Tateishi Koubi Co., Ltd.
We have patented a combination of electronic paper and LED display lamps with disaster prevention data display functionality.
Our strength lies in our know-how regarding various kinds of signage production, which we have gained in 39 years of operation in the advertising business. We launched an LED-related business applying LED displays in 1990. This led to other lines of business such as electric signboards, edge light panels, LED display systems, and data delivery services (such as news). We obtained a patent for a disaster prevention data system in 2016. It is equipped with a disaster prevention data display lamp (electronic paper combined with LED), and text reading functionality. This disaster prevention data system was introduced by Minato Ward, Tokyo as a means to disseminate information to residents. A similar system was introduced on a footbridge in Funabashi City, Chiba Prefecture.
[Company strength] Our strength is the extensive know-how on a wide range of signage production that we have gained in 39 years of operation in the advertising business. Our company can manufacture various kinds of signage, from small door plates for hospitals to LED noticeboards on the street and in factories. We have a sales department for contacting customers, a planning department for visualizing requirements, and a design department for preparing drawings based on this visualization. These departments work closely with our information systems department (in charge of software development), specialized production and installation departments, and our general affairs department (application procedures for signage installation). This organizational framework we have established ensures that all processes (from order to delivery) are conducted in an integrated manner through close cooperation among our departments. [Business description] Our company designs and produces indoor and outdoor advertisements. We also offer related products and services, including printing services (such as plastic processing, acryl laser processing, and inkjet printing), storefront window marking, and vehicle marking. We launched a related business in 1990 by making use of LED displays. This led to our involvement with electric signboards, edge light panels, LED display systems, and data delivery services such as news. We also combined electronic paper with LED to create a disaster prevention information system that simultaneously provides a disaster prevention data display lamp and text reading functionality. This technology was patented in 2016. Our business can be described as information transmission in which we disseminate necessary information to people who need it. [Industry] Signage and advertising business [Strength of products/technologies] Demand for LED signage in addition to ordinary signage has been on the rise in recent years. This is due to its legibility and impact. Our company has been in the LED business for over ten years. We can apply our experience, past project track record, and know-how to offer comprehensive LED services including planning, design, manufacturing, installation, and maintenance. Many companies offer only a certain phase of these processes. Our company has the advantage of possessing all the technologies necessary for making made-to-order LED display systems, including machine design and electronic technology. [Representative's message] The number of foreign tourists in Japan is expected to increase leading up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. There are limits to what can be done with guide displays and resident support in local areas, and we believe that our digital signage will be a tool that tourists can count on. Our disaster prevention data system will be adopted in a wider range of areas because it addresses some of the most important issues for local municipalities. These include safe city planning and disaster prevention. We are reinforcing our marketing efforts so that this system will be widely adopted throughout Japan. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] We are gradually acquiring more customers in Hiroshima Prefecture (our base) and Okayama Prefecture, as well as in Tokyo. This is because we have employees stationed in major printing companies in Tokyo to cooperate as partners. We have also received introductions from partners of industry peers in other areas, so we can accept orders from many places in Japan. [Market share/Ranking] There seem to be many competing companies in Japan, but we think very few offer comprehensive support, such as application procedures for outdoor advertisement installation.
