We are a parts manufacturer that contributes to reducing the weight of automobiles.

We manufacture automotive parts. We make use of the experience and know-how we have accumulated since our foundation in 1952 to develop and manufacture chassis parts that realize reduced weight and cost for automobiles. We provide nearly 100% of the parts for suspensions and rear underbodies for Mazda cars sold in Japan and abroad. We have engaged in joint research projects with Mazda, as well as Hiroshima University and the Western Industrial Technology Center of Hiroshima Prefecture. We also design and manufacture molds, dies, and assembly jigs.

[Company strength]
We have actively taken on challenges and realized new technologies and methodologies in order to meet various customer needs. Our newly acquired technologies even enhance our strengths in metal processing, which helps to expand our business for new products. We provide high-quality automotive parts with short delivery times and reduced costs. This is done by making the most of our capability to develop suspension parts and manufacture molds, dies, and assembly tools.

[Business description]
We have been developing and manufacturing automotive parts mainly with metal processing since our foundation in 1952. We are highly skilled professionals in the industry, and we satisfy a wide range of needs by making use of our wealth of experience. We flexibly respond to new requirements for the environment and globalization, and continue to keep evolve as a 21st-century global supplier with our creativity and speedy services.

[Strength of products/technologies]
We develop optimal structures for chassis parts. We take pride in our excellent development of lightweight torsion beams with reduced costs. The conventional structure involves an intermediate beam with thick sheet metal, which is responsible for most of the weight of a torsion beam. We succeeded in reducing the weight by changing this to a crushed pipe structure. We also developed a methodology to regulate residual stress and achieved cost reduction.
Weight reduction: From 7.4 kg to 5.8 kg for the new structure, thus achieving a 20% weight reduction.
Cost reduction: The conventional process involves liquid sealing, to heating, to cooling, to descaling. The new process involves pressing only. This achieves a 20% reduction in the manufacturing cost.

[Representative's message]
The trend of local production and local purchasing has become increasingly common in the automotive industry. We are fully committed to satisfying the expectation of customers who are further promoting overseas production. We do this through our overseas subsidiaries and by investment in management resources. We will even strive to enhance our product strength and manufacturing technology in Japan for our success in overseas expansion. We provide products that contribute to our customers' growth in overseas markets and production.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have a point of contact for overseas business with sales employees who are fluent in English and Chinese as well as four engineering employees to cover technical needs. We are aware of the need to further enhance global human resources. We have been working to develop more human resources who can be intermediaries with international customers for product development, production engineering, and sales. Our goal is to be able to provide the same quality, cost, and delivery time as we do in Japan. We also invite employees from our overseas subsidiaries for training to teach them our Japanese way of doing business, and have them take this knowledge back home with them.

[Market share/Ranking]
We provide nearly 100% of the parts for Mazda suspensions and rear underbody parts in Japan and internationally.
