Phiaro corporation

Our company is a manufacturer that supports automobile development through its integrated production system, covering from design to manufacturing prototype vehicles.

Our company was founded in 1939. We are specialized in supporting automobile development. We use the technologies we have accumulated over the years, state-of-the-art facilities, and specialized experts to support overall development for both domestic and overseas automakers. We usually directly deal with Japanese automakers. We are also taking on new roles without limiting our role to being a development manufacturer. These include joint development of new materials as well as marketing research on advanced materials and new technologies. We also act as a development think-tank.

The scale of our staff and equipment are close to that of an automaker’s development division.

[Representative's message]
Our only overseas site is on the West Coast of the US, but we are also considering an expansion to Asia. Last year we conducted research on operating in China with the help of SME Support Japan (F/S Support Program). We have technology partnerships with engineering companies in Europe to implement joint projects with automakers. We are working hard to aim for further technological innovation and to give feedback to R&D operations. This includes other industries such as household appliances, medical care, construction, aerospace, and railways in addition to in the field of automobiles and motorcycles. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our US subsidiary responds to inquiries from North America, and our representative office (agent) responds to inquiries from China. Inquiries from Southeast Asia are answered by our partner trading company. Our representative office also responds to inquiries from Europe.
