Since the day of our founding in 1964, we have consistently provided unique technologies, products and services as a company that brings innovation with “light.” We have sought to do this by unraveling the functions and applications of light across a broad range of wavelengths—from ultraviolet, to visible, to infrared light, and others—and giving them form. Over the years, we have created a host of world-first products that have gone on to achieve leading market shares internationally, most notably in fields such as industrial processes, visual imaging, life sciences, and photonics solutions.
The potential of light still today has yet to be fully explored, and Ushio strongly believes that there is much more that light can do. Determined to embody the thinking and the ideal implied in the corporate slogan “Applying Light to Life” that we developed based on our management philosophy, we will contribute to realizing a future and a culture beyond imagining. At the same time, we will sincerely commit to ESG management and will work harder than ever before to achieve sustainable growth and improve corporate value.

Your continued support will be vital to our success going forward.

Takabumi Asahi, President and Chief Executive Officer
