Kikukawa Kogyo Co., Ltd.
Designing, manufacturing, and constructing of metal interior and exterior materials
We are a building material manufacturer, established in 1933. We have been fabricating metal materials for more than 80 years. We are expanding into manufacturing environmentally friendly products such as photovoltaic materials in addition to our existing lines of metal building materials and designing and implementing metal interior and exterior finish work. Our “New Partnership: Development Project of Extremely Low Distortion Laser Welding Technology for Thin Metal Plate Building Materials” was certified by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. Our newly developed product is a device which draws 3D curves. We have employed single-mode fiber laser welding technology to meet the demands for high-value added stainless steel thin plate 3D assembly. We have also commercialized a technology capable of making complicated shaped products with low distortion and at low cost.
