What are the unique features of FDK CORPORATION?
President & CEO
Whenever I get this question, I always answer that “FDK is a company seeking
to create products which take advantage of unique material technologies
developed by a dedicated research and development team focused on innovation.”
Founded in 1950, FDK started from the manufacture and sales of manganese
dry batteries. From that time, various experiments with battery materials
were conducted, and from the expertise gained in the related materials,
it was decided that FDK would entered the ferrite business. The company
expanded from the development of ferrite materials to electronic devices
such as power transformers. Now, our products are used by customers in
various fields such as lighting equipment, computers, smart phones, communications
equipment and automotive applications. With our battery business, FDK offers
alkaline batteries, specialized lithium batteries used in fire alarms as
well as high durability nickel-metal hydride batteries, which can be used
repeatedly with rapid charging. FDK continues to invest in the research
and development of battery materials. Our batteries are found in many life
scenes, from industrial sites to household applications. FDK also engages
in the areas of development and manufacturing of lithium ion capacitor
as well as power storage systems which combine the battery and electronic
circuitry know-how gained from our research.
As electricity is an essential energy in our lives, energy management,
how to create it, store it and use it wisely, are on-going challenges in
our society. FDK will continue to provide technologies and products in
our quest to support the ultimate solutions to these challenges.
FDK will strive to pull the infinite potential power from materials while adapting to the ever-changing business environment. By bringing together the technologies of the group and providing reliable, safe and valuable products to customers, FDK seeks to contribute in “various manners to society as an energy management manufacturer”.
