About Us

Message from the President

Our company was founded in April 1980 in Kyoto, Japan, as a venture company manufacturing opto-semiconductor devices. Since then, we have overcome many challenges to expand our locations from Kyoto to include sites in Tokyo, Hokkaido, and Silicon Valley, while strengthening our position in the market as a specialist opto-semiconductor device manufacturer. For this I express my heartfelt gratitude to all of KYOTO SEMICONDUCTOR’s customers and stakeholders.

Our opto-semiconductors are used in optical communication devices and photo devices for sensors for applications such as communications infrastructure, industrial equipment, medicine, security, and appliances. We predict demand will increase in a variety of fields, while the importance and technical complexity of these products will also grow. To respond to the latest needs of our customers, our development, production, and sales divisions are working together to manufacture products that take advantage of our high degree of specialization and proprietary technologies. I wish for us to further improve our specialization and proprietary technologies, and contribute to the realization of a richer future as a proposal-based business expert that works on development collaboratively with customers.

We have now changed our name from Kyosemi to KYOTO SEMICONDUCTOR, which was the original name of the company. With a commitment to our foundational ideal of expanding our business through our creativity and reliability, I promise that the reborn KYOTO SEMICONDUCTOR Co., Ltd. will make every effort to provide distinctive opto-semiconductor devices and services to meet the expectations of our customers and stakeholders.

Those of us at KYOTO SEMICONDUCTOR appreciate your understanding, and humbly ask for your continued support.
