TowerJazz: Leading Technology. Customer Partnership. Full Circle Value Creation.

TGS Japan was held in Tokyo on August 30, 2017 with over 180 people in attendance. The Intercontinental Hotel Tokyo Bay provided a beautiful environment for our customers and partners to network with each other and TowerJazz management.

Our event began with an inspiring talk by our CEO, Russell Ellwanger, on TowerJazz’s commitment to value creation for our customers, after which we shared the company’s specialty solutions serving the automotive, industrial, infrastructure, and imaging markets.
The day concluded with an overview of our global manufacturing capabilities and design enablement support tools.

This year’s TGS Japan was an amazing event, made possible by the support of our partners, customers, and guest speakers. Our TGS 2017 series continues with events in Seoul, Shanghai, and Newport Beach, Calif., USA. Please join us at the TGS nearest you!
