Yasuhiro Ogura President

 Looking back on 2016, it was a tumultuous year not just in the automobile industry but also in political and economic fields. One of the major issues that any global company like us needs to pay attention to is the exchange rate. At the end of fiscal year March 2016, major companies such as automakers and electronical manufactures concluded their results to be favorable although the yen hit below 100 against the US dollar following the Brexit news which jolted markets. To manage global businesses, diplomatic issues and the balance of power in international relations need to be closely monitored.
 We are grateful to announce we have sold over 400 million automobile air conditioning clutches in our history. Our sales forecast is to reach 50 billion yen in 2017. Other goals include expanding sales for brand new customers and removing the barrier between our production and engineering departments which will foster better communication. Our flexible "mono-zukuri" (craftsmanship) spirit will help us generate more business. For Overseas operations, Ogura Clutch India PVT. Ltd. started production last year, and a new facility in Changxing, China was just completed which will help us maximize our production capacity.
 Every time we confront major changes, there will be more opportunities for us to challenge ourselves and improve. We continuously strive to focus on our motto, "mono-zukuri" (craftsmanship) with high quality. Thank you for your continued support.
