Tokushu Iryo Co., Ltd.

We manufacture head protection hats that can be widely used for various kinds of work, daily use, and emergencies. 

Our company supplies linens, and manufactures medical and welfare equipment such as head protection hats to hospitals and institutions. Our head protection hats are used for multiple purposes, such as work, daily use, and emergencies. We can meet a wide range of needs because we possess a sewing factory. Our strengths also include the multiple services we provide, such as cleaning and welfare equipment manufacturing for hospitals and institutions.

Other presentation

[Company strength]
Our company has mainly been operating in the linen supply services business since its establishment in 1979. Our company has grown during this period of more than 30 years. At the same time we have tried to meet various requests from our customers, such as hospitals and institutions. This was done by adding new businesses such as cleaning services, as well as planning, manufacturing, and sales of welfare equipment under our own brand. We can provide various services in the medical and welfare market.

[Business description]
Our company started out as mainly a linen supplier. We later added cleaning and welfare equipment to respond to our customers’ calls for further growth.

Cleaning, manufacturing, and sales

[Strength of products/technologies]
All the manufacturing processes from planning and design for our brand products are conducted in-house. Customer requests for prototype making, as well as repairs and design changes, are quickly handled by our internal design staff and our sewing factory. Our company possesses a sewing factory, so we can accommodate a wide range of customer requests from size changes of ready-made goods to orders for custom made goods. We also plan, manufacture, and propose OEM products to corporate customers. 

[Representative's message]
Needs for general-purpose head protection hats come from many fields, and our products are used in various circumstances including workplaces, daily life, and emergency situations. However, many people would rather avoid wearing head protection because of the more common image of helmets, which are still used despite their well-known poor work efficiency. We hope to promote apparently ordinary hats that are good protective gear to wear in accident-prone places. Sales in Taiwan are increasing, so we hope to look for opportunities to target wealthy people in Asia.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We created a system for handling short-term mass production orders for the first time when we received a mass production order from Hokkaido Electric Power for their meter readers’ hats. A more recent example is our joint development project with Toyota Motor. This experience taught us how to share work with a major company, and how the manufacturing processes should be managed. This will serve as a useful reference when we arrange our organizational framework.

[Market share/Ranking]
Our abonet series (protection hats) is attracting attention nationally. We also receive orders from various places in Japan for a simulation set because there are no other similar products, and the products have great social significance.
