This vision embodies the company’s determination to continue to solve challenges of medical settings amid major paradigm shifts. Terumo will shift focus from “product-centered perspectives” to “customer-centered perspectives” and create valuable solutions together with medical professionals and business partners based on quality, technological capabilities and the innovation brewing backbone that Terumo has cultivated over the years.
