The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Yazaki page on 2 August 2016, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

Yazaki Corporation is a global automotive parts supplier with a focus on wire harnesses, instruments and components such as connectors and terminals. The company's origin and headquarters are in Japan, but in 2011, roughly 90% of its employees are outside the home country.

Yazaki ranks among the largest worldwide automotive suppliers, ranked 10th by the industry journal Automotive News in 2013.

The company's product lineup includes electrical cables, meter and auto instruments, gas equipment, air-conditioning, and solar-powered systems. As a first tier supplier, Yazaki sells chiefly to auto makers, and, to a lesser extent, electric power, gas, and general construction companies. Yazaki is among the top 100 companies receiving the most US patents.

With "A Corporation in Step with the World" and "A Corporation Needed by Society" as their corporate policy, Yazaki is committed to being environment-friendly in every aspect of their business. Yazaki has developed and produced a long line of eco-friendly and energy saving products, inventing the world's first solar thermal powered air conditioning system in 1974, and the world's first wood biomass energy air conditioning system in 2008.

The Yazaki Group is headquartered in the Mita-Kokusai Building (三田国際ビル Mita Kokusai Biru) in Mita, in Minato, Tokyo, Japan. The company has its European headquarters in Cologne, Germany and the North American headquarters in Canton, Michigan.
