Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (TOKYO: 6503) announced today that it will commence operation of its new training center “SOLAÉ place” on June 1. The center will be located at its Inazawa Works in Japan, the center of Mitsubishi Electric’s building-systems development and manufacturing activities. The center has been established to strengthen human resource development as the company further globalizes the sales, manufacturing, installation and maintenance functions of its building-systems business, including elevators and escalators.

The center will have several training rooms equipped with advanced IT systems, allowing diverse training scenarios. It will be used by personnel from throughout the Mitsubishi Electric group and its affiliates in Japan and abroad, from new hires to mid-career employees. The objective is to deepen their understanding of the company’s business policy of “safety and quality as top priority,” a key management principle of its building systems business. Training will be provided mainly for development and manufacturing staff. Training for senior executives will also be offered.

The new center will support Mitsubishi Electric’s existing global training network. Japanese expatriates based outside Japan and local staffers at overseas affiliates will be among those using the center for training, helping to equip group-wide employees with superior knowledge and skills that can be leveraged to further strengthen Mitsubishi Electric’s position as the world’s top brand for elevators and escalators.

Mitsubishi Electric is upgrading its building systems business to maximize the safety and usability of its products and services worldwide. To achieve its fiscal 2020 consolidated sales target of 720 billion yen, 50 percent of which is to be generated outside Japan, the company aims to capture demand for new installations overseas and accelerate its elevator and escalator renewal business in Japan. As part of its drive to achieve these objectives, Mitsubishi Electric is establishing training facilities in each of its overseas bases, in order to align and enhance the business operations of its domestic and overseas affiliates and strengthen the development of its human resources.
