PLYMOUTH, MICH. – June 21, 2022 – Kyocera, the world leader in Fine Ceramics, announced today that it has been recognized with a Sustainability Leader Award from DENSO, a leading mobility supplier, at DENSO’s annual North America Business Partner Convention.
At the Suburban Collection Showplace outside Detroit, DENSO brought together more than 150 supplier representatives from across North America on May 25 to recognize 15 exceptional business partners.
“Kyocera is honored to support DENSO in our mutual commitment to make vehicles safer, smarter, environmentally cleaner, and more comfortable,” said Cynthia Ferrell, Kyocera International, Inc.’s vice president of Automotive, Display, Optical and Consumer Products. “This Sustainability Leader Award is especially meaningful to us coming from DENSO, a company that has won respect and admiration for its own sustainable business practices worldwide.”
DENSO’s Business Partner of the Year Awards are given to companies that are driven to advance mobility while demonstrating outstanding performance and a deep commitment to quality. Kyocera, which manufactures a wide range of automotive, electronic, and semiconductor components, was honored by DENSO specifically for delivering head-up displays (HUDs) ― digital devices that use high-brightness LCD technology to project data onto a vehicle’s windshield, so drivers can monitor vehicle speed and navigation while keeping eyes directly on the road ahead.
“Despite the challenges of the previous fiscal year, our supplier partners were with us every step of the way, helping our teams problem solve and deliver for our customers. We thank them,” said Mike Winkler, vice president of the North America Purchasing Group at DENSO. “Looking ahead, they’ll continue this and also support our pursuit of DENSO’s Two Great Causes: Green – achieving carbon neutrality by 2035 – and Peace of Mind – creating a safe and seamless world for all.”
