Gifu Sanken Kogyo Co., Ltd.

We manufacture and sell UKAI casters, which have advantages in strength and quality.

We are the manufacturer of UKAI brand industrial wheels and casters, which are popular worldwide. The strength and quality performance of our products have an established reputation. We take pride in the fact that our mainline product steel-plate casters for heavy loads can each resist a load of up to 800 daN. We have a pressing plant in our affiliated company, so we can support manufacturing from small lots with quick delivery. We have established a joint company with a Taiwanese enterprise in Shanghai, China. We can support our overseas customers with our two-base system consisting of the Shanghai factory and our in-house factory in Japan. We have also recently developed tires using elastomer, which can be utilized as casters for hand trucks.

[Company strength]
Our casters are popular under the UKAI caster brand. UKAI casters have been adopted by many customers because of their excellent load resistance. Our casters are used in factories and warehouses, as well as for the casters used in Tokyo Station, tourist facilities, and so on. Our products are frequently utilized in everyday life. We have established a joint company with a Taiwanese enterprise in Shanghai. Casters made in our Shanghai factory and in-house factory in Japan are used in many countries around the world, including China, Vietnam, Thailand, and Brazil. The high technical power of Japan is fully utilized in our products.

Casters manufactured by our caster business division have high strength and high quality performance. We particularly excel at manufacturing steel-plate casters for heavy loads (our casters can each endure 800 daN/ko). We have a pressing plant in our affiliated company, so we can support manufacturing from small lots (minimum pressing lots) with quick delivery. We also continuously work on new caster development in our R&D division.

[Representative's message]
Our company places the highest importance on a spirit of challenge. We now manufacture casters in Shanghai, China with a Taiwanese company and supply these products to many countries. We plan to expand this activity to Southeast Asia. We hope to use this internationalization to make the UGAI brand more famous by accumulating experience and taking on challenges.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our sales section will be the point of contact. Staff from our manufacturing section will also join meetings with customers if necessary. In the future we hope to establish a production and sales base in Vietnam. We hope to arrange a production and sales system for extending our sales to areas in Vietnam and other countries in Southeast Asia. At the same time our goal is to appoint human resources with global viewpoints.
