Making nothing into something
Casting next value into the future
By combining the techniques we’ve passed on for
generations with new technologies and ingenuity,
we can create what we once could have only imagined.
Our philosophy is to stay true to our traditional roots
but remain flexible to new ideas as we endeavor to
fulfill an ever greater role in our society.
It all started with Kawachi craftsmen, a casting engineering group,
making Buddhist bells and Buddhist altar equipment.
Their techniques spread from Osaka throughout Japan laying
the foundation of Japan’s foundry technology.
We have continued to cultivate and pass down these skills
since our establishment in 1954 and we are proud to be
a part of Japan’s world famous foundry industry.
Our hope is to share our values with
our employees and the community at large.
This includes not only our traditions and knowledge,
but our prosperity as well.
We strive to take great care of our workers as well as foster
the interest of the next generation so they might
lead the way to a better future. For that reason,
we have open plant days where the public can see what we do
and children can get direct experience with casting.
This is not just a job, but rather a calling and we strive to enrich
the lives of all those we touch be it
through our products or our interactions.
We believe gaining new knowledge is one of man’s most crucial abilities.
With that in mind, we continue to push our limits to create
new breakthroughs and defy expectations.
This is the spirit we hope to embody as we continue on our path forward.
