Mr Horiba, Chairman, President & CEO

The HORIBA Group, made up of 39 companies in 26 countries, is a leading company that provides analytical and measurement systems throughout the world.

Our business is evolving in the markets of automotive testing, scientific instruments, process and environmental instruments, medical diagnostics and semiconductor instruments. We have displayed our strength in the global market, especially in the fields of automotive emissions and stack-gas measurement, air pollution, water pollution monitoring, quality control in various industries, and clinical diagnosis, achieving dramatic growth over the past few years. It is our continual source of joy and pride that our analytical and measurement business can contribute to global environmental conservation, safety and health, and moreover to improving energy problems. I believe that it is this pride which fuels our ability to provide competitive products.

Possessing pride and a spirit of challenge in the work to which the most dynamic period of our lives is devoted, and tackling it with excitement, makes for a more satisfying life. We have incorporated the desire to spend our days with more Joy and Fun into our company precept, in the spirit that has been handed down since the company was founded. The source of our growth is that the approximately 6,000 HORIBARIANs around the globe (so named because we consider the employees of the HORIBA group as the same family) well understand the philosophy of the company’s “Omoshiro Okashiku” - Joy and Fun precept and put it into practice on a daily basis.

We intend to continue contributing to society with pride and a spirit of challenge.
