On December 8, 2023, TOA Corporation (Headquarters: Kobe; President, CEO: TANIGUCHI Masahiro) held a signing ceremony for a comprehensive partnership agreement with Takarazuka City, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan at its R&D base “Knowledge Square.” The ceremony was attended by Ms. YAMAZAKI Harue, Mayor of Takarazuka City and Mr. TANIGUCHI Masahiro, President and CEO of TOA Corporation.
In conjunction with the conclusion of this agreement, TOA, as a member of the local community, will contribute to the sustainable growth of Takarazuka City and the improvement of municipal services. We will also aim to create new value through co-creation.
*Scheduled to be expanded going forward
TOA established a production plant in Takarazuka City back in 1962. Presently, our R&D base, "Knowledge Square," continues to thrive in the same area. It serves as a space for diverse individuals and information to converge, fostering co-creation and promptly responding to technological advancements and societal environmental changes. We aim to envision new market values and cultivate new cultures from a global perspective.
Moreover, TOA's products include the disaster prevention community-wide public address system "SUMIRE Disaster Prevention Speaker," adopted by the city. In March 2023, TOA contributed 3 million Japanese yen through the Regional Revitalization Support Tax System (Corporate Version of Hometown Tax Donation Program) to facilitate the purchase of musical instruments for the brass band clubs in all 12 municipal middle schools.
