Almost 40 years have passed since
the start of operations in 1966 in the Northeast (Tohoku) Region
of Japan as a loudspeaker manufacturing factory of Pioneer Corporation.
From this modest beginning, Tohoku Pioneer has evolved to become
a major player in the car electronics field, the most demanding
of all audio fields. We have established a firm foothold
in the market of car electronics products due to our attention
to details from R&D to mass production of car stereos and
speakers. While manufacturing is based in Japan, we
have expanded our operations overseas to North America (Mexico)
and Asia (Thailand and China).
Thanks to our wide range of technical capabilities accumulated
over time, we have carved out our niche in such business fields
as factory automation (FA) systems, audio visual (AV) accessories,
precision components and molds. Further, we are now focusing
our resources on the development and production of a state-of-the-art
display device, organic light-emitting diode (OLED) displays,
to sow the seeds for a better future.
We believe that our duty is the ongoing pursuit of unrivaled
technologies, qualities and values by going back to our fundamentals
of Monozukuri - the manufacuring from initial concept to end
In order to achieve such goals, Tohoku Pioneer has met many
global standards. We were certified for ISO 9001 (the international
standard for quality management systems) in 1993 and QS-9000
(the quality system requirements developed by Ford, Chrysler
and General Motors, known for its more stringent requirements
than ISO 9001) in 1997. The QS-9000 certification was developed
into the more advanced "ISO/TS 16949:2002 Spirit" in 2003. We were also
certified for ISO 14001 (the international standard for environmental
management systems) in 1999.
In keeping with our company's motto "Dedication to Society,"
we take the "Pioneer Spirit" literally and aim high
for the future.
