ELCOM Co., Ltd.

Device manufacturer displaying a strong presence in niche markets

We develop unique technologies for niche markets that are difficult for major manufacturers to enter. Our main line of business is to manufacture and sell car park related equipment and snow melting equipment as well as environmental equipment. Our unique automatic waste compactor, PREMO can be used anywhere. All it requires is a 100V power supply, and it needs almost no maintenance. Our snow melting equipment for multi-story parking systems has a market share of 95% in Hokkaido. We have customers in Japan and abroad, and we have acquired several patents.

[Company strength]
We have our own engineering and development departments to develop original technologies for garbage compressors and spot-snowmelt devices. These are niche markets and cannot be reached by major companies. We have a maintenance system in place which is supported by our own employees and outsourced staff. We have gained user trust by our timely and low-cost after-sales services. We are expanding our environmental and cost-cutting products (Premo and Styros) into the national market. 

[Business description]
We started from the development and sale of parking lot machines. Our market share of snow melting device for multistage parking machine is 95% in Hokkaido, including IHI and Tokyo Parking. Our market share of cold area metered parking is 60%. We started developing and manufacturing far-infrared spot-snow melting devices 3 years ago and have been supplying them to electrical companies and corporate customers in Sapporo and Honshu. For environmental equipment, we use  our own technologies to develop and manufacture compact trash compressors and polystyrene volume reduction machines. We supply these products to supermarkets, hospitals, hotels, and fast food chains.

Machinery manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
The Automatic Waste Compactor PREMO Series uses motor chain driver system with 100 V power supply which is different from conventional hydraulic types. It realizes an almost maintenance-free operation. PREMO40, a trash bin with a compressor, has a communication modem that allows central management of waste by a cloud-based network. MEBO is the first low-cost version PET bottle compressing and collecting unit in Japan. It is used in commercial facilities including recycling stations. STYROS BUOY, a polystyrene foam volume reduction machine, can reduce the volume of floats and buoys in fish farms and turn them into recycled plastic fuel (E-PEP, a next-generation combustion equipment and boiler is also under development).

[Representative's message]
We have been expanding our environmental products (Premo  Styros and Mebo) into the national market. We will also create a foothold in overseas market by displaying our products in Pol Tech and other European exhibitions. We aim to gain market share in European market by our detailed Japanese technologies.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We increased the number of personnel in headquarters of marketing departments, and secured English speaking employees to enhance the response to overseas offers. We are smoothly transacting with major companies with the business development in our Tokyo office.

[Market share/Ranking]
We sold 145 units of trash compactors last year, and approximately 700 in total. Our market share is in the top 10 in Japanese market.
