Terumo was founded in 1921 to support fundamental public health by achieving the manufacture of quality thermometers in Japan. With our corporate mission of “Contributing to Society through Healthcare,” we have advanced since then along with healthcare to now do business in over 160 countries throughout the world.

In addition to providing a stable supply of the highest-quality products and services to patients and medical settings, we have strived to offer solutions for the multitude of issues facing medicine, through efforts including reducing the burden on patients, improving healthcare safety, preventing infections, and seeking greater medical cost efficiency.

Healthcare needs are diversifying in response to changes that include population aging in developed nations, contrasted by rapid economic growth in emerging nations.

Further, the evolution of scientific technology, including artificial intelligence, digitalization, robotics, and regenerative medicine, is revolutionizing both healthcare and the industry that supports it.

To continue our contribution to ever-changing medical settings globally, we will utilize the overall strengths of the Terumo Group toward creating new value for healthcare. In addition to product quality, we will also strive to provide "Total Quality," which includes the quality of supply and services as well.

As a global corporation with unique excellence, Terumo Group will achieve world-class quality to bring innovations of value to patients awaiting better healthcare throughout the world.

We ask for your continued understanding and support in this endeavor.
