Human Resources and Organization Change for Business Innovation and DX

EBARA Corporation formulated a long-term vision, E-Vision2030, as well as medium-term management plan, E-Plan2022 in February 2020 to refine management and enhance the quality.

To achieve the goal, EBARA reforms its organizational structure and human resources, while promoting digital transformation (DX) to optimize the global business management of the EBARA Group, enhance the quality of products, and improve manufacturing processes using IoT.

  1. Business Innovation
    The Business Innovation Department and Global Procurement and SCM Strategy Department are established under the Operations Innovation Division*1 effective on April 1st. Toward the goals of E-Plan 2022, the mission is to develop strategies and systems in order to reconstruct the EBARA Group’s global business operations, optimize the procurement system, and reduce costs.
  2. Digital Transformation (DX)
    By a resolution of the Board of Directors at their meeting on March 27th, Hiroyuki Kowase, General Manager of the Information and Communication System Division, was appointed as Executive Officer. Kowase has extensive experience in digital transformation including ERP, which will be introduced company-wide.
  3. Diversity
    To acquire highly skilled experts necessary to execute the strategies mentioned above, EBARA hires, cultivates and promotes talented human resources, regardless of age or nationalities. For EBARA, Kowase is the first officer recruited externally as an excellent professional personnel. In the meanwhile, Michael Lordi, who is responsible for Compressors and Turbines Business, was also appointed an Executive Officer. Mr. Lordi is EBARA’s first ever non-Japanese officer.


EBARA will continue to promote DX, business innovation, and diversity to enhance the corporate value.
