Yamada Giken Co., Ltd.

We develop snow and ice instrumentation sensors that overcome snow- and ice-related problems.

We have developed general technology through independently establishing a stand-alone theme with small lot and high value being added. We also develop and commercialize products with hardware and software in an integrated manner. We are using our general technology as a tool, and developing our business targeting niches where the market is too small for major corporations. In addition, small and medium-sized corporations find it difficult to commercialize products because of a lack of general technology. The source of our general technology lies in developing the system technology with the power and speed that our founder feels are necessary for various products. Such thinking was acquired by our founder in the equipment industry, working as a craft worker for many years. We commercialize the products by combining the amateur radio manufacturing technology our founder mastered as a hobby and processing technology on-site.
