Ikeya Kogyo Co. Ltd.

We have developed a series of architectural hardware, etc., which enhances the earthquake resistance of contemporary wooden houses. 

We design, manufacture, and sell architectural hardware and design and manufacture automobile parts and other precision parts. We developed architectural hardware that combines an automobile steel plate, special viscoelastic media, and a special spring. This damping hardware product has acquired technological assessment by the Japan Building Disaster Prevention Association. Our architectural hardware X2 series and Galcon series have enhanced the earthquake resistance and the vibration control functions of contemporary wooden houses. They have been highly evaluated by customers who wish to live in high-safety residences.

[Company strength]
Our company acquires needs in advance, and takes on the challenge of technical development! We continuously pursue innovation and creativity.
We continue to develop architectural hardware that enhances the earthquake resistance of contemporary wooden houses. We do this by sincerely listening to the customer’s needs and making use of the technology we accumulated in automobile parts manufacturing.
Our X2 and Galcon architectural hardware series have enhanced the earthquake resistance and vibration control functions of contemporary wooden houses. They have been highly evaluated by customers who wish to live in high-safety residences.
We expect to maintain an integrated system from marketing to development, design, manufacturing, and sales in order to meet our customers’ requests. 


[Business description]
We design, manufacture, and sell architectural hardware and design and manufacture automobile parts and other precision parts. We started to develop architectural hardware in addition to designing and manufacturing precision automobile parts 10 years ago at the request of a construction maker. In 2009 we developed architectural hardware that combines an automobile steel plate, special viscoelastic media, and a special spring. This damping hardware product has acquired technological assessment by the Japan Building Disaster Prevention Association (DPA-Housing Technology-32).

[Industry]
Architectural hardware and automobile parts manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Main features of the Galcon series

1. Architectural hardware that realizes high-performance vibration control and earthquake resistance. 
2. Bearing walls can be strengthened (calculated as 0.26 kN per wall) by installation at an opening portion that is not regarded as a bearing wall in the structural calculations. Large windows and doors can be installed without sacrificing earthquake resistance performance, and a sunny living space can be realized.
3. Large windows and doors ensure the passage of water in a tsunami, thus preventing the collapse of the house due to water pressure.
4. Exchange and maintenance are not required because silicone elastic material is used for the vibration absorption, unlike the hydraulic cylinder type.
5. Employing the abovementioned structures for Galcon results in it being very inexpensive compared with the conventional hydraulic cylinder type and other types of equipment.


[Representative's message]
Our company understands that “a good residence” means a space where the residents can feel relaxed, happy, and peaceful based on the shelter function that protects the family from disasters. We carry out activities to contribute to the local community based on this concept. We now receive an increasing number of inquiries about Galcon from many places in Japan and overseas. We are promoting market expansion to respond to these requests from many people.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our sales division develops domestic sales of Galcon and marketing for expanding markets, such as participation in exhibitions. We used the expert-dispatch system prepared by the Hamakita Society of Commerce and Industry, legal-aid service by lawyers, etc., for our transactions with New Zealand and domestic sales agent contracts. We are further strengthening our sales system and manufacturing system according to future market expansion.

[Market share/Ranking]
We do not measure our market share. We have an extensive record of deliveries in Shizuoka Prefecture of products to be used for wooden houses. We are now expanding our sales nationwide.
