Our company manufactures medical devices and rocket parts by making use of difficult-to-machine material processing technologies.
Our company has two mainline businesses. One involves medical device planning, design, manufacturing, and sales. Our other business involves space-related precision part machining. Both businesses are based on our technologies for processing difficult-to-machine materials and special metals. We market over 200 kinds of new medical devices every year by applying our awareness of medical needs. We have the top share in the Japanese market for orthopedic implants. We process difficult-to-machine materials on consignment to manufacture space-related parts for Japanese H2A rockets. Materials include titanium alloy, nickel, nickel alloy, cobalt-chromium alloy, and pure copper.
[Company strength] Our corporate advantages are our product planning and development capabilities and integrated production system. We have planning capabilities to commercialize products by appropriately recognizing various needs of doctors and other medical staff. We also have the development power to market over 200 kinds of medical device products annually. Our products aim to reduce surgical operation time and improve patient QOL. They are highly regarded and have received the Good Design Award many times. We also have advantages in integrated production. Our company has an integrated production system from in-house development to approval based on the Medical Affairs Act, manufacturing, and marketing.
