Message from the Plant Manager

Plant Manager  Junichi Hirobe
Plant Manager Junichi Hirobe

The management philosophy of the Kyocera Group is "Coexisting with Our Community, Coexisting with Global Society and Coexisting with Nature. Harmonious coexistence ("Living Together") is the underlying foundation of all our business activities as we work to create a world of prosperity and harmony."
This management philosophy contains a strong desire to respect nature, strive to contribute to environmental conservation and hope to become a corporation that lives together with nature and is kind to the Earth.
The neighborhood of the Hirakata Plant, located in the suburbs of an urban area relatively close to the three cities of Osaka, Kyoto, and Nara, is rich in nature, with the Hotani River; Yamada Pond, which is famous as a bird-watching site; and the "Satoyama of Hotani Area," which was selected as one of the top 1000 Monitoring Sites*1 and Top 100 Villages of Japan*2. Also, the academic research district, which is a part of Kansai Science City, is located near this verdant area; an exceptional environment, where nature, people and society coexist.
The Hirakata Plant has been here in the Hirakata Tsuda area for over 50 years since its establishment, thanks to the support from local people and society. Grateful for their hospitality, we will continue to work on business activities with safety and peace of mind as the first priority, as well as the contribution to natural and environmental preservation more actively.
