Message from the President
Hiroshi Murao,
Managing Executive Officer
President and Chief Executive Officer

Since commencing the manufacture of rolling stock in 1906, Kawasaki Group has consistently used leading-edge technology to help develop and modernize rolling stock as a leading Japanese manufacturer.

It has been 115 years on October 1, 2021 since we started our railway car business, and we are starting a new chapter as “Kawasaki Railcar Manufacturing Co., Ltd.”

Being the environmentally friendly public transportation system that is close to our daily lives, railroad systems can contribute to the carbon neutral society and are expected to grow at a relatively stable rate globally owing to the demand for railroad infrastructure, etc. accompanying the economic growth of Asian countries.

Our split from Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. was decided to ensure autonomous business administration and to react to collaboration with the affiliated companies in the industry agilely and flexibly in such circumstances. As Kawasaki Railcar Manufacturing Co., Ltd., we will create and deliver new customer values with the railroad mobility and explore new business models.

As a member of the Kawasaki Heavy Industries Group, we are determined to share our missions among all employees and create and deliver safe and dependable railroad mobility solutions to enhance Kawasaki brand value and contribute to all stakeholders.

For these endeavors, I would like to sincerely request your continued support.
