    Koito Manufacturing

Just over a century ago, Koito was founded to build railway lamps; today it’s still a supplier of lighting, now mostly for cars (the largest headlight-maker in the world with customers ranging from Toyota and Nissan, to GM and Volkswagen), airplanes, and ships. Under Otake, CEO since 2007, Koito has been riding the LED boom, and since the global recession of 2008-09, the company has delivered seven consecutive years of steadily brighter revenues and profits.
