Hokuriku Seiki

We have contributed to the international community with small-scale hydropower generation units that apply our canning and sheet metal processing technologies.

We are mainly involved in the design and manufacture of large specialty industrial machinery, such as conveyors for installation between automotive presses, distribution conveyors, industrial plant facilities, and snow-removal equipment. We have actively adopted additional facilities and machinery over many years, and we carry out all operations ourselves, from design to can manufacturing, precision sheet-metal processing, electrical instrumentation, machinery manufacturing, and assembly processing. We are also involved in the small-scale hydropower generation business, which applies these technologies. We have installed our units in Japan at sewage treatment plants and in factory drainage channels, as well as at sites in the Philippines and Myanmar.


Other presentation

[Company strength]
We maintain an integrated system for in-house precision sheet-metal processing based on our stockpile of advanced manufacturing technology and rigorous quality management, from material selection to processing and assembly. In addition, we continually strive to expand our cutting-edge facilities and manufacture outstanding modern products with fast-paced technological innovation.

[Business description]
We design and manufacture industrial machinery, mainly large specialty machinery, equipment, and facilities on a made-to-order basis or through joint development with the client. Examples include conveyors for installation between automotive presses, distribution conveyors, various cranes, industrial plant facilities, small-scale hydropower generation units, various tanks and snow-removal equipment, as well as precision sheet-metal processing and facility and equipment maintenance.

Industrial machinery manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our strength lies in actively adopting additional facilities and machinery over many years and carrying out all operations ourselves, from design to can manufacturing, precision sheet-metal processing, electrical instrumentation, machinery manufacturing, and assembly processing. We also applied these technologies to start a small-scale hydropower generation business about ten years ago, and we now manufacture and sell the Power Archimedes small-scale hydropower generator.

[Representative's message]
In addition to expanding into new business fields, we also need to develop new products, technologies and services. Our company always takes on new challenges in the field of manufacturing and continually innovates for higher quality, lower cost, and faster delivery. In addition, we have been engaged in R&D in the small-scale hydropower generation business for the past ten years, and we are determined to further our development in this area and provide more people with a secure energy supply.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
In addition to our main plant, we have established branch offices in Tokyo and Omi, Niigata Prefecture, forming a system to handle requests from across the country. We have even delivered snow-removal equipment to companies in Hokkaido. Furthermore, we have installed small-scale hydropower generators in Japan and in the Philippines, and we have completed a survey in Myanmar and are now at the planning stage. We have plans to expand this business to Nepal and Bhutan as well. We received a certificate of appreciation from the Prime Minister of Mongolia in 2010 and from the Philippines Department of Energy in 2014.

[Market share/Ranking]
We have about 90% of the domestic market for sub-50-kW small-scale hydropower generators.
