The history of my own with the OS group and challenges for the future with the OS group.

OSM CO.,LTD.
Managing Director


Yoshio KANNAN

It’s been 29 years since I joined this company in April, 1995. I belonged to the Sales team. However, the local sales offices had difficulties with the division of labor, the work processes were not organized or divided. So, my duty was not only for sales but the entire processes from the sales to the completion of installation at the place. I studied about products by actually touching and using them, and feel the same way as the customer how the products were used, and that experience was the starting point of my carrier today.
After a while, I moved office to office in Japan for sales and product plannings. In 2008, my field of action moved to China, where the remarkable economic growth was showing.
After returning to Japan, I worked as a project manager for the launch of the company’s core system and was involved in sales, front office, middle office, and back office work.
I am currently working for OS group’s own product planning, development, and manufacturing company, OSM CO., LTD. where I am involved in making our customers satisfied with our products.

The history of my own with the OS group and challenges in the OS group.


My challenges were not comparable, everything was impressive to me, but if I should select one of them, I would choose the experience in China. I couldn’t speak Chinese at all but I strived for the new field. Looking back the time, the Beijing Olympics and Shanghai World Expo were being held in China where the full of life and energy met. I miss the days when I used to think about “How” I could manage the Chinese local subsidiary, and “How” I could face up the Chinese economy with significant growth. Whether I was sleeping or awake, the “How” was always in my mind.
I also studied Chinese by myself because I wanted to communicate with Chinese colleagues directly. I remember how happy I was when daily conversations in Chinese come out naturally and smoothly.

My thoughts for the future ~ My future vision with the OS group ~


70 years since establishment, the OS group has run through the Video and Audio industry. We have started the new business of power generation and storage since 2010, which we believe the growing business, the world focuses on SDGs and decarbonization, and therefore, we, OSM CO., LTD. planned, developed and finally launched “TerraSerde”. We will contribute to communities’ safe and secure with our products.

OS group progresses toward the centennial. What would you believe the OS group be in 30 years?


In the past, we dreamed to celebrate our big success with the world’s highest-grade wine, “Romanée-Conti”. This is our future vision in 30 years from now, that the OS group expands our business all over the world, such as the North/South America, EU and Asia, whoever one of the sister companies is closed at night, the other one is open in the morning on the same day, the OS group is working 24hrs all over the world. I believe that the vision will actually happen before celebrating the 100 years anniversary. I hope for the 100 years Anniversary will be held in the North/South America with the “Romanée-Conti”. I will be retired the company at the age limit but would like to attend the 100 years anniversary.
