Global Suppliers Conference 2017 was held
We invited more than 400 executives of 222 important suppliers in 14 countries, and held the 5th Global Supplier's Conference (GSC) on April 20 and 21.
On the first day, on the concept of "Pursuing the unique style of YAMAHA", we explained about our policy and activities of Monozukuri that is uniquely YAMAHA from our representatives of each function including Mr. Yanagi. It was a very meaningful conference that we could share the visions and direction of collaborative activities between YAMAHA and suppliers.
On the next day, we held several tours on the concept of "Experience the unique style of YAMAHA", such as tour of our new Innovation Center, test ride of our products, and factory tour. And also we conducted "GSC Technical Exchange Meeting" at CP in the afternoon. There was a vigorous exchange of technical issues between overseas suppliers (21 companies) and 420 people from divisions of YAMAHA, such as development, manufacturing and procurement.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in each division who cooperated for GSC in planning, preparation and in event.
