[Company strength]
Our company has been dedicated to developing heat treatment equipment for research since our establishment in 1982. Our infrared heating technology in particular is a unique technology that is not available from other companies. Our main products consist of infrared heating equipment. There are no similar products in Japan or abroad, and our products are widely used for research because of their high versatility. Our company is small but we have an environment for designing and manufacturing devices at the request of researchers in order to always provide new products.

[Business description]
We are an R&D company that develops, manufactures, and sells heat treatment equipment for new material research and testing. Our company has been developing many products in joint R&D since early after our establishment. Our partners include universities and R&D institutes, and we have been supported by new product development subsidies from the Tokyo Metropolitan Small and Medium Enterprise Support Center. Our main customers are private R&D departments, R&D corporations, and universities in Japan and abroad.

[Industry]
Physicochemical equipment manufacturing

[Representative's message]
We exhibit our products and technology twice a year at the annex exhibitions of the Japan Society of Applied Physics and the Japan Institute of Metals and Materials. We also exhibit our products and technology in surface and vacuum related academic conferences and international academic meetings held in Japan. We participated in the International Conference on Surface Science and Nanotechnology held in Barcelona, Spain in August 2015. We are now promoting market expansion with researchers as our targets. Our company acquired CE mark authorization necessary for exports to Europe. We are also expanding our market to Taiwan and Korea with the cooperation of local trading firms.



[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
There are no overseas products similar to the infrared heating equipment and other heat treatment equipment that we developed by making use of our unique technology. Our company was selected in 2008 for JETRO's program for uncovering and supporting export potential. We acquired CE mark authorization for exports to the EU with the support of the Overseas Expansion Technology Support and Subsidy Program of the Tokyo Metropolitan Small and Medium Enterprise Support Center. In 2013 our company established Japan Vacuum Instruments Ltd. in Liverpool, UK. We are now enlarging our sales channels by participating in exhibitions and putting ads in academic journals.
