Beda Bolzenius

Calsonic Kansei was founded in 1938. Cultivating the spirit of Monozukuri, we have continued to provide products that play critical roles in automobiles across the world. Although we are a Japanese company, we boast a global workforce that numbers in excess of 20,000 people. Regardless of their nationality, each of our employees works towards the same, shared goal. We are a truly global company.
2018 is a milestone year for Calsonic Kansei, marking as it does the 80th anniversary of our founding. It is for me both a great honor and a privilege to be part of this company.
With the advent of innovative technologies and the arrival of new competitors from other industries, the automotive industry currently stands at a major crossroads. At Calsonic Kansei, however, we understand these crossroads to be a chance.
As a truly independent company, we aim to cooperate with our suppliers, third parties, partners and customers to use our advanced, top-level Monozukuri to open up new, diverse customer bases and expand our business. At the same time, we intend to boldly execute our growth strategies. I believe my personal mission is to take advantage of the prevailing opportunities and guide Calsonic Kansei to achieving the goals laid out in Compass 2021-the mid-term business plan that ends in fiscal 2021; and, if possible, to exceed these goals.
Calsonic Kansei seeks through inspiration and innovation to become a system solution provider at the vanguard of the global automotive industry, and thereby contribute to the realization of a sustainable society. Calsonic Kansei looks forward to your continued support as we undertake these challenges.
