[Business description]
Structure maintenance and management needs have recently been growing. Our company is engaged in general surveying and also in surveying existing structures to meet these needs. We developed crack measurement system "KUMONOS", which is capable of measuring structural cracks and other damages from a distant location. We also provide quick, accurate measurement services using a 3D laser scanner system, which is capable of acquiring the shape of an environment as a large quantity of points. We have begun activities for KUMONOS sales and measurement services not only in Japan but also overseas.

Surveying and Measurement

[Strength of products/technologies]
We were the first surveying company to employ a 3D laser scanner. We established a technique and know-how for high-precision measurement and analysis through approximately 500 projects. 
Our "KUMONOS" and "Baum Station" make it possible to remotely measure the objects which were not measurable. We can remotely measure crack shape and width using KUMONOS, and the center of cylindrical and spherical object using Baum Station. KUMONOS is widely used for infrastructures and building. Baum Station and its application system are now useful for pile driving in construction sites.  

[Representative's message]
Developing new products imposes a great managerial burden on SMEs, and is very risky in overseas business expansion. Collaboration with major companies and support by public organs are indispensable for solving these problems. Our company is engaged in a niche business, but we have many excellent products and technologies that have been proven in Japan and abroad. We have thoroughly established quick information sharing within the company and we are confident about quick decision-making. We aim to provide optimal solutions meeting various needs, and to be a unique company selected by customers in Japan and abroad.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have staff in the sales department and the international business department to handle inquiries from new customers in Japan and abroad. Staff in the technical department will handle technical inquiries and directly visit customers as required for explanations and demonstrations about technical details. The president will directly oversee support for new customers including information collection and management. We will support every customer sincerely and carefully.
