DENSO in Europe
Continuous expansion throughout Europe
Since the Dutch already introduced the Japanese society to European culture in the 17th century, the first representative office was established in Amsterdam, The Netherlands In 1972. One year later the regional headquarters Nippondenso Europe (now DENSO International Europe) was established in Weesp, The Netherlands. Since then DENSO Europe grew and has sales companies and manufacturing plants all over Europe.

DENSO in Czech Republic
Quality as an integral part.
At DENSO Manufacturing Czech, the Quality Department laboratory went through three important milestones. It first saw the light of the day in 2002 when it was erected as a part of the new plant. At that time the laboratory served the needs of mass production only. Then in 2011/2012 both in-house needs and customer requirements resulted in first reconstruction. And the last milestone is the reconstruction that we finished in 2016 - the opening of the new laboratory that has consolidated series and pre-series laboratories. In the other Czech DENSO facilities quality too is an integral part of all activities.
Tradition of engineering
Design Center looks at all the angles
The Czech Republic has a long tradition of having a strong engineering industry. The task of the design center is to design and engineer components to the specified customer and internal requirements on quality, manufacturability, cost and delivery time. Each of our four DENSO facilities in the Czech Republic delivers on these requirements.
3,000 employees at 4 locations
Training at the core of development
The primary function of a Training Center is mainly to provide our employees with adequate technical training in various positions, thus bolstering the performance of each section with the aim of getting as close to the set benchmark as possible. This is one of the reasons why the Training Center at DENSO Manufacturing Czech and other DENSO facilities in the Czech Republic is equipped with state-of-the-art technologies, which are used here for educational purposes.
