Everything begins and ends with you

We have become an international company by staying true to the philosophy of our founder – what we do emanates from our own predisposition to cause a positive impact on the individual and society as a whole. We have not deviated from that idea, which gives meaning to everything we do. We’ve come a long way since we began life as a small ceramics company in Japan, but we retain the same mentality – learning, growing, getting better – as individuals, as a company, as a part of society.

    The bonds of human minds

    Human minds are said to be easily changeable. What our founder Dr. Kazuo Inamori discovered is that nothing is stronger than the human mind. Kyocera developed into what it is today because it based on the bonds of human minds. Our founder used his insights to create a unique philosophy that we use every day as a cornerstone of our business.
