[Company strength]
Our company plans and proposes new technologies and services that are available only from us. This is done by making use of the wealth of knowledge and know-how that we have accumulated through transactions with many customers in a wide range of industrial fields. We even propose mechanical designs or new functional parts that do not use our products depending on the customer's issues, which is very popular among various customers. We are devoted to improving and enriching production equipment and methods with the creation of an environment for producing excellent products as our theme. We have established a highly reliable and efficient production system. This has been done by integrating strict quality management with automatic assembly machines for bearings and one-way clutches and state-of-the-art production equipment supporting in-house resin part forming and machining.

[Business description]
Our company manufactures mechanical parts, with a focus on resin bearings. We were the first to overturn the concept of bearings as metal parts. We have been conducting R&D ever since, on the basis of the know-how that we have accumulated by manufacturing plastic bearings. We aim to enhance functions (sliding properties, safety, and sanitation) and reduce costs by shifting from existing products to plastic products. Mold manufacturing is one of the critical processes for plastic product manufacturing, and we do this process within the company. Our development system forbids cheap, inferior products. We conduct unique evaluations cultivated through our past experience and secure quality management by making the most of dedicated evaluation testers that we developed ourselves.

[Industry]
Mechanical part manufacturing (resin bearings, one-way clutches, limiters, rotary dampers, etc.)

[Strength of products/technologies]
We first developed our plastic bearings made of polyacetal resin in 1964, and have become highly appreciated around the world. Our family of products based on our unique technologies is used in the OA industry and various other industrial fields. We have various shapes and types of bearings ready to support a wide range of uses. Our company independently developed rotary dampers, which are small and low-priced, and also feature high torques. They exhibit excellent effects in uses that abhor noise and shock. We also manufacture various small parts.

[Representative's message]
Our development policy is to create value that is truly expected by customers and society. Conventional steel bearings have disadvantages of excessive quality in strength and high cost. Our plastic bearings were accepted by the market because they achieved appropriate quality and a low cost. We were able to win widespread trust in the industry by creating value that meets the needs of the times. We will continue with R&D under this policy and provide products that meet customer requests. We will further our efforts in 21st-century Monozukuri craftsmanship. We appreciate your patronage.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company's high-quality, high-functionality products are highly appreciated in Japan and also overseas. Companies are becoming active in overseas expansion alongside the recent progress of globalization. We will also promote overseas expansion more proactively in this context so as to supply parts. Our company newly opened a representative office in Germany to extend sales channels to the EU region. We also have sites in Hong Kong and China for attentive customer services.

[Market share/Ranking]
We have the top market share in Japan for plastic bearings. Our one-way clutches and rotary dampers are highly ranked in the industry).
