Hitachi Global Storage Technologies was founded in 2003 and was formed as a result of the strategic combination of IBM and Hitachi's storage technology businesses. The company’s vision is to enable users to fully engage in the digital lifestyle by providing access to large amounts of storage capacity in formats suitable for the office, on the road and in the home. We provide a customer-focused and full-service approach to solutions for the hard disk drive marketplace. In doing so, we also focus on environmental responsibility, from power-efficient designs to conserving natural resources during the manufacturing and shipping processes to reuse and recycling of our products.
Our corporate statement "Inspire the Next" is a declaration of our vow that the Hitachi brand will continue to meet the expectations of our customers and society in this age of information, knowledge and the empowered consumer. This statement embodies Hitachi's commitment to continue to inspire coming generations with the latest products, systems and services, for a more vibrant, environmentally sound society. So, as Hitachi celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2010, we intend on being the catalyst for a changing society, we commit to boldly facing whatever new challenges the times bring us: whatever comes "Next."
