[Industry]
Manufacture of electrical machinery  equipment and supplies

[Strength of products/technologies]
We excel in power-distribution instrumentation controls and engineering capabilities integrated with the field of information solution.  We can also respond to latest demands for smart grids through our proposals on total solutions.  We can design and manufacture a wide variety of control power-distribution systems, including data center systems (such as PDU  PDF  etc.), energy conservation systems (such as wind power,  sunlight,  and biomass for BEMS , micro grid control  etc.), and environmental conservation systems (such as water processing and industrial waste processing ), and facility systems (such as those for offices , factories,  hospitals  etc.).  Our  handy-type optical saccharimeter "AMAMIR" is a tester to measure sugar contents of fruits in a few seconds  and is highly evaluated as an item of next-generation farming.

[Representative's message]
Our late founder came back to his home town Aomori after the WW2 from Manchuria and set up an electricity work business.  In 1951, he started wholesale of electronic materials under the corporate philosophy 'enthusiasm and sincerity', and successfully expanded the company with continuous efforts, collecting materials of electric equipment from Tokyo, Nagoya, and Kansai areas and supplying them to Aomori.  In 1965, he saw prospects in power distributing boards, which is a major material of electric equipment, and set up Towa Electric Material Supply & Co.  Ltd. Hirosaki Factory, which became independent under the name Towa Electric Industry Co.  Ltd. in 1973.  This is the origin of our company, and since then, we have mainly produced power distributing boards under our own bland TOWA.  We have sent some of our technical sales reps to Towa Electric Material Supply to better understand customer needs, and expanded our sales areas to all the Tohoku and Tokyo regions.  Now 50% of our sales come from these regions.  In 2001, we moved our aged Hirosaki Factory together with the headquarters to the current location (Fujisaki cho) for better efficiency and larger production capability.  We are currently capitalized at 100 million yen, with annual sales of approximately 4 billion yen and 360 employees.  We have strengthened inter-company cooperation with Towa Electric Material Supply and other group companies (Akita Towa Electric Material, Coresis, and Tohoku Dengyo) and formed the Towa Group (total annual sales 23 billion yen and 600 employees), working together for imaginative cohabitation with the regional environment.
