Line Kougyou Co., Ltd.
We are willing to take on challenges, from various kinds of plant equipment and steel structures to a new breed of wooden architecture.
Our business has two pillars. One involves manufacturing, installation, and after-sales services for plant equipment, such as paint booths, drying furnaces, conveyors, and stirring devices. The other is the construction of safety equipment, steel stairs, and other steel structures. Our welding technology allows no leakage, and we offer proposals based on our extensive experience in the field. These are our company’s strengths. We have also developed a new type of wooden structure by combining wood with iron, to create a superior rigid wooden structure that requires no bearing walls. This reinforced structure that fuses and integrates laminated wood with ironware will help differentiate our company from our competitors.
[Company strength] Around 95% of our products are manufactured on a made-to-order basis. We have repeat orders in the plant field, where the product life cycle is as long as 10 to 15 years. We have expanded our operations to other fields on the basis of our initial manufacturing technology for paint plants, including other plants, construction, and civil engineering. A wide variety of engineers flexibly work together in our company to customize products according to customer needs. Welding is essential to these efforts. Our high-quality welding technology creates the added value of no leakage in our products. This is how we offer technological advantages to customers in various industries. [Business description] Our company handles plant systems. Our operations cover manufacturing, on-site installation, and after-sales services for paint booths, drying furnaces, dedicated automation equipment, canning tanks, special vehicle parts, hopper gates, various conveyors, and stirring devices. We also manufacture interior and exterior handrails, stainless steel fences, large gates, steel stairs, safety equipment, temporary forging facilities, ironwork, and exterior ornaments in our plant, and install them on-site. Our company has been dealing with iron for 30 years since our establishment, mainly through welding. We have done this by discovering the essence of various customer needs, engaging in consultations, and sincerely offering technology. [Industry] Steel structure construction and machinery manufacturing and installation [Strength of products/technologies] Our customers value our welding technology. They are also especially pleased with our ideas and proposals regarding their various needs, which are made on the basis of our extensive experience. We are fortunate that these customers tend to introduce us to their peers. In the course of our business we developed a new breed of wooden structure. This was done by combining iron with wood to create an entirely new rigid wooden structure that has never been seen before. We developed this product from the perspective of how we could fully apply our accumulated technology to iron fittings in order to derive further strength from wooden materials. We also plan to use an innovative bonding method through the use of a hydraulic press machine in our steel mill. This will allow us to realize unprecedented structural strength for differentiation of our company. [Representative's message] Many years have passed since the inception of our rigid wooden structure in 2009, and it is now starting to show results. In a structural strength test conducted in July 2015 this structure was proven to have overwhelming strength compared to the competition. We took this as a starting point and participated in a comprehensive construction fair to exchange opinions with over 300 visitors in three days. We greeted over 500 members of the Aichi Society of Architects and Building Engineers from the podium in October 2015. Before a visit to the Minister of Land, Infrastructure and Transport certification authority in November 2015, we focused on designing a new office building at our company. We also participated in the Japan SMEs Tech & Services exhibition (Chubu block) in December. We plan to make a presentation at an academic meeting in August 2016. This will be done under the guidance of Dr. Katsuhiko Ohara at the Wooden Architecture Studio, Gifu Academy of Forest Science and Culture. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Four selected staff members will take part in exhibitions to conduct research on market needs. They will share their knowledge at internal meetings to ensure that everyone is on the same page. [Awards and media coverage] [Awards] [Media] Chubu Keizai Shimbun, “Rigid Wooden Structure Found to Have the Same Strength as Iron Frames in an Open Test;” Chubu Keizai Shimbun, “Reinforced Laminated Wood.” [Authorization/Certification] We have three welders with JIS certification. [Joint research and development] Wooden Architecture Studio, Gifu Academy of Forest Science and Culture: Shear strength testing of the surface of a rigid structure with panels and posts. [Main Clients / Business History (domestic)] Customers in our core business: Toyota motor and other manufacturers (installation of auto parts paint lines), Shimizu, and others (installation of steel structures as civil engineering structures).Customers in our new lines of business: None.
