Management Message

Aiming for increasing our corporate value by supporting people to achieve their own purpose and realizing a sustainable society

I first would like to express my deepest condolences to the people around the world who have lost friends and family due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pray for a quick recovery for people who have contracted the virus. I would also like to express my deepest respect to the government and local officials working on the front lines to prevent the spread of the disease and to the healthcare professionals at medical facilities who are working day and night to diagnose and treat patients with the virus.

The latest digital innovations such as IoT and artificial intelligence (AI) are bringing unprecedented revolutions to all industries. Our daily lives and the way we do business will see substantial changes going forward. In the unprecedented chaos of the COVID-19 pandemic, there are also major changes in people's sense of values nowadays.

As a digital company with insight into implicit challenges, Konica Minolta leads social reform by realizing the opportunities brought by this period of change. Since our foundation, we have developed and refined our imaging technologies. We have forged an important bond with approximately two million corporate clients from all parts of the globe. More than 40000 Konica Minolta employees are currently working to transform ourselves to create the world in which everyone in the value chain can achieve their own purpose and well-being by having insight into the true challenges of our customers and solving them with our customer centric mind.

To grow as a global company, we must continue to help society move forward. This means doing our part to solve global environmental issues and improve quality of life. More than 40,000 Konica Minolta employees around the world are dedicated to improving their individual skills to maximize performance and openly connect with external companies and people, including customers, suppliers, and business partners.

We are committed to creating new value to evolve our society for the better. I personally remain passionate about what the future holds and I greatly appreciate your continued support of the Konica Minolta Group.
