The changes will help DENSO:

  • Achieve its Long-term Policy 2030, which includes the concept of "Bringing hope for the future for our plants, society and all people."

  • Accomplish "Reborn 21," an internal plan to revolutionize operations to provide new value to society.

  • Expand its business domains to mobility, manufacturing and society-focused business.

  • Enhance the pursuit of its "green" (environmentally friendly) and "peace of mind" (safer world for all) values.

DENSO's updates include:

I. Organizational Changes

  1. In order to realize carbon neutrality, DENSO will provide value to customers with a total-system perspective. To help achieve this, the company will establish two new departments, the Electrified Energy Management System Engineering Dept. and the Electrified Energy Management System Business Planning Dept. They will oversee the development and planning of all business across the Powertrain Systems Business Group, Electrification Systems Business Group and Thermal Systems Business Group.

  2. To create new systems that solve social issues beyond the scope of mobility, DENSO will combine its strengths in sensors and semiconductors by establishing the Advanced Devices Business Group. It will encompass the Mechatronics Systems Business Unit, Sensing Systems Business Unit, and Semiconductor Business Unit.

  3. DENSO will create the New Business Development Dept. to generate growth scenarios in non-mobility businesses and study the organization of the new business groups.

  4. In October, DENSO announced it reorganized its North America Engineering and R&D divisions to better integrate the company's electrification, thermal and safety systems. Reorienting its product groups around Green Technology and Mobility Systems will strengthen DENSO's ability to meet customers' evolving needs and advances its efforts to power society's shift to green, safe and seamless mobility.
