In August 2000, upholding principles of “creative challenge (scrap and build)” and “elitism (small numbers, exceptional talent”, we established our company in Fukushima, Japan, to become the only and best one in the production of high-precision metal tubes that cannot be matched by other companies. Since then, our products have been used in various industry fields and highly valued by our customers.

Aiming to pursue and innovate our expert craftsmanship that can meet the needs of the diversifying times, we have been improving our accuracy and quality required in the ever-changing industry trends, and taking on the challenges of establishing manufacturing technologies to produce tubes from new alloys, difficult-to-process rare/precious metals, and their alloys with high precision.

In addition, we have been developing not only tubes as raw materials, but also as functional parts. As a result, we have established an integrated production system that allows us to perform secondary processing such as cutting, pressing, and bending along with our fine tube drawing technologies.

In July 2015, we newly expanded our factory with an improved environment so that our tube manufacturing and shipping inspection can be performed in a semi-clean room for the mass production of tubes for medical devices, especially biomaterial tubes to be placed in vivo.

From now on, we will continue to make unremitting efforts and commitment to create products with the finest care in order to cater to complete satisfaction of our valued customers.
