In our whole life, I wonder how many encounters we have?
The encounters with your family, friends, teachers, colleagues, customers, and faithful spouse.
I think those encounters are not limited to people. We can also encounter the paintings, musics, sports, movies, beautiful views of nature, and other uncountable encounters which we have never expected ever before. Some of those encounters might change our life forever and ever.

I am really sure that there are manyfold impressed tales more than such encounters we have.

I am proud that Vanguard Systems Inc. has encountered and created the new inspirational technologies since its founding.
Through those experiences, we have launched many products to impress our customers.

The dream of mine has been to introduce new products and services which have been created by our unique innovative technologies, to the world.
To remember the dream forever, I named my company "Vanguard Systems".

Today, the incredible evolution is occurring on semiconductor and sensor technologies. Consequently, such evolution arises the innovation on the motor control technologies that are the business field of our company.
We are continuing our endeavor to enhance the development capabilities of products and services than ever.
We are going to evolve the motor control technologies to sophisticate such technologies as the "accurate and sensitive force control", "environment performance", "power saving", "network technology", and "robotics”, which have been requested from our society.

I would greatly appreciate for your expectation and continued support in the future. Vanguard Systems Inc.
