SANYO Electric Group, by developing unique technologies and offering excellent products and sincere services, seeks to become a corporation that is loved and trusted by people around the world. The Group seeks to become “as indispensable as the Sun” for the people of the world.
SANYO’s founder, the late Toshio Iue, gave the company its name. “SANYO” means “three oceans”—specifically, the Pacific, Atlantic and Indian oceans: in other words, the entire world. The founder had the earnest ambition to conduct business throughout the world, maximizing the company’s three core assets: excellent human resources, superior technologies and first-class service. Thus the company name also implies its business territory and policy.
The founder once stated his principle in this way: “As a corporation, we seek to be like the sun, which shines upon all alike, regardless of race, creed, religion or difference in wealth.” As is expressed in his statement, SANYO Electric Group has always sought to be essential to people everywhere in the world, like the sun, that shines upon all.
