Greeting from President

Ever since our founding in 1929, the Akebono Group has made safety a key priority. Our history has been one of perfecting monozukuri, the manufacture of value-added products.

Akebono has a proud legacy of achieving Japanese technological firsts. From its inception, Akebono initiated overseas technical tie-ups and offshore production. These were not only related to brakes for automobiles, railways and industrial machinery, but to technological developments in the field of sensors as well. All of these activities stem from the constant demands of improving quality and increasing customer satisfaction.

On a Group-wide basis, Akebono is addressing issues faced by companies today, including global environmental protection, enhanced safety, and product quality improvements.
We embarked upon corporate brand activities from 2005 to encourage all employees to engage in heightening their awareness about the power of the corporate brand.

We deem it very important to be aware of the pleasure and satisfaction of contributing to society through our products, of taking pride in our work and meeting expectations with sincerity. The Akebono Group considers its mission to be the delivery of absolute safety through its relentless pursuit of monozukuri.

Hisataka Nobumoto
Chairman, President & CEO
