Message from the Managing Director
The Hitachi Group was founded in 1910 by Mr. Namihei Odaira, a Japanese electrical engineer who was
determined to produce original products and technologies in Japan. Over the years, Hitachi has continuously
delivered products and services that meet society’s demands and desires across a wide range of industries. While
more than 100 years have passed, Mr. Odaira’s drive to innovate still permeates Hitachi today, and the company
can count many industry-changing products and technologies amongst its achievements.
In recent years, we have taken a stand to reinvigorate this feature of our organisation through proactively integrating
the vast array of our operational and information technologies to help collaborative creation with our customers,
solutions that will leave a lasting impact on the well-being of the communities in which we operate.
With more than eight Hitachi Group Companies represented across Australia and New Zealand, bonded by our
commitment to Social Innovation and introducing new technologies in sectors such as mining, healthcare and
agriculture while establishing a Research & Development presence in the region, we continue to demonstrate our
desire to make a difference in the social well-being of the people.
