From its start, Kyocera valued creativity. Rather than copying others, we competed with our own technologies. We gladly took orders that others had refused, and made the products through determined efforts. In this manner, we developed and accumulated our own technologies, one after another.
For example, R&D for multilayer semiconductor packages, which triggered Kyocera's major growth, received the Okochi Memorial Grand Prize for Production as well as Japan's Minister of Science and Technology Award.
Our strong sense of mission to achieve our goals made us strive to innovate daily and expand our technological expertise. The accumulation of such daily efforts led to impressive results.
