How manufacturers can accelerate growth in the 'new normal'

This year, 2021, is Mitsubishi Electric's 100th Anniversary, but that's not the only reason to celebrate. Despite all the restrictions the COVID pandemic has imposed on the global community we have just witnessed the awe-inspiring performances of the participants of the 2020 Olympic and Paralympics. Magic! Thank you to all the sportsmen and women who gave us such hope and motivation, but we should also not forget the manufacturing community whose own heroic efforts have risen them up to meet the challenges of the pandemic as well. One key lesson is that teamwork is as essential in business as it is in sports. Working together we can all create new value!
