Nihama Iron Works Co.,Ltd.

We support the recycling of resources as a long-established shredder manufacturer.

When our company was founded in 1937, we manufactured internal combustion engines for ships and also repaired and manufactured mining equipment. Today, our main lines of business are machine processing and the manufacture of shredders. Our “Lion Shredder” brand is used nationwide. This shredder obtains high torque with low horsepower and achieves strong shearing force by the deceleration of two axes equipped with cutters that rotate inward, and exhibits excellent fracture strength. The shredder hardly generates any noise, vibration or dust, can ensure a wide range of shredding, is optimum for recycling of resources and can also be used in the food industry, etc.

[Company strength]
When our company was founded 80 years ago, we manufactured internal combustion engines for ships and also repaired and manufactured mining equipment. We have also been involved in iron-related businesses such as the operation of foundries for cast iron, cast steel, etc., as well as businesses related to machine processing and chemical plant related manufacturing. We currently operate three main lines of business: machine processing for industrial machinery, manufacturing of shredders; and real estate business. Our “Lion Shredder” brand operates on a nationwide scale. We continuously strive to adapt to the changing times and the needs of society.

[Business description]
We can provide integrated manufacturing from design and development to manufacturing and delivery based on a proven track record since our founding in 1937. We quickly respond to customer needs and can process large- to small-sized machinery by using mechanical equipment. We can even deal with errors in the order of microns. Our biaxial “Lion Shredder” developed in-house is known as a pioneering product in the industry.


[Strength of products/technologies]
Our shredders can obtain high torque with low horsepower and exhibit a strong shearing force and extraordinary fracture strength by decelerating two axes equipped with cutters that rotate inward. The power source of the shredder is an electric motor, and operation and maintenance are easy. The shredder hardly generates any noise, vibration or dust, and ensures a wide range of shredding. The shredders are indispensable to the recycling of resources.

[Representative's message]
We aim to become a long-established shredder manufacturer in Aichi Prefecture, the leader in Monozukuri craftsmanship, without simply pursuing the expansion of scale and sales. We have become widely recognized through exposure in the media, participation in exhibitions, etc. Now is the time to expand sales.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our inverter-controlled “Lion Shredder EVO” is a groundbreaking model that delivers twice the power output as before while conserving energy. As an industry-first model, it also benefits from the Japan Inbound Tax Alert, so we receive numerous inquiries from home and abroad. We can respond to customers nationwide through our two bases: our headquarters in Nagoya and our Tokyo business office.
