Amano’s management philosophy is to create new values and contribute to the realization of a safe, comfortable and a wholesome society in the fields of "People & Time" and "People & Environment." Under this management philosophy and based on an optimal governance structure that responds to changes in the business environment, we will strive to maximize corporate value by ensuring sustained growth through the creation of new businesses and markets with a medium-to-long term global perspective, in addition to expanding our existing businesses. Furthermore, we will aim to become a company that has the trust and high regard of all the stakeholders including customers, business partner companies, shareholders, employees and the local community by constantly returning a fair profit earned through business activities.
Based on our long-term business vision, "Towards a 100-year Company," the five businesses units (Information Systems, Time Management Products, Parking Systems, Environmental Systems, and Clean Systems) are developing their businesses globally mainly in Japan, North America, Europe and Asia. As a global solution provider that takes into consideration the characteristics of both the business and the region, we will focus on expanding and deepening business domains aiming to become a company that is well versed for each regional market.
In addition, the concept of the 7th Medium-term Business Plan that commenced in April 2017 is "The 2nd Stage Towards a 100-year Company - Innovative Creation of Value for Sustainable Growth" through which we will further accelerate Regional Growth Strategies, pursue corporate expansion including the creation of new businesses. We will also strive to reinforce the management foundation with our ongoing cost reduction initiatives, improve productivity through work reform, and seek improved brand value.
Fiscal year 2019 is the final year of the 7th Medium-term Business Plan. As such, based on the growth strategy aiming for a further leap forward, we will strengthen the collaboration with our group companies as well as companies outside the group, to enhance our abilities to offer comprehensive solutions for hardware, software and services, and as a united force, we will seek to achieve the business targets.
