OMRON's story began in 1933 with founder Kazuma Tateisi's development of a high-precision X-Ray Timer. Over the years, we have faced many challenges, often taking the trial-and-error approach to problem solving. This section briefly traces our history and notable innovations, beginning with the high-precision X-Ray Timer.
Besides innovating and developing new management techniques, Mr Tateisi was deeply committed to the arts and societal issues . It was his strong desire to serve society that inspired and paved the way forward for him. Together, his interests in the wider world informed his corporate philosophy. His knowledge, experiences, and beliefs drove him on to make new – even unimaginable – ideas a reality.
