Rigaku's philosophy

Since its birth in 1951, Rigaku has upheld the corporate mission of its founders to “contribute to the enhancement of humanity through the development of science and technology”, working with the motto to “Value our customers, value our people, and value our technology.”

Over the past 70+ years, Rigaku has grown to become a global company, with customers and Rigaku people spread around the world, and also having a more diverse base of shareholders. With this in mind, we have developed a set of value statements (“Rigaku Vision”) to guide Rigaku through the coming years.
