“Seize the Future we see in front of us”
Following the retirement of founder Yoichi Kitayama from the role of President and Executive Director, I have been appointed to take over the leadership of AIR as Chief Executive Officer. I am committed to developing AIR to further its successful operation, aiming to earn the respect of society and our customers through our contributions.
AIR is in its 37th year of its foundation. We shall design unique and innovative solutions that only AIR can create, and continue to work with our customers to improve our deliverables so that we can truly call our products and services ‘No.1 & Only 1’.
We have set up a new company, AIR System Solution Co. Ltd, having separated the functions of one of our core business operations, Contract Development Business Division.
We shall leverage the strengths and agility of the new company and of the organization as a whole, and continue to strive forward to make our contribution to our customers and industry.
