In the half-century since our foundation in November 1963, Tokyo Electron has repeatedly revolutionized technology in our rapidly changing world, continuing to grow together with the times.
In 2013 when we reached the 50th year since our foundation, in view of the next generation and changes in the business environment, we have refined our Corporate Philosophy, which specifies the purpose of our existence and our mission in society. We have also revised the Management Policies that were established at the start of TEL.
Tokyo Electron's Corporate Principles are comprised of four elements that together detail our mission as a company and identify the values and behaviors necessary to fulfill our goals.
The Corporate Principles sit atop the Corporate Philosophy and Management Policies, indicating the basic way of thinking that forms the foundation for corporate activities.
