Kamogawa Co., Ltd.

We are a machine tool manufacturer with customers in Japan and overseas.

We are a machine tool manufacturer established in 1949. Our company mainly develops, manufactures, and sells special super-hard-material tools, and diamond electrodeposition tools. Our operations also include wholesaling ordinary cutting tools and grinding stones. We have many customers in Japan, including Toyota Motor, AISIN AW, Denso, JTEKT, Panasonic, and Shimano. Our overseas customers are mostly subsidiaries of these Japanese companies. We are currently setting up overseas sites in Asian countries in addition to our existing sites in Japan. This includes China (two sites), the Philippines (two sites), and Vietnam (four sites). We opened our Monozukuri craftsmanship laboratory in January 2016. Our goal is to use this facility to develop unique technologies such as our diamond electrodeposition tools, aiming at business expansion through high-quality Monozukuri craftsmanship.

[Company strength]
We currently have domestic Japanese production sites in Kyoto, Shiga, Aichi, and Kagoshima Prefectures. We are also actively setting up overseas sites in Asian countries, such as China (two sites), the Philippines (two sites), and Vietnam (four sites). Our strong wholesale operation remains our main business. We are also focusing on the development and manufacturing of unique work tools, which is why we established our own laboratory in 2015. Our high-precision diamond electrodeposition tool was selected for the 2016 New Selection in Kansai. 

[Business description]
We develop, manufacture, and sell special super-hard-material tools and diamond electrodeposition tools, in addition to our wholesale business of ordinary cutting tools and grinding stones. Our diamond electrodeposition tool department has an extensive track record in the semiconductor field (ceramics processing). They have also accumulated experience in the fields of automobiles and construction machinery (direct milling of super-hard dies, electro-deposited honing, deburring tools). 

[Industry]
Machine tool sales; super-hard-material tool and diamond tool manufacturing and sales

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our strong sales network accurately captures needs and issues from the manufacturing floor. Our super-hard-material tools and diamond electrodeposition tools were developed and manufactured based on this feedback. We excel at these kinds of high-precision, high-quality products that help increase actual sales. We established our Monozukuri craftsmanship laboratory in January 2016. We will use it to facilitate the development of original technologies (such as our diamond electrodeposition tool), and pursue higher precision and quality. 

[Representative's message]
Our company is actively entering the domestic Japanese and overseas markets as a direct sales manufacturer. We hope to use our work tool development to help enhance productivity in Monozukuri craftsmanship. We will do this by specializing in finishing tools, such as high-precision reamers, and diamond and CBN diamond electrodeposition tools. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We are actively expanding to overseas countries, such as China (Guangzhou, Pinghu), the Philippines, and Vietnam (Hanoi, Ho Chi Minh City, Da Nang, Hai Phong). We have established local subsidiaries in these countries that function as sales offices. Some of these sites have both sales offices and plants and workshops to provide regrinding and other localized services.
