An intercultural approach and international business activities form the basis of our company that regards itself not as a rigid structure but as a living organism. In a spirit of holistic thought and action, each employee plays an important part and accepts responsibility for the duties entrusted to him or her.
Changes for the Better

"Changes for the Better," means "always seeking something better and making changes accordingly." It also expresses Mitsubishi Electric's commitment to enhancing the quality of life in our society and contributing to an even better tomorrow.

The word "better" signifies the corporate stance of Mitsubishi Electric in its pursuit of continued improvement in all its operations.
