Company Overview & Philosophy
- To listen to people’s voices and create functions.
- To become a company that leaves a lasting impression on people’s memories.
- To deliver a fulfilling time.
We are not “inventors”.
We are not a company that turns 0 into 1,
but rather a company that turns 1 into 10.
For 45 years since the company was founded,
we have continued to listen to the “voices” of everyone who supports us.
Creating something that has never existed before by inspiration is a wonderful thing, but we at Azuma listen to the small voices of everyday life and propose “manufacturing that makes tomorrow a little better than today” to society to create a beautiful future.
Our thoughts on the logo
An “Azumaya” is a resting area without walls supported by four pillars. Because it has no walls, the Azumaya is well-ventilated and embraces the many “thoughts” and “voices” of those around it.
Azuma Co., Ltd. is a company that is always close to the consumer, focusing on the smallest of problems and hoping to help as many people lead a “better tomorrow than today” as possible.
We designed the new Azuma logo to resemble such an “Azumaya,” based on the idea that this company, supported by its four pillars, can create a “moment for people to take a break and rest”.
We believe that the four pillars that support the Azumaya are our users, partners, members, and ourselves.
Azuma is founded on the support of ourselves and all the people around us who are involved in what we do.

Message from the President
Inheritance and growth of thoughts
Although the situation was very different than it was today, I’ve heard that the period when our founder, Yoshinori Hirao, founded Azuma Co., Ltd., was also a very turbulent time. Azuma was born from the idea of providing consumer-friendly products at affordable prices by means of home appliances to solve people’s “small problems” in their daily lives.
The origin of the company name “Azuma” is not so clear now, but when I took over from Mr. Hirao, I decided to reevaluate various things with the employees to breathe new life into the company.
Although the times are different, we are still living in a confusing era with various social issues, just as we did when Mr. Hirao founded the company.
This is why I truly believe that Azuma Co., Ltd. can fully demonstrate its strength of “having feelings and consideration for others”.
I strongly feel that simply “offering inexpensive products” is not enough to meet the expectations and excitement of consumers.
In order to solve the problems of consumers in this new generation, we have begun to reexamine our own work style, attitude, mindset, and workplace environment, and to improve and build an environment that will enable us to become a company that enriches people’s lives.
As part of this effort, we have started a system in which board members from outside the company are invited to participate in product development, and to use the feedback from customers gathered internally to develop our products.
We are fully committed to listening to our customers’ feedback and providing them with the support they need to make sure they are well taken care of even after they make a purchase.
We took the time to formulate the company’s meaning of existence and goals in words that are easy to understand. What is important is not words such as “purpose,” “mission,” “vision,” or “values,” but rather understanding what they mean and how we (as people and as a company) lead our lives as members of society.
The important thing is our thoughts.
It is my hope that Azuma will continue to be a company that empathizes and grows together with the people around it.
We are committed to solving the problems of our users, partners, staff, and ourselves, and hope help as many people lead a “better tomorrow than today” as possible.
