Outline of President's Greeting in Initiation Ceremony of Year 2013

Osamu Inoue, President

Sumitomo Wiring Systems, Ltd. will celebrate our 100th year in business in 2017. We are currently implementing activities based on the ""17 VISION"" midterm management plan, aiming to acquire the position of ""Global No. 1"" in the wiring harness industry by that commemorative year. I expect new employees to exercise all of your fresh energy and contribute to the achievement of our targets.
So as you embark on your journey in the workforce, I would ask you to keep the following three points in mind:

1. Be a person to be trusted by other people

Business is a team game, and results are produced through connections with many people, such as your boss at work and senior workers. It is important to establish good human relationships, where you can trust other people and other people can trust you. Please remember that you cannot produce high-quality products or high-value added output until you become a person to be trusted.

2. Be a person who can take an active part globally

"Manufacturing relies on development of personnel." Although SWS has already been implementing production, development, and sales activities in 31 countries, it is required that all employees become 'people to be accepted by international standards' in its true sense to further expand our business operations. This means that, regardless of whether you are in Japan or overseas, you must acquire the abilities required as a professional with a global mind so that you can consider matters from a global perspective. I expect you, our young personnel, will play an important role as global personnel at the forefront of actual work sites from the earliest possible time.

3. Strive for self-improvement by setting the goal

While the business environment surrounding companies has rapidly been changing, it is more important for each of you to acquire the latest knowledge and skills. I would like all new employees to set the high goal and improve yourselves to acquire abilities and skills applicable anywhere. I am convinced that the steady accumulation of efforts made by each of you reinforces the organization, leading to companywide improvement.
I sincerely expect that you always take care of yourself mentally and physically, and will greatly progress as human resources to forge the future of SWS.


As of April 1, 2013 Number of new employees for career-track position: 94 (19 administrative employees and 75 engineering employees)
