The identity of the Toyota Boshoku group

The Toyota Boshoku group has consistently focused on HITOZUKURI and MONOZUKURI from the customer’s perspective, based on the concept that “human resources development is at the heart of manufacturing.” In addition, taking into account the nature of our products, i.e. that people have direct physical contact with them, we will continue to provide “comfort value” through advanced R&D based on manufacturing that considers people, connects with them, and makes them feel an affection for our products.
