We engage in the manufacturing, sales and construction of underwater speakers, underwater sound collectors, underwater talking equipment, waterproof acoustic equipment, tsunami warning support equipment, etc. We have the top market share in Japan for underwater speakers used in synchronized swimming pools, aquariums, and the like. We also manufacture rescue equipment which integrates a completely waterproof camera, microphone, and speaker and is used in disasters such as when people become buried alive, during heavy rain, and so on. Based on these technologies, we provide custom-order fabrication services for precision-machining capsules that withstand the water pressure at a depth of 500 m. We plan to extend sales to applications including tablet terminals, smartphones, home-use game machines, and radio equipment.
