Thomson Reuters 2015 Top 100 Global Innovators Awards Ceremony

On January 4, 2016, Nitto Denko Corporation (Headquarters: Osaka; President, CEO & COO: Hideo Takasaki; “Nitto”, hereafter) held the 2015 Top 100 Global Innovators Awards Ceremony at their research and development headquarters in Ibaraki, Japan. Mr. Nagao, Thomson Reuters’ Managing Director, Asia-Pacific, graciously accepted our invitation to present the award.

In November 2015, Nitto was selected by Thomson Reuters Corporation (Headquarters: New York, USA; Japan Office: Minato-ku, Tokyo), as one of the world’s most innovative corporations / research institutions, a distinction for which the company has been selected for five consecutive years. The awards ceremony, the fifth at Nitto, was held at our new facility, “inovas,” a place designed to integrate R&D and professional growth scheduled to open this spring.
At the awards ceremony, Mr. Nagao commented, “We have selected the top 100 companies and institutions in the world based on the assessment criteria of the global nature of the company, and the number of patents, success rates, and influence of the patents in terms of citations. The fact that Nitto has been recognized with this award for five consecutive years is a testament to Nitto’s technological strength and innovation. I would like to express my heartfelt congratulations to all of the technicians and engineers who contributed.” Nitto’s President Takasaki commented, “I am proud that our company has received this honor for five consecutive years. Until now, we have integrated our business strategy with our intellectual property strategy to grow our business. In recent years, we have been building an infrastructure for creating innovation with our customers, and we will continue to work together as a team to ensure that we continue to be worthy of an award like this in the future.”

Going forward, Nitto intends to continue enhancing its intellectual property value, practicing “Innovation for Customers” and dedicating itself to maximizing corporate value.
