OMRON has been selected as one of the Derwent Top 100 Global Innovators 2020 by Clarivate Analytics for the fourth consecutive year since 2016.
Clarivate Analytics selects the Derwent Top 100 Global Innovators 2020 based on proprietary intellectual property and patent data. Candidates for this award are evaluated by analysis based on Clarivate Analytics’ database in terms of four main criteria: volume, success, globalization, and influence. Among these criteria, OMRON was rated particularly high for globalization, which is determined by the number of basic patents obtained in the four major world markets (U.S., Europe, Japan, and China).
In 1959, our founder Kazuma Tateishi established our corporate motto, "To improve lives and contribute to a better society." True to this motto as our spiritual cornerstone, we have since produced numerous innovations and pursued new challenges by making continued efforts to develop better social infrastructures. Going forward, OMRON remains committed to innovation.
