Since its inception in 1948, when the world's first fish finder was commercialized, FURUNO has been responding to the needs of the maritime industry through developing various types of navigation and communications equipment. "Contributing to the society by creating new values" is what we consider as our role in the society and this spirit is regarded as the most important value to be borne by all of our employees and is clearly stated in our management principles. "SPC & I" embodies the basis upon which we create new values. By "Integrating" our knowledge, experience and know-how derived from our business activities together with our three technical core competencies "Sensing", "Processing" and "Communication", we shall strive to continually provide solutions that are of value to our customers on a globe scale. Our fields of business have extended from our main business field of the maritime industry to medical, as well as, ICT industries. It is our mission in our business activities to continually contribute to the society by "achieving better safety and peace of mind to bring about an environmentally friendly society", and we shall continue to strive to achieve that end. We respectfully appreciate your thorough understanding and support.
