◆ Comment by Mr. Tsuguo Ito, President of SDAC
We have added a new technical development hub in Vietnam. SANDEN Technical Center of Vietnam is established as one of the forms of our response to drastically changing automotive industry and pursuit of companywide reforms. By promoting global vertical specialization from this new technical center, we will reform our development process, develop engineering resources, and enhance our development capability toward business growth.
◆ Comment by Mr. Khan, Associate Dean of Vietnam National University
The establishment of SANDEN Technical Center of Vietnam is really significant. I have been waiting for this day since I heard the idea of global vertical specialization from Sanden. Vietnam is a treasure-house of resources, and Vietnam National University has a large enrollment of excellent students. I believe Sanden will be able to enhance its development capability by fully utilizing these advantages of Vietnam. I’m looking forward to ‘collaborative creation’ with Sanden in future years.
