Terumo was founded in 1921 with the aim of producing of high-quality thermometers in Japan, to secure an important foundation of public health there. Since then, we have worked to rapidly bring medical settings the advanced products they need including products for use in cardiothoracic surgery, interventional procedures and transfusion medicine; the company also manufactures a broad array of syringe and hypodermic needle products for hospital and physician office use, based on our unchanging group mission of "Contributing to Society through Healthcare." Because of our strong desire to contribute to the advancement of healthcare—not only in Japan, but throughout the world—we have taken on the challenges of a variety of clinical environment to now do business in over 160 countries and regions.

In 2021, Terumo will celebrate the 100th anniversary of its founding. To keep providing products and services of value to medical settings for the next 100 years, we will further enhance our overall Group strengths, beyond the boundaries of businesses, regions, and functions.
