Showa Co., Ltd.

We manufacture and sell titanium and other nonferrous metal products, as well as stainless steel products.

Our company is a titanium expert. We develop, manufacture, and sell products by making use of the characteristics of lightweight, corrosion-resistant titanium. We also manufacture and sell other nonferrous metal and stainless steel products. Our products range from nuts and bolts to large tower tanks for plants. We process titanium according to your needs. We also design and manufacture heat exchangers and electrodes by processing nonferrous metals. We have also acquired patents for our R&D achievements regarding titanium photocatalytic materials, lining plates, and dye-sensitized solar cell materials.


Other presentation

[Company strength]
We have been developing, manufacturing, and selling titanium products for over 40 years by making use of the lightweight, strong, corrosion-resistant characteristics of titanium. This is how we have been accumulating know-how about titanium materials and products manufactured by machining them. We are a small-scale organization, but we have sales, technical, manufacturing, and sales and development divisions. We manufacture titanium products from nuts and bolts to large tower tanks for plants. We can handle all inquiries about titanium from general pure titanium materials to advanced titanium materials manufactured using our patented in-house technologies. We have realized one-stop services for titanium products.

[Business description]
Our company is your source for titanium. We sell titanium materials, and design and manufacture electrodes and other products for heat exchangers and surface treatment as well as other products. Our company is focused on the titanium business. We are engaged in advanced technical development and patent acquisition regarding titanium. We also manufacture and sell nonferrous metal and stainless steel products.

Nonferrous metal processing and sales

[Strength of products/technologies]
Conventional techniques: We have consulting, design, and processing capabilities to manufacture heat exchangers, electrodes, and other products from titanium and other nonferrous metals according to individual requirements.

New techniques: We can handle titanium photocatalytic materials, lining plates, dye-sensitized solar cell materials, and other products born as the results of R&D and already patented.

[Representative's message]
Our company is a metalworking business specialized in titanium. We have been training and assigning many titanium welding technicians who require experienced skills for over 40 years. We also focus on R&D while deepening our conventional technology and experience. We have successfully developed and patented cutting-edge technology including titanium photocatalytic materials, lining structures (concrete lining method), and dye-sensitized solar cells. We handle all inquiries about titanium, satisfy customer requests with reliable technology, and solve various problems. This is done by combining new and conventional technologies and further developing them.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company has been cultivating experience and technology to manufacture titanium products by means of welding and machining. We manufacture products and merchandise by making use of conventional technology and new technology with high added value developed by our R&D department. Our company has overseas sales staff with both English proficiency and international trade administration power in the sales department of our head office. Our staff are developing sales channels for our products and merchandise and expanding our business overseas.

[Market share/Ranking]
We do not have numeric data about our market share or ranking in the industry. However, we have a high presence in the surface treatment and chemical industries as one of Japan’s few leading-edge companies to process and manufacture titanium products for industrial use.
