Corporate Principles

In the half-century since our foundation in November 1963, Tokyo Electron has repeatedly revolutionized technology in our change-filled world, continuing to grow together with the times.
As we reach the 50th year since our foundation, in view of the next generation and changes in the business environment, we have revised the Management Policies which were established at the start of TEL.
At the same time, we have newly defined the purpose of our existence and our mission in society as our Corporate Philosophy, and have put them in writing.

Tokyo Electron's Corporate Principles are comprised of four elements covering our mission as a company, the values we hold as important in achieving this, and specific ideal behaviors. The Corporate Principles sit atop the Corporate Philosophy and Management Policies, indicating the basic way of thinking that forms the foundation for corporate activities.
