Almost 80 years ago in 1940, a group led by businessman Mr. Uneo Kobayashi founded the Kobayasi Institute of Physical Research, an organization aimed at research on fundamental and applied physics. The institute eventually narrowed its focus of research to acoustics. Kobayasi-riken Co., Ltd. was founded in 1944 to commercialize the results of the institute’s research.This was the root of our company, Rion.Our world currently faces various social issues, such as climate change on an unprecedented scale and epidemics of infectious diseases.What can we do and where should we focus our efforts in these times of turmoil? When I contemplate them, I nd myself falling back on the belief held by our founder, Mr. Uneo Kobayashi.It’s said Mr. Kobayashi had originally aspired to become a Buddhist monk.He wanted to pray for the peace and well-being of peopleand to help those with problems and those in need.But Mr. Kobayashi eventually came to believe that the power of science and technology was essential to realizing his aspirations.His belief culminated in the founding of the Kobayasi Institute of Physical Research.Decades have passed since then, but Rion’s vision remains steadfast.Every day, we ask ourselves what the current needs of the people are.Harnessing the power of science and technology, the staff of Rion continue listening to the voices of the people with sincere interest and concern.We make life better and contribute to building a healthy society.President & CEOKenichi ShimizuThe Spirit of RionWe want to help peopleand support our society.That’s why we work endlessly to perfect our technologies.
