President’s Message

We will soon celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of “Sanyo Denko Co., Ltd.” in a traditional town, Jujo, in Tokyo. We are proud of our contribution to the development of Japan until today through times from the confusing period after the Second World War to the period of rapid economic growth.
Electric wires and cables are an important element of our social infrastructure and necessary for our country, Japan, which claims a policy to be technology oriented. Although we are a small manufacturer, we strive to manufacture products taking full advantage of the company scale. We always consider the viewpoints of our customers, challenge various requests as much as possible, such as deliveries of small lots and in a short time, design and manufacturing of special cables which can withstand severe environments, development of our original products based on many years of experience, and try to meet our customers’ expectation.
We will continue to make our efforts for product-manufacturing to contribute to enrichment of our society through provision of products and services which satisfy our customers.
