Not only do we have total technological expertise,
including composite material development and manufacturing, precision molding,
micromachining and assembly technologies, and analysis and measurement techniques,
but we also combine these key technologies to develop completely new technologies.
Function-adding device manufacturing and machining techniques, which involve minute
machining, can be applied to macro- to micro- and nano-scale ranges of products.
We are going to use these key technologies to expand into the field of nanotechnology
to serve all industrial sectors including electronics, biotechnology, medicine,
optical technology, energy, etc.
With such a comprehensive technical portfolio, we have a wide product
lineup, ranging from stable profit-making products to products for industrial
sectors expected to grow in future. For example, molded insulation materials manufactured
our long-selling insulation material developed in 1969, or DVC DRAM bases manufactured
our composite precision molding material, boast top domestic shares, providing
us stable sources of profit.
Meanwhile, the resin-made Pulse Injector, developed using combinations
of our technologies, has great potential for various nanotech applications. The
Pulse Injector allows flexible manipulation and arrangement of different substances,
from bioparticles used as biomaterials, such as DNA, protein, fungi, bacteria,
etc., to metals, ceramics, and organic polymers, onto a wide variety of substrates.
What is behind these technologies is that we place importance on intellectual
assets. Our intellectual assets include not only our existing technologies and
patents, but also human assets ranging from our employees, consultants, and advisory
board consisting of specialists invited from outside. To put it simply, our growth
model is to use the collective intellectual power of our human resources for integrating
several different technologies to produce our original intellectual assets.
Employees will make great achievements, once they come to love their
jobs and company and know what their functions and missions are. Recently we have
attracted the attention of the government as a role model for Japanese companies.
That is because we clearly and fundamentally understand what an enterprise should
be and what functions it should perform and because the entire workforce, from
the president and executives down to rank-and-file employees, share the same goal.
We believe that such a cluster of people form intellectual assets, which by turn
generate other intellectual assets in the form of technologies.
