IRApr 18, 2013

 YASKAWA Electric Corporation (Chairman and President Junji Tsuda; Head office: Kitakyushu City, Fukuoka Prefecture, Japan; “Yaskawa”) has started implementing a new mid-term plan for the period from 2013 to 2015, “Realize 100”. It represents the final stage of Yaskawa’s progress towards the realization of its “Vision 2015” as it approaches the centennial of the company’s founding.


1.Role and objectives of the mid-term plan

 During the previous mid-term plan “Challenge 100” period Yaskawa has made preparations to develop new markets in the Robotics Human Assist and Environment & Energy new business domains, expanded global operations by improving responsiveness in regional markets, and implemented growth strategies to reduce its dependence on market growth in the Mechatronics Solutions core business domain.


 As the new mid-term plan represents the final stage, in other words the realization phase, of Yaskawa’s long-term plan to achieve the goals set in the “Vision 2015”, the name “Realize 100” was adopted.
 In order to realize these goals, Yaskawa will reap the benefits of the long-term strategies implemented during the “Challenge 100” period during the three years of “Realize 100”, and by further evolving these it will build a high-profit company structure (operating income above 10%) – a milestone to becoming a true global company.
