Corporate information

Welcome

The automotive industry has changed dramatically, keeping pace with technological progress and globalization trends. Next-generation automobiles, including hybrid vehicles (HV), electric vehicles (EV), and fuel-cell vehicles (FCV), are already in production, and autonomous driving will be reality in the near future. A revolution has come to the automotive parts industry, too.
We have always pursued the best technology, exceeding customer expectations through every phase of development, manufacturing, and quality assurance through our unique corporate strength. We work with customers from the initial planning and design stages of new car development, developing new techniques, proposing new materials, and handling processes such as welding, assembly, and surface treatment, applying our technical expertise and production stance in a unified, efficient manner.
Our strongest assets are our unique pipe fabrication and surface treatment technologies, and we will continue to leverage these strengths to provide the quality products our customers demand.
2017 marked the 60th anniversary of our incorporation, while in 2018 we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the founding of the company. And we are more determined than ever to continue supporting the development of the automotive industry.

Sadaki Tanaka, President
