A Message from CEO

2020 was a year where we continually felt tensions in our daily lives, as overseas locations went into lockdown and a state of emergency was declared in Japan due to the global spread of COVID-19 . At the same time, 2020 was also a year where we strove to enhance our production and logistics and explore new approaches to online sales and promotion activities. These enhancements enabled us to fulfill our mission of responsibility for the critical infrastructure that supports a digital society. Under these circumstances, the Allied Telesis Group, which maintains multiple plants overseas, is proud to provide customers with peace of mind and satisfaction through our product supply system, which allowed us to respond flexibly and swiftly even during this unprecedented situation.

In 2021, with support from governmental policies and measures to prevent infections, business digitization is expected to accelerate. Stable, easy-to-use communication environments are essential for establishing such digitization. On the other hand, companies and organizations have suffered untold amounts of cyber damage, underscoring the need to take all possible security measures to prepare for increasingly sophisticated cyber attacks.

Allied Telesis provides easy-to-use network infrastructure with excellent operation and maintenance control. We also help customers reduce total costs, producing state-of-the-art technologies combined with extensive experience and expertise cultivated over many years. We maintain a wide range of cyber security solutions and services to deliver safe communication environments to customers.

Amid the trend of rapid digitization, we are reminded of the important role our business plays. We continue to strive to develop technologies that provide high value-added solutions and services and help create a rich digital society.
