    Hideaki Yamamoto

    To continue to sustainably help customers and society by providing machine tools, it is necessary for Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Machine Tool Co., Ltd. to transform itself into a company that can continuously change and grow while having the capability of responding to recent technological innovations and rapid changes in the social environment, etc. In the world of business, the conventional trade of "tangibles" has been gradually taken over by that of "intangibles." With a view to sustainable change and growth, our company promotes digital transformation (DX) and offers, in relation to around machine tools, "manufacturing solutions" that enable us to coexist, live and create together with our customers, thereby shifting the business focus to so-called "intangibles." This report presents the details.
