President Kenichi Wakabayashi

This is to inform you that I have been appointed President and CEO of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machine Tool Co., Ltd., effective today, succeeding Mr. Keiichiro Iwasaki.

Introducing myself, I have spent my career mainly in the production department. During this time, I strongly believed that quality products come out from a first class production shop, so I carried out various measures to improve the process of machine tool production. One of the challenges was to improve the productivity of the equipment, and during this reform, I was able to see the machine from the customer’s point of view, which I think is one of my strengths. Meanwhile, a first class production shop cannot be achieved by the production department alone, and I believe that the optimization of the entire process, including sales, engineering and customer support, is essential.

Based on our business motto “Customer First & Quality First", I will continue improving our machine quality by optimizing the entire process, so that we can improve the relationship with our customers.

We have a long, proud history of providing the best machines and solutions to various customers and industrial segments. I will lead our company to continue providing attractive new products and service, increase our global presence and expand our business to have our machines used and loved by more customers around the world.

I sincerely appreciate your support thus far, and would like to ask for your continuous support and feedback in the future as well.

I am looking forward to working with you and maintaining a continued mutual successful relationship for many years

Yours sincerely,

Kenichi WakabayashiPresident and CEO
Representative director
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machine Tool Co., Ltd.
