Objective of the project

HTS was established in 2000 as a service subsidiary of the HORIBA Group, in response to the expansion of the after-sales service market in the measuring instruments industry. HTS networks with 50 group companies in 28 countries to support engineers even outside of Japan and provide users of HORIBA products with maintenance services. Once established, the Kyoto Head Office will be the global hub of the HORIBA Group’s service business, connecting service centers and analysis laboratories from around the world, with goals to create a new business through the analysis of information gathered through those global connections and to offer innovative solutions. Concurrently, greater efforts will be made to train and back technical engineers throughout the country and the world, thereby building a framework for providing high-value-added support for customers.
Given the need to enhance the functions of the headquarters, as well as the engineering division, in order to reinforce and expand the service business both in and out of Japan, the decision has been made to build a new Head Office.
