FY2017 marks the start of a new Medium-term Corporate Policy. It is the final medium term business plan (mid-term plan) of the three incremental plans we started in FY2010 with a focus on where we want the KYB Group to be in FY2020.The KYB Group is working together under the slogan “A Global KYB窶任hallenge and Innovation.”

Based on the spirit of creative development that has been passed down from the founder, Shiro Kayaba, KYB Corporation has offered a variety of products with hydraulic technology at their core since our foundation in 1935.
In addition, we have continued to grow worldwide as a manufacturer of hydraulic equipment, backed by the gracious understanding and support of our stakeholders. Our products support the lives of people throughout the world today, providing safety, peace of mind, and comfort.

Looking back on the KYB Group’s performance in FY2017, we exceeded the previous year's results, with our performance driven by a favorable construction machinery market.
In FY2018, the second year of the 2017 Medium-term Business Plan (2017 mid-term plan), we will accomplish structural reforms and provide clear guidance to stabilize the revenue base, leading to continuous growth. We will also strive to achieve the plan’s targets while maintaining safety and quality management as the core of the KYB Group.

The automobile industry in particular is entering an era of a major shift. Looking toward the future, KYB is determined to demonstrate its presence as an industry leader by advancing technology and introducing high-value-added products to the market in line with the latest trends and developments.

I sincerely ask you, our shareholders and investors, for your continued support of the KYB Group.
“Our Precision, Your Advantage” KYB
