Apple CEO Allen Weisberg, COO Scott Avery, and engineer Jesse Weisberg visited Mitsubishi from Oct. 9-13 at the invitation of Mitsubishi officials.
Mitsubishi Electric US, the American division of Mitsubishi’s global operation, has for decades supplied the cutting-edge digital imaging and printing technologies that power Apple’s popular line of Face Place Photo Booths.
“Mitsubishi has always been a wonderful partner for Apple Industries,” said Weisberg. “Their imaging products and printing technology provide a fundamental component of Apple’s success. In addition, we have always had the deepest respect for Mitsubishi and its executives. We look forward to continuing and building on our relationship.”
“This visit definitely strengthened our alliance with Mitsubishi,” said Avery. “Our friends at Mitsubishi really rolled out the red carpet for us and it was an honor to consult with them and learn from them. Going forward, we will work together even more closely as development partners.”
Hosted by Mitsubishi Electric USA VP & GM Akihiko “Spike” Odakura and Regional Sales Manager-Eastern USA Art Pushkin, Weisberg and Avery consulted with the engineers and designers who are responsible for Mitsubishi’s award-winning products and technologies, including those at the Mitsubishi Electric Visual and Merchandising Group. The Apple team also enjoyed an educational tour of a number of Japanese arcades and FECs.
In all, said the Apple executives, their visit to Japan provided an inspiring kickoff for the next page in the Apple-Mitsubishi relationship. “Our varied knowledge, perspectives, experience, and expertise make us smarter and better when we combine our thinking and work together,” said Weisberg. “We are confident that the amusements industry will see more great things from Apple and Mitsubishi in the future!”
