Message

Pioneer Corporation commemorates the 80th anniversary of its foundation on January 1, 2018.

We would like to express our deepest gratitude for the loyalty and support of our many customers and other persons. With their kind support, it has been able to continue business for eighty years since its foundation in 1938.

In 1937, Nozomu Matsumoto, the founder of Pioneer Corporation, successfully developed Japan’s first Hi-Fi dynamic speaker, which became the base for the modern Hi-Fi speaker. In 1938, he established Fukuin Shokai Denki Seisakusho, predecessor of Pioneer Corporation.

Under the corporate philosophy “Move the Heart and Touch the Soul,” which describes the spirit of the founding, the “pioneer spirit,” which the company name signifies, has been inherited as the firm belief in delivering a lot of the world’s first products and services globally.

Currently, Pioneer focuses on the car electronics business and will further pursue entertainment, which is our forte, and integrate information on vehicle, driver and passenger with various information services provided through optimal interfaces in order to become a leading company in “Comprehensive Infotainment” that creates comfort, excitement, reliability and safety in-vehicle.

We are developing“3D-LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensors,” “maps for autonomous driving,” and their combination, a “data ecosystem,” as a promising car-related business which utilizes our strengths. Contributing to development of the mobility society, we aim to become an “essential company” toward the realization of autonomous driving.

We will continue to deliver deep impressions to every single customer by pursuing “sound”,“vision” and “information.”

January 2018
