DENSO recently announced that Atsuhiko “Art” Shimmura will be the new president of DENSO Manufacturing Tennessee (DMTN), in Maryville, Tenn.
Shimmura succeeds Masahiko “Mack” Hattori, who has been DMTN’s president since 2004. Hattori helped helm a new 214,000-square-foot plant that began production in October. Hattori will continue his career at DENSO Corporation, DENSO’s headquarters in Kariya, Aichi prefecture, Japan.
Shimmura began his career with DENSO after graduating from Japan’s University of Nagoya with a degree in business administration. He has worked in human resources and business planning and was instrumental in helping DENSO research Maryville, Tenn., as a manufacturing location in 1988, according to the company. Most recently, he served as general manager of DENSO Corporation’s Electronics Systems Business Planning Center. This is Shimmura’s second assignment at DMTN. He worked as human resources coordinator at DMTN from 1989-1995.
“Credibility is a key to all DENSO activities, and our associates have established a reputation for the highest-quality products that our customers recognize and value,” says Shimmura. “It is my goal to continue to grow and strengthen that reputation.”
