Supplier leads dialogue on social innovation

Hitachi Australia recently brought together 120 key customers and stakeholders in Perth for a social innovation forum. 
The forum, which was held in late March, was designed to stimulate discussion about ways to leverage the latest advances in transport, navigation and mining technologies to improve safety and efficiency while reducing operating costs. The forum also marked over 30 years of growth for Hitachi Australia.

“Hitachi’s social innovation business is bringing together information and infrastructure technologies to provide innovative solutions to society’s challenges,” Hitachi Australia managing director Hitoshi Ishihara explained. 

“It’s about integrating different technologies to satisfy the economic, social and environmental needs rather than addressing just one.

“[The forum] is an invitation to our customers to partner with us in creating a more liveable and sustainable world,” Ishihara added. “It’s about generating long term profitability through the integration of technology to drive responsible outcomes efficiently and in ways that maximise the human experience.”

Quality, integrity
Hitachi Ltd’s vice president and executive officer Kazuhiro Kurihara visited Australia to attend the forum.

“Hitachi has maintained a steady reputation for quality and integrity, and we have devoted ourselves to supporting and improving the quality of life in the countries we operate,” Kurihara said. “I can proudly say that we have and shall continue to make substantial contributions to the further advancement of Australia.”

Japan’s Consul-General in Perth, Koichi Funayama, also attended the forum. He said that Hitachi’s breakthrough transport and mining solutions were underpinned by state of the art systems that maximise performance and reduce risk. 

Funayama also pointed to Japan’s famous rail systems, including high speed trains, which have a world class operating rate, thanks to the underlying systems Hitachi developed to manage its performance.
