Our strength is in our manufacturing of machinery and equipment that are required to comply with strict requirements (such as airtightness, precision, appearance, and operability). This includes medical and physical/chemical equipment. Our medical equipment products include operating room air conditioning units, cold and warm insulation storage units, medical pass boxes, and X-ray film illuminators.

[Company strength]
Our company started as a sheet metal working factory dedicated to medical equipment, and we have completed over 500 medical equipment projects so far. We are confident that our finishing techniques from medical equipment production can be applied to various other sheet metal products. We now manufacture various products in a wide range of fields. We are also actively developing new products to enhance technology and contribute to society. Our company was selected under the Monozukuri Craftsmanship New Selection in Kansai program in 2015. 

[Business description]
Our main business is sheet metal working for special devices, such as medical, physical/chemical, and cleanroom equipment. We are usually involved from the design phase. We are more focused on OEM production than our own brand. This is why we accept a wide range of proposals, covering from manufacturing support for standardized products to single made-to-order products. Our goal is to become the best partner for our customers, so we made it our corporate policy to always work hard to enhance our manufacturing skills through ingenuity. 


[Strength of products/technologies]
Our staff specialize in appearance design, sheet metal design, and electric circuit design. We can make use of our craftsmanship to give shape to your needs, even when you do not have production drawings or appearance drawings. This is based on the results of thorough discussions. We can also make use of technologies related to medical equipment that we jointly developed with universities and research institutions. 

[Representative's message]
Japanese manufacturers are highly valued in overseas markets because of the high-quality products that they have brought into the world. The numerous SMEs in Japan’s manufacturing sector can be categorized into two types. One type includes companies that develop technologies, and the other consists of companies that have expertise in production. We hope to work hard so that we can balance both the capabilities for creation and production and pass on this craftsmanship. We will do this so that our company can create a new strength for Japan and grow into a truly global company.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
Our company has been cultivating two kinds of craftsmanship: creation and production capabilities. We will make use of these skills to maintain good manufacturing practice that produces the exact products that our customers need. This is illustrated by the example of our hospital infection prevention equipment, which received an award last year. We will prepare an organizational framework to respond to overseas customers by making the best use of our track record.
