measures, we aim to achieve our vision for the four business fields (Telecommunications,Eelectronics, Aautomotive components, and Mmetal cables & Ssystems) described in the Mid-Term Business Plan. In achieving this vision, we will implement our Corporate Philosophy MVCV and become a corporate group that pursues "Value Creation for the Customer" and is appreciated by customers and highly evaluated by society, while achieving further growth for the entire Group.
