Striving to be a 100-Year Group Enterprise
I am Yugo Horii, and I was appointed Representative Director and Chief Executive Officer in June, 2022.
Since our founding in 1947, we have continued to provide car-related products and services amidst rapid motorization in Japan, with the mission of creating a rich and healthy automotive society by always offering our customers the best solutions for their car lifestyles.
In response to the ever-advancing technology and diversifying needs of our customers, we have continued to provide safety and peace of mind when it comes to cars, and we have also continuously taken on the challenge of entering new business areas to bolster the enjoyment and convenience of our customers’ car lifestyles.
The automotive industry is currently undergoing a major, once-in-a-century transformation due to climate change issues and technological innovations such as CASE*. As a result, society, cars, and people's lives in general are expected to undergo greater, more rapid changes going forward.
Despite these circumstances, we will continue to provide safety and peace of mind to our customers, and we will once again, as we did at the time of our company’s founding, transform into a corporate group with a strong enterprising spirit, while we work to create new values without being bound by existing frameworks, and to strive to achieve sustainable growth and increase our corporate value.
The AUTOBACS Chain management mission is "To create a rich and healthy automotive society by always offering our customers the best solutions for their car lifestyles." This expresses our desire to constantly progress our business model through relentless efforts. This also allows us to continue to provide many kinds of values, along with safety and peace of mind, to our customers and local communities. Under our 2050 Vision - Creating Our Future Together, we aim to become a 100-Year group enterprise that is indispensable to society.
