Seriously dedicated "craftsman's spirit"


The encounters with you empower us and encourage us to aim to contribute to the world.

Our company was founded at the end of the 19th century before the Russo-Japanese War.
The company’s business during my great-grandfather’s time was manufacturing farm equipment.

Since then we have used our production technology capability to focus on manufacturing stainless steel containers and we accumulated a great deal of know-how meeting the needs of our customers in a variety of industries.

After the collapse of the Bubble Economy was truly a difficult time, but our one hope at that time was our encounter with the many excellent “hands” and “hearts” of our veteran craftsmen.
Most of the value added of our products come from the extraordinary “hands of our craftsmen.” And these “hands” come from the seriously dedicated “hearts for producing things.” We can call this the craftsman’s spirit.

To our veteran members who are well known in the industry we added young and middle-aged members with strong ambition who take on without hesitation challenging products that many in the industry shy away from.

One of those major challenges was “manufacturing equipment for pharmaceuticals.” Even as everyone was surprised at the high level of requirements for that equipment, one of our people said: “There is nothing that somebody else is already making that we can’t make.”

Thanks to our members today we also contribute to society by manufacturing much pharmaceutical equipment. It is our hope that the difficult machinery we manufacture is somewhere helping someone’s pain to subside or illness to heal. It is such thoughts that are our pride and joy.

The encounters with you empower us and encourage us to aim to contribute to the world.
