Our commitment to quality and diversity

Akio Moriwaki, President and CEO

Our corporate philosophy is ‘To innovate, inspire and entertain’, and our vision is ‘To be a leader in making life richer through music technology’. To do that, we listen to our customers, our employees and the worldwide music community to help us achieve technological excellence.

Since 1994, we’ve designed DJ technology of the highest quality in the industry – products that inspire originality and artistry, and can withstand intense use in the harsh environments of clubs and festivals around the globe. We’re committed to ensuring all our future products achieve these levels of innovation and quality as our company grows.

In the same way there are various genres of music, there are also countless different styles of DJing. Diversity is the lifeblood of creativity in our industry and highly valued in our employees. To help us continue to be a leader in this fast-changing market, we want our employees to grow with the company and express their talent and creativity.

Commitment to diversity and the development and manufacture of high-quality products and services is in our DNA. With a united team behind us, we will continue to go ‘Beyond the Music’ – we invite you to join us and share in the enjoyment and excitement that a deeper, richer musical experience can bring.

History of Pioneer DJ

Corporate history

Business overview

Pioneer DJ has developed, built and sold DJ industry-leading DJ equipment since 1994.

Business overview

DJ and Club equipment business

For more than 20 years, our motto has been to 'surprise and inspire' our customers and we've had fantastic support from DJs, artists and clubs around the world to help us achieve this. In recent years, as more people have taken up DJing – either with the intention of eventually becoming professional or just to enjoy mixing with their friends – we've created products and services to help introduce them to the world of music creation. We're committed to continue innovating through our product development and design to satisfy our customers, both professional and amateur, and maintain the reputation of Pioneer DJ equipment as the industry standard.

Professional Audio equipment business

We draw on our experience in the DJ and club market to develop and design professional sound systems that deliver powerful, crystal-clear audio. Since 2013, famous venues around the globe – from nightclubs and restaurants to boats and football stadiums – have benefitted from Pioneer Pro Audio set-ups including our our GS-WAVE Series dance floor stacks, XY Series PA/monitor speakers, and XPRS Active Series.


Music production tool business

As well as industry-standard DJ products, we also create instruments and music production tools to inspire producers and artists and help enhance their work in the studio and their performances on the live stage. We're dedicated to designing first-rate products from professional samplers and synthesizers, to monitor speakers and headphones.

The KUVO community

In 2014, we launched KUVO; a social platform and community for clubs, DJs and dance music lovers. The KUVO app and website helps clubbers discover new music, DJs and venues, as well as share their passion with like-minded people.
