Yamashita Materials Corporation CIRCUITEC Company

We are a well-established, specialized FPC manufacturer. 

Our company has been specialized in manufacturing and selling flexible printed circuits (FPCs) since our establishment in 1965. We have an integrated production system for comprehensively managing all phases from design and manufacturing to procurement, mounting, and assembly for electronic parts and devices. We cater to a wide variety of requests from customers, including ultra-short production of single-sided FPCs, high-mix low-volume production, and mass production. We always have over 50 kinds of materials on hand to offer optimal solutions for customers and further expand our business.

[Company strength]
Our company is a specialized flexible printed circuit manufacturer that has been in the field for over 40 years. Our offerings cover a wide range of products, from R&D products to mass-produced goods. We obtained ISO 9001 (1995) and ISO 14001 (2000) certification, and built a system to maintain high quality and protect the environment. We also developed a BCP plan in 2007 as part of our risk management practice. The corporate culture we have established allows us to try new technology at any time, and actively work with material manufacturers to jointly develop new products. 

[Business description]
Our company has an integrated production system that covers design and manufacturing of flexible printed circuits (FPCs), as well as the procurement, mounting, and assembly of electronic parts and devices. This system makes it possible to operate a comprehensive management system that allows us to manufacture prototypes in a very short time (2 days at the shortest, for double-sided FPCs). We can also conduct small-lot and mass production, including high-mix low-volume production. We have our own FPC evaluation scheme (PWB lab), so the materials and printed circuits we develop are evaluated and tested in-house. Our organization is always ready to try, review, and adopt the latest materials. 

Electronic part and device manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
It is our standard practice to usually have more than 50 kinds of materials on hand. This allows us to propose optimal specifications and compositions according to customer specifications, applications, required functions, and usage. We can customize products in a short time for specifications such as low-loss properties suitable for high frequencies (GHz band and over) and wide-frequency electromagnetic shielding for specified uses. Our customization options also include prolonged heat resistance of over 150 °C and small diameter via holes of less than diameter 50 µm. We can quickly deliver general-purpose YFC (Yamashita Flat Cable) products with no initial cost, or make advanced type (with electromagnetic shielding and LVDS) derived models from YFC. 

[Representative's message]
From problem solving to problem discovery. We conduct our everyday business while always trying to acquire a wide breadth of knowledge so we can proactively identify and solve problems. We always ask about our value to society, what we can offer, how we can be useful, and what we can do to make people happy. We will continue our R&D efforts to stay in the front line in this field. We intend to deliver our highly satisfying products to domestic users in Japan and also to people around the world. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
An operation group (7 members) within the sales division is the designated contact for new customers. All inquiries are either answered on the spot or replied to within 24 hours by one of our 10 sales representatives. This applies whether it is a request for an estimate, an inquiry about a technical issue, or another matter. We may request to have a meeting with the customer if it is necessary to solve a problem. We opened a site on Alibaba for overseas companies in December 2014. We use this together with our own English website to cater to a wide range of needs. We have also established an overseas inquiry team (3 members) so that replies are made in English. 

[Market share/Ranking]
Our flexible printed circuits have a 2% share of the domestic Japanese market. (Source: statistical data published by Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI).)
