Message from President

Michifumi Watanabe

Ever since we started in 1964, our company has been using water atomization to create nonferrous, ferrous, and precious metal powders and send these all around the world. Today, these metal powders are being used as the raw materials for various precision parts and other components of automobiles, home appliances, office automation and others necessary to our daily life. On the other hand, these metal powders have also become indispensable manufacturing ingredients, used as insulating or conducting components, including as electronic micro-electrodes.We are proud of our basic manufacturing technology, responding to our customers’ requirement quickly. We are constantly improving our technology and will make efforts to develop it furthermore.We will greatly appreciate your further support and guidance.
