Our DENSO associates in Dublin, Ohio got to enjoy a free lunchtime yoga session led by a fitness instructor, all thanks to the City of Dublin FitBiz program!
We’re committed to the communities in which we work. DENSO was named the Dublin City Schools Business of the Month for March. Pictured is Bryan Starr, senior manager from Dublin, Ohio, accepting the award.
The Dublin City Schools Board of Education honors one local business partner a month during the school year. Businesses receive this designation for their contributions to a Dublin, Ohio school, support group, or the district at large.
For the 14th consecutive year, DENSO was at the North American International Auto Show in January, and this year, our technology, company leaders and recruiting events all focused on the same thing: how we adapt to the changing automotive industry.
DENSO’s Bill Foy, senior vice president of Engineering, spoke with Automotive News about the future of DENSO and transportation:
“We are retooling our whole strategic vision as a company,” Foy said. “Hardware remains very important for a vehicle, but we’re also moving to services [that enhance mobility], which is a whole different mindset for us as a company. Second, we used to be a company that did everything internally. Now, we are looking for partners beyond what we can do today. So, we can begin to create value for the future. And we used to be very Japan-centric. Now we are very global.
Beyond DENSO’s products, Foy said, the company is working on changing the mindset of employees. “How do we get the passion out of people, the maximum value and having them working on things that excite them?”
Congratulations to Siddharth Dasgupta on placing first in the 2017 Technical Presentation Development contest. Each year, engineers in Southfield, MI hone their presentation skills by showcasing their projects in front of a panel of judges for best overall presentation and insight into problem-solving, product innovation and efficiency. Second place was a tie between Tyryn Crow and Alec Bergweiler.
Did you know DENSO featured a line of robots at CES in 2017? DENSO’s COBOTTA robots showed CES guests what future, day-to-day life could be like if people and robots collaborated more. For instance, one of our robots acted as a “Barista-bot” that brewed and served coffee to our DENSO booth visitors on the spot!
A few other companies also showcased their own Barista-bots at CES. Wondering how DENSO’s robot barista fared against Bosch and Aubo? Click here to find out which bot made the best cup of joe.
