On January 1, 2019, Alps Electric Co., Ltd. and Alpine Electronics, Inc. integrated their businesses and started out afresh as Alps Alpine Co., Ltd.
Alps Alpine will steadily bring about synergies by drawing on the two companies' advantages in core devices, system design and software development.
In the automotive industry, a once-in-a-century major transformation is currently underway, as demonstrated by the "CASE" trends — connected cars, autonomous driving, sharing and services, and electric vehicles.
Meanwhile, a wide variety of business models involving diverse customers are expected to emerge in EHI markets — energy, healthcare and industry.
This time of turbulent change and transition sets the scene as Alps Alpine moves to become an "Innovative T-shaped Company" by combining the strengths of both companies, specifically the vertical "I" of the Alps, furthering possibilities with core devices to enhance product competitiveness, and the horizontal "I" of Alpine, integrating a broad range of devices and technologies as systems. As an Innovative T-shaped Company, we will endeavor to deliver new value to customers, meeting diverse needs with a lineup of electronic components to systems for not only the automotive market, but also mobile devices and consumer electronics, as well as new sectors such as energy, healthcare and industry.
