Kitamura Limited

We have crushed more than 10,000 kinds of materials, such as resins and chemicals, to the micron level.

Our mainline business is our consignment crushing service, in which we crush various kinds of plastic, chemicals, and inorganic matter on consignment. We crush the materials to particle sizes desired by the customer, from several microns to several hundred microns. We classify powders by particle diameter, mix powders by homogenization, and dry and measure them. We have crushed more than 12,000 kinds of materials. We have achieved an order continuation ratio of 94% by installing cleanrooms and thoroughly washing post-work equipment to improve customer trust. Our company also manufactures fluororesin (PTFE) lubricant additives with excellent properties of low friction, non-adhesiveness, heat resistance, and water/oil repellency.

[Company strength]
(1) Consignment processing: We have crushed more than 12,000 kinds of materials. Our unrivaled achievements led to our order continuation ratio increasing to 94% in 2013. We possess a wide variety of many crushers as well as the first cleanroom in the industry. We also thoroughly clean equipment after work. We are trusted by customers as a reliable company because of these efforts.
(2) PTFE lubricant additives: We have a wide lineup of PTFE micro-powder products from high to low molecular weight types. The high molecular weight type can be compounded into plastics that are resistant to heat over 400 ºC. The low molecular weight type has a sharp particle diameter distribution and disperses easily in liquids. We meet the requests of various plastic, paint, and printing ink manufacturers with these products.

[Business description]
(1) Consignment processing: Our company is a pioneer of consignment processing for pulverizing various kinds of plastic, chemicals, and inorganic matter. We crush and classify various materials entrusted by our customers into desired particle sizes from several microns to several hundred microns.
(2) PTFE lubricant additives: We manufacture lubricant additives (fine powder) utilizing the excellent unique properties of fluororesin (PTFE), such as low friction, non-adhesiveness, heat resistance, water/oil repellency, and chemical resistance. PTFE fine powder produced using our company's unique technologies is used for plastic, paint, printing ink, and various other uses. We are extending the potential of tribology.

Chemical manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
(1) Consignment processing: We form unique combinations of crushers from several manufacturers. This is how we can make use of our excellent technologies to crush and classify various materials from difficult-to-crush engineering plastics to food additives. Our company also features crushing under a very clean environment.
(2) PTFE lubricant additives: We are the only manufacturer in the world that can pulverize completely sintered PTFE with a high molecular weight. We can provide products with various particle diameters and a sharp particle size distribution by crushing and classifying PTFE having various molecular weights. Our products range from fine powders of 2 μm in 50% particle diameter to coarse particles of about 40 μm.

[Representative's message]
We particularly treasure the phrase “try by all possible means” from among our company's action guidelines. This does not mean to flatter customers, but to try every means available to us. We must always consider what we should do to satisfy customer requests, and what we should do as a company. We will never be satisfied with things as they are. We will continue to brush up the value of our company and our attitude of “try by all possible means.” We will stay one jump ahead of our customers to become a reliable company.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
All of our sales staff have objectives in developing new customers and can provide technical support. In principle they directly visit customers to solve problems. We have English-speaking staff to handle inquiries about fluororesin lubricant additives, because many of these inquiries are from overseas. We invite an external teacher to provide English conversation lessons once a week as a consideration of future globalization, with the full cost borne by the company. We are also thinking of appointing global human resources who are proficient in English and Chinese.

[Market share/Ranking]
(1) We are in the top rank of the Japanese consignment crushing industry. We are extending our share of the market for crushing special inorganic materials for electric uses.
(2) Our highly heat resistant PTFE lubricant additives (KT Series) are used as globally unrivaled products. We have an overwhelming share of the Japanese market for printing ink.
