YOSHIKAWA Corporation

We are a powder and grain feeder manufacturer that exports to more than 30 countries. 

We are a powder and grain feeder manufacturer that does business in both the domestic Japanese and overseas markets. Our company supplies products mainly in the fields of chemicals, food, the environment, and energy, in addition to various other fields, and we have many customers in Japan. Our products are also exported to more than 30 overseas companies through overseas agents. We have confidence in our technological strength as a developer and manufacturer. The development of our Circle Feeder powder and grain feeder was a result of the insight and experience we have accumulated in the years since our establishment in 1947. This product overcame problems with segregation and difficulty in discharging, which used to be a serious problem with conventional screw type and rotary type feeders. Circle Feeder has been patented in more than 40 countries as part of our current sales expansion efforts.

Other presentation

[Company strength]
Powder and grain feeders are used in a wide range of industries, including chemicals, food, pharmaceuticals and the environment, because of their application. We understand from our inquiries about storage and supply problems that our feeders are often used in cutting-edge technologies in these industries. The patents and know-how we have acquired from this problem-solving are both our important intellectual property and our strength. Our motto is to make the impossible possible. We hope to contribute to society by actively addressing difficult problems. 

[Business description]
Our company is a developer and manufacturer that develops, manufactures, and sells powder and grain feeders for a wide range of industries, such as chemicals, pharmaceuticals, food, and the environment. Our extensive lineup includes the Circle Feeder powder and grain feeder (patented in 41 countries). We also supply various other types of feeders from micro feeders (1 gram per hour) to large feeder systems for silos. Our customers are 80% Japanese companies, while the remaining 20% are overseas companies, which are located in more than 30 countries. 


[Strength of products/technologies]
The Circle Feeder powder grain feeder is our original product. It has acquired a large share of the domestic Japanese market for the special feeding field, where segregation and difficult-to-discharge materials can be a problem. These kinds of problems are too difficult for commonly available screw-type or rotary-type feeders to deal with. They can be resolved by making use of our accumulated know-how and the Circle Feeder’s bridging prevention and segregation prevention functions. We also manufacture and sell large, table-type feeders specifically for silos, which are rarely made in Japan. 

[Representative's message]
We respond to special feeding needs in the chemical, food, environment, and energy fields. We are also committed to technological improvement and product development. All our employees are making extra efforts under the mission of addressing apparently impossible powder and grain feeding problems. We have extensive results (unit sales of over 8,500 units) and know-how. We will use this as a base to further focus on sales activities both in Japan and overseas. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our usual sales activities are carried out by the technology sales and planning departments. We also use websites and exhibitions to acquire new customers. We have six overseas sales agents located in North America, EU, Korea, China, and other countries. Sales activities are overseen by dedicated sales representatives.

[Market share/Ranking]
We have a large share of the domestic Japanese market for special material feeders with potential discharging or segregation problems.
