Hitachi Astemo, Ltd. has discovered inappropriate conduct regarding some of the brake components manufactured at its Yamanashi Plant (Minami-Alps City, Yamanashi Prefecture) and suspension components manufactured at its Fukushima Plant (Koori Town, Date District, Fukushima Prefecture), such as periodic tests not being conducted.

We sincerely apologize for the significant inconvenience we may have caused our customers and concerned parties.

To ensure such incidents do not occur again and to fully regain trust of our partners and customers, our company established a special investigation committee through an external legal counsel to investigate the facts and root causes of the matter independently and objectively. In addition, the committee is fundamentally reevaluating our quality assurance system and enhancing our compliance framework.
