SOUTHFIELD, Michigan – DENSO, the world’s second largest mobility supplier, is sponsoring a free general admission day at the Michigan Science Center (MiSci) in honor of Earth Day and DENSO’s long-time commitment to sustainability. The free admission day is on Saturday, April 20, 2019, from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. Pre-registration is required and available now at Mi-Sci.org.

DENSO launched its first environmental policy and action plan, coined ECO VISION, in 1997 to outline its global sustainability targets. The most recent version, ECO VISION 2025, aims to help resolve environmental and energy issues, and conduct eco-friendly business.

“As DENSO shapes the future of mobility, we’re also focused on ensuring our solutions help preserve our planet. Sustainability has been one of our core values since our founding. That’s why we’re excited to offer free admission to our community members and give them access to a place dedicated to inspiring all ages to discover, explore and appreciate science and our planet,” said Kenichiro Ito, senior executive officer for DENSO Corporation and chief executive officer of DENSO’s North American Headquarters.

MiSci’s free admission day includes access to more than 250 hands-on exhibits, live stage shows, the Smithsonian’s Spark!Lab, Kids Town gallery, STEM Playground, and Space gallery.

DENSO Honors its Japanese Heritage and Longtime U.S. Presence by Sponsoring National Cherry Blossom Festival

Southfield, Mich. (April 10, 2019)DENSO, the world’s second largest mobility supplier, is one of the Sakura Circle sponsors of the 2019 National Cherry Blossom Festival, an event that honors the relationship between Japan and the United States and takes place each spring in Washington, D.C. The sponsorship celebrates DENSO’s Japanese roots and commemorates its longstanding commitment to the U.S.

Cherry blossoms, known as sakura in Japan, symbolize new beginnings and a time of renewal. Since the flower’s lifespan only lasts a couple of weeks, the cherry blossom also reminds individuals how short-lived time on earth can be and why it’s important to make the most of the present. In Japan, the blooming of the cherry blossoms is celebrated in a custom called ohanami, a phrase meaning “watching blossoms,” and is a tradition that goes back thousands of years.

“As a global mobility supplier with a long history in Japan as well as the United States, we’re happy to promote an event that represents the friendship and collaboration between the two nations,” said Kenichiro Ito, senior executive officer for DENSO Corporation and chief executive officer of DENSO’s North American headquarters. “The National Cherry Blossom Festival honors a beloved Japanese tradition, and we are proud to support the festivities.”

DENSO’s North American roots reach back to 1966 when the supplier opened its first sales office in Chicago. A year later, DENSO opened a Midwest sales office in Southfield, Michigan, and in 1985, the office was established as DENSO International America, Inc., DENSO’s North American headquarters. Today, DENSO employs 17,000+ employees in the United States across 13 states and 25 sites. The group continues to grow its presence across the country, most recently announcing the integration of ASMO North Carolina, Inc. and the opening of its Connected Services Pennsylvania Technical Center in Scranton.

The National Cherry Blossom Festival honors the gift of 3,000 cherry trees that Tokyo Mayor Yukio Ozaki made to Washington, D.C. in 1912. More than 1.5 million people gather in the American capital between mid-March and early April to celebrate the culture, art and tradition the festival commemorates. The event is free to the public.
