World-First Industrial Robots

In recent interview with Mr. Hiroshi Ogasawara, Yaskawa Electric Corporation’s president, he explains about the future of industrial robotics and his vision.

With our products, we aim to be number one, or the world’s first.  We don’t necessarily want to be number one at creating something that a million other people in the world are working on. It could be something just five people are working on, as long as we’re number one. If you do that, then you have more potential to expand.  That’s what we’ve always strived to do, since our company’s founding.
