Pio Tech Co., Ltd.

We are working towards nationwide expansion in Japan with a solid oil system surface preservative agent that protects the urban landscape.

We are a chemical system technology development startup enterprise. We participated in a project to develop paint for preventing both bill posting and graffiti on concrete utility poles. We are working to cultivate markets as a specialized manufacturer of a solid oil system surface preservation agent based on the outcome of this project. We are now constructing a nationwide sales system in Japan in the concrete structure maintenance market. Effects to restrict degradation and salt damage are anticipated by applying our product to new concrete structures at an early stage. Maintenance and repairs become easy even for existing structures by applying our product after base preparation. This is because degradation is curtailed by blocking water infiltration from cracks. Our product is now utilized by customers including Kyushu Electric Power for preventing bill posting and graffiti.

[Company strength]
We continue to participate in industry-university-government cooperation. This involves the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, and local administrative bodies such as Fukuoka Prefecture and Fukuoka City. Our partners also include academic institutions such as Kyushu University, and major companies such as Kyushu Electric Power and S.C. Cement. We have built up partnerships at the technology development stage. This is how we have already arranged the infrastructure for nationwide diffusion and development in Japan of the outcomes we have created to date.

[Business description]
We are a chemical system technology development startup enterprise. The motivation for founding our company was to participate in a project to develop paint for preventing both bill posting and graffiti on Kyushu Electric Power’s concrete utility poles. We passed various performance tests, and the prospect of commercialization became certain. However, the project was frozen due to insufficient funding after the Great East Japan Earthquake, and actual introduction was postponed. We searched for a way to enter a new market as a specialized manufacturer of a solid oil system surface preservation agent based on the outcome of this technology development. We decided to repurpose our business for the concrete structure maintenance market. We plan to build a sales system aiming at markets throughout Japan.



[Industry]
Special paint manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our solid oil system surface preservation agent was the only proposal from 13 companies for Kyushu Electric Power to be adopted as an unprecedented product for independent use. Only our product was able to pass an accelerated 5,000-hour weather-resistance test (equivalent to 25 years of use). We have also received VE authentication in the New Technology Information System (NETIS) of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport, which indicates that a technology assures stable effects. This demonstrates approval of the degradation prevention (water repelling) effects and salt damage countermeasure effects of our product, in addition to its effects in preventing bill posting and graffiti.

[Representative's message]
The age of scrap and build has come to an end. Extending the lifetime of various facilities, including public structures, is now attracting attention, and the demand for a longer operating life is increasing. We think that our product can make a significant contribution in this context, with a focus on maintenance industry markets in Japan and abroad, in which high growth is expected. This is because it has achieved high workability such as quick drying and easy implementation as well as a long service life.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Complicated technology is not particularly required to manufacture our solid oil system surface preservation agent. We have cultivated local enterprises in various regions to cooperate in manufacturing, and built up a system with which we can provide manufacturing guidance, installation guidance, and sales cooperation. We will also expand to overseas markets in the same way.



[Market share/Ranking]
We are a new entry to the concrete structure market.
