Mold design and manufacturing, plastic injection molding, and machining

[Strength of products/technologies]
We overcame many obstacles to develop a shell for fireworks in an industry-university-government project, and it won the first Monozukuri (Manufacturing) Nippon Grand Award in 2005. This previously unavailable biodegradable resin shell is safe and environmentally friendly. It is extensively used in our hometown Omagari Fireworks Festival in Akita Prefecture. We completed a revolutionary cap for polypropylene urine bottles for men in a medical-engineering collaboration project with Akita University. This was done in order to realize what nurses thought would be a good idea in this medical equipment. We have sufficient technologies to continue to complete such highly original products. We handle general-purpose engineering plastics, super engineering plastics, biodegradable resins with low environmental loads, in-house pellet blends, and recycled materials. We are doing our best to develop new products by making the most of these raw materials.

[Representative's message]
Our company is particular about the air, water, and people of Akita Prefecture. We handle products in a great variety of fields from medical parts to shells for rocket fireworks. We take care not to harm our favorable environment, and to remain in harmony with it.
