Contribution to Society
Yokogawa was founded on September 1, 1915, and started out with just four people. They were eager young minds, and ready to blaze a trail on a totally new frontier ─ the establishment of Japan's measurement industry. Our founder, Tamisuke Yokogawa, encouraged his young colleagues, saying, "You don't need to worry about profits. Just learn and improve our technology. You must make products that earn us the respect of our customers." This is still who we are today.
Our five core values are the human connections which bring the people of Yokogawa together and define who we are. We know the true importance of human connection: "I am because we are".
