TOSA ELECTRONICS IND. CO., LTD.

We are a factory automation equipment manufacturer that is accelerating overseas expansion.

We are a manufacturer of factory automation (FA) equipment. We are expanding our business in Japan. We have a good track record, mainly in field of automated manufacturing equipment for camera modules for cellular phones, liquid crystal panels, and printed circuit boards. We have also entered fields such as solar panels and medical treatment, and expanded the scope of our business. We have many customers in Japan, such as Sharp Takaya Electronic Industry, Sun-S, and Panasonic Healthcare. In our overseas business we have a history of deliveries to Ibiden and so on. The number of inquiries from overseas affiliate factories of Japanese manufacturers has been increasing, so we now plan to strengthen our corporate organization. We worked on joint R&D with Ehime University under the theme of the development of three-dimensional recognition modules by using image processing in an onion peeling machine. We are also expanding the manufacturing and sales of electronic parts and communication equipment.

[Company strength]
Our company has been dealing with a large number of custom-made products for many years. We can apply this experience to make optimal proposals according to customer requests. We have achieved quick deliveries and low costs by introducing integrated handling. This covers from design (machine and electric design) to manufacturing (assembly and electric wiring), on-site installation, and maintenance, including processing parts manufacturing by our group company. Our worksite is also completely independent, so the leakage of confidential information is fully prevented. We have prepared a Class 100 cleanroom in our Nakamura HQ factory, so we can also conduct consignment parts manufacturing.

[Business description]
We provide factory automation equipment, mainly for the production of camera modules and liquid crystal panels for cellular phones and printed circuit boards. We have recently expanded our business to the design and manufacturing of various kinds of factory automation equipment related to solar panels and medical treatment. We are also engaged in the electronic parts business and communication equipment business. 

[Industry]
Electronic parts and FA equipment manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our technology unit conducts processing from the mechanical portion concept design using 2D and 3D CAD, up to designing details as well as hardware, software, and sequence control using PLC. Our manufacturing unit conducts equipment assembly, wiring, piping, adjustment, installation, and maintenance. We also have a track record in assembling and adjusting hard disk head positions (servo writers) within a common difference of 0.5 μm. We provide a wide range of support from new manufacturing to remodeling, jigs, and prototypes. This is done by taking advantage of the technology and experience we have been accumulating for many years.

[Representative's message]
We have been developing our business with a focus on factory automation equipment for major domestic Japanese manufacturers of consumer electronics appliances. However, the number of inquiries from overseas affiliate factories of Japanese companies has been increasing since 2010, and the number of direct exports has also been increasing recently. We possess strength in integrated manufacturing covering from concept design to installation. We have also strengthened our in-house system for export procedures, which we had previously entrusted to major consumer electronics appliance manufacturers, and for on-site start-ups of overseas affiliates. This is why we think that we have already completed preparations for further market expansion.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We established our FA sales headquarters as a point of contact for customers. This headquarters will provide support for new customers, including the direct commitment of our president. The FA sales headquarters and the technology department also cooperate to offer technical support and proposals according to customer requests. We have acquired ISO 9001:2008 certification and established a complete quality assurance system. The number of inquiries we receive from overseas affiliate factories of Japanese manufacturers has been increasing. We are accumulating experience with export procedures and overseas affiliate start-ups. We will further strengthen our corporate system.

[Market share/Ranking]
We are not sure of our exact share. We have a history of delivering camera module assembly equipment and printed circuit board conveying equipment to major manufacturers.
