Contributing to Society through Healthcare
Terumo was founded in 1921 with the aim of producing of high-quality thermometers in Japan, to secure an important foundation of public health there. Under the group mission of "Contributing to Society through Healthcare," Terumo has evolved along with medical settings to now do business in over 160 countries of the world.
In addition to providing a stable supply of high-quality products and services as a medical device manufacturer, we strive to offer solutions for the multitude of issues facing medicine, to reducing patient burden, improve healthcare safety, prevent infections, and pursue greater medical cost efficiency.
Healthcare needs are diversifying with changes including aging populations in developed nations, which are contrasted by rapid economic growth in emerging nations. In addition, the evolution of scientific technologies like IoT, AI, robotics, and regenerative medicine are revolutionizing both healthcare and the industry that supports it.
To keep contributing as global medical settings change second-to-second, Terumo will leverage its comprehensive group strengths across businesses, regions, and functions to become a "Global Corporation with Unique Excellence."
Terumo Group instituted a new Group Identity in April 2019. This includes Core Values that are shared by every Terumo associate throughout the world, and a Terumo Group Code of Conduct, which sets the highest ethical and behavioral standards across the group.
As each of our associates conducts business activities according to this enhanced Group Identity, Terumo will further strive to bring value to patients, medical professionals, and society at large.
We ask for your continued understanding and support.
