Message from our President

 

Greetings,

Aisin Technical Center of America (ATC-A) was founded on the necessity to establish strategic product development capability, localization and reinforcement for the Americas.  We have been an independent entity within the Aisin Group since July 2008. ATC-A’s goal is to lead the product development activities in the American market. 

Currently it is said that automotive industry is to be entering “a-once-a-century era of dramatic change”. To survive, thrive and continue to grow in the change, ATC-A will keep on finding the new value and give it shape to propose our customers by walking together with them.

We have taken on more local engineering responsibilities and now manage the complete product lifecycle, thus making us a more nimble operation able to better engage and serve our customers. As a result, we will reach our 2020 Vision to be technically independent and self-sufficient. The solid foundation built by the achievement of our 2020 Vision will aid in our pursuit towards our future Vision.

Our ambitious goals toward our future vision includes developing unique products that meet our customers’ needs for today and in the future. This enormous pursuit is only possible through a global team and a harmonious effort. ATC-A collaborates with our global partners, but more importantly, we have assembled here a deep knowledge and skills base, and our team members represent a strong, local foundation.

Aisin Group's ultimate goal is to contribute to the enrichment of human life, for our associates by providing a work environment that offers various development opportunities and initiatives so that they can leave a positive legacy; for our customers through the offering of innovative, world class quality product line that delivers ever increasing value; and for our local communities by promoting, sponsoring and participating in various socially responsible activities.

In our brief history as an independent corporate citizen, ATC-A has fostered strong ties with our neighbors and local communities and will keep on further developing these relationships.

On behalf of all our associates here at ATC-A, thank you for your interest in our company.

Masato Shimei
