Founded in 1937, Japanese company Hirose Manufacturing changed its name to Hirose Electric 60 years ago this year. Today, Hirose Electric specializes in the manufacturing of electric connectors.
From development to delivery, Hirose Electric (China) has become an innovative supplier of interconnects to China and is sharpening its antennae to meet demand.
“Hirose Electric is recognized across China as a professional manufacturer of the world’s leading high-performance connectors,” said Takao Kimura, CEO of Hirose Electric (China).
“We manufacture various kinds of connectors for key markets, including the medical equipment, smartphone, automotive, industrial controls and robotics sectors.
“Although the pandemic has come to an end, market conditions remain challenging this year. Business confidence in China has decreased, problems in Russia continue and based on the current situation, it will take time for markets to recover. In the meantime, we will continue to strengthen the capabilities of our local China sales offices. We are also addressing productivity, quality and cost issues and strengthening our manufacturing capabilities in China.”
Hirose’s development capabilities are the lifeblood of the company. With this aspect of the business remaining strong, the company is able to concentrate on delivering valuable proposals to customers.
“As a company we provide value by proposing new concept connectors that meet customer requirements from the early stage,” Kimura said.
“We continue to provide value-driven solutions to our customers by investing in digital tools and by doing so, we are able to better engage with the market. Hirose is playing an important role in the company’s global operations, and investments in research and development in China will create growth.”
In China, the company is developing a quick-response system to better manage requests from customers and is focusing on technologies such as e-commerce to develop the business.
“We will continue to prioritize our clients and partners and by staying in close contact with our customers — we will deliver complete customer satisfaction,” Kimura added.
