SHIMOTEC Co., Ltd.

We have the top market share in Japan for lightweight hinges, and we are also extending the market for our magnetic and thermal products.

Our company is a development proposal type manufacturer. We mainly handle hinge products, magnetic products, and thermal products. Our main products are hinges for OA equipment, which have the top domestic Japanese market share. We also provide magnetic field analysis solutions with Japan’s greatest stock of rare-earth magnets, and thermal modules or their assemblies. We are extending our business of hinges with magnetic sensors, speed sensors, and radiation and heater units by merging the technologies of our three fields. We have an organization that gives priority to design and production technologies and manufacturing and quality management processes to establish an integrated system.

[Company strength]
Our company possesses development and design technologies for three fields (mechanical, magnetic, and thermal) and also an integrated system from design and review to mass production. We present an optimal size, quality, and price by using analysis and endurance testing for streamlining. We support conducting deliveries in each field (both in Japan and abroad), so the time required until the launch of mass production can be reduced. Our advantages include our capability to provide high-performance products with short lead times and also our support for trial manufacturing and small- to medium-volume production.

[Business description]
Our company is a development proposal type manufacturer. We mainly handle hinge products, magnetic (magnet) products, and thermal products. We have an organization for these three fields that gives priority to design and production technologies and manufacturing and quality management processes to establish an integrated system. We do business with customers in various industrial categories in Japan and abroad. They include manufacturers of OA equipment, industrial equipment, medical equipment, food and beverages, and daily necessities. We have both domestic Japanese and overseas production sites to quickly meet trial manufacturing and production requests.

[Industry]
Information equipment parts design, development, and manufacturing 

[Strength of products/technologies]
Mechanical field: Our hinges for OA equipment have the top market share in Japan.
Magnetic field: We offer magnetic field analysis solutions with Japan’s greatest stock of rare-earth magnets.
Thermal field: We develop, produce, and provide total thermal modules that cool heating bodies efficiently, or as assemblies of these products.
We meet market needs by merging the technologies of our three fields, such as hinges with magnetic sensors, speed sensors, and radiation and heater units.


[Representative's message]
Our action policy is "Create." We think it is important to take up development, creation, and implementation challenges with our three strong technologies.
(1) Expansion of mechanical, magnetic, and thermal technologies.
(2) Analysis and technical advice.
(3) Quick trial manufacturing and a rich stock of products.
(4) Discrete sales and module sales.
(5) Integrated system in Japan and abroad.
We aim to be a company with capitalization of 10 billion yen with these five items as key features. We constructed a factory in Thailand in 2014 and will build a new factory in China in 2015 to extend our mass production and sales sites. We will continue to raise the standards of technology and quality in Japan and abroad.


[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our marketing division surveys both new and existing customers and makes aggressive approaches to disseminate technologies that we possess. Our liaison staff make inquiries to our in-house technical staff for quick solutions to technical consulting issues. We negotiate with engineers as required. We have a system for customer support in English and Chinese. The number of Japanese staff members working at overseas sites is increasing. In FY2014 we implemented an internship system for students from abroad as a new action, we are proactively promoting the employment of global human resources.

[Market share/Ranking]
Lightweight hinges and magnet catches: We have a market share of about 90% among Japanese printer and copier manufacturers.
