Corporate culture

Our company was founded in Hakodate in 1967. Currently we are located in the neighboring town of Hokuto and we produce machinery to process a wide range of fish species. We mainly make processing machinery for the regional processing industry of squid, salmon and scallops.

From single machines to the total layout of entire factories, our sales network is mainly in Hokkaido and Tohoku domestically and also overseas in Southeast Asia, North America, and Russia. We enjoy the world top market share with a lot of our original machines.

In recent years, utilizing technology cultivated in the fisheries industry, we have promoted development beyond the boundaries of the seafood industry to machinery related to both the agricultural and medical care sectors.

We strive hard at producing machines using "creativity" "ingenuity" and "research".

A senior employee

I thought that I could make use of conventional experience and knowledge and entered the company in 2010. I currently perform design work such as new development and specification changes of existing machine in the design department.

With the introduction of 3D CAD software several years ago, complex designs can be done more efficiently. We liaise with other sections and share opinions and solve problems together. Anyone who is interested in or curious about tinkering with and improving machines should join us.

I originally did design work, and entered this company in 2007 after training in the basics of mechanical drawing such as 3DCAD software in Hakodate Polytechnic Center.

The main task is to design products based on specifications requested from customers. This work often leads to the creation of new machines and equipment, it is often challenging but I feel great satisfaction when my designs become real products. It is a pleasant place to work with many people of the same generation.
