[Company strength]
We can provide express trial production even for a single item. Our company can flexibly handle both small-lot production of many products and mass production of consumer products through our factories in Japan and subcontracted factories overseas. We follow an integrated approach that includes circuit design, circuit board manufacturing, component procurement, and component packaging. This is how we can handle all aspects of production from development and design to equipment installation. This eliminates problems many of our customers have had with the complicated process of having to work with multiple companies for each stage of production and managing different delivery timelines. The strength of our company lies in our ability to swiftly satisfy customized requests.

[Strength of products/technologies]
We applied the technology that contributed to the development of the next-generation DVD blue-violet laser in our six-nanosecond laser diode high-speed pulse aging device. We received an Honorable Mention for this work at the Kanagawa Prefecture Industrial Technology Development Grand Prize. We have contributed to the production processes of various manufacturers through our inspection equipment for LED elements, which are featured in large numbers in today’s LED lighting. We apply our core image recognition technology to develop and manufacture inspection equipment installed on in-house production lines for various customers, and medical devices that rely on image recognition. 



[Representative's message]
Our company has sales offices in Kanagawa and Niigata Prefectures. We wanted to do whatever we could to help support the restoration activities following the Great East Japan Earthquake. This is why we established our Sendai R&D Center in Natori City, Miyagi Prefecture in April 2015. We hired local people for all staff positions, and built a structure that supports integrated subcontracted development of cutting-edge electronic devices in the Tohoku region, ranging from sales to development. We handle subcontracted development for high-performance electronic devices, so we have introduced the latest equipment such as cleanrooms and measuring instruments. We also intend to pursue industry-university cooperation with universities in the Tohoku region with the aim of becoming a company that is trusted by regional companies and universities. We look forward to your continuing support. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company has established supervisors for new development who also serve as the point of contact for inquiries from corporate customers. We have an integrated internal system that covers all upstream processes from circuit design to manufacturing and development to manufacturing, as well as downstream processes. Our supervising engineers can cooperate to quickly satisfy customized requests and projects that could not be realized by other companies. Our goal is to become a trusted partner for our corporate customers.
