GS Yuasa announces leadership change: Mr Abe appointed as new President, Mr Murao as Chairman

GS Yuasa Battery Europe Ltd., European leader for industrial and vehicle batteries, and part of Japanese based global battery manufacturer GS Yuasa, announces a leadership transition within its parent company. Mr Takashi Abe has assumed the role of President and Representative Director of GS Yuasa Corporation, succeeding Mr Osamu Murao, who has taken on the role of Chairman and Director.

Mr Abe, previously a Director at GS Yuasa, brings a wealth of experience and a visionary approach to his new role. Mr Murao, who has served as President and Representative Director, and opened GS Yuasa’s state-of-the-art European Headquarters last September, has been instrumental in guiding GS Yuasa through a period of significant achievements and expansion.

In his first message as President of GS Yuasa, Mr. Abe said: “Throughout its more than 100-year history, GS Yuasa has responded to the demands of the times and contributed to the development of society through Innovation and Growth in battery and power supply system technologies. We have been able to continue to grow because we have earned the trust of our customers by working diligently to address their challenges and by continuing to provide added value, such as safety through our high-performance, high-quality products and field services.

The spirit of innovation and challenge that the founders of our parent companies, Japan Storage Battery Co., Ltd. and Yuasa Corporation cherished have remained unchanged to this day, and has been carried on in our corporate philosophy of “Innovation and Growth”. In order to adapt to rapidly changing times, the entire GS Yuasa group must practice “Innovation and Growth” and clarify GS Yuasa’s existence in society.

We believe that our battery and power supply system technology is one of the indispensable technologies for realizing a sustainable society, including decarbonisation. We aim to become an energy management company by providing advanced technologies for devices and their associated applications necessary for the development of mobility and social infrastructure. In addition, by providing battery technology in all directions, we intend to realize a sustainable society and growth of GS Yuasa together.

We hope that all our stakeholders will continue to support us as we strive for Innovation and Growth so that we can continue to be a company that will be needed for the next 100 years.”
