Message from the President

Today we cannot imagine life without electricity. We expect trains to run on time and that lights will turn on at the flick of a switch. These things are achieved by a stable supply of electricity. Power distribution facilities ensure that electric power is supplied in the appropriate amounts and only to the necessary places. It is power distribution equipment that plays an important role in the smooth and efficient delivery of power to industry and consumers.

As a top manufacturer of power distribution equipment enjoying a high market share in Japan, we have focused on the development of new products that meet a variety of needs of electric power companies and railway companies throughout Japan, ever since our inception in 1956.

Looking ahead, we are stepping up our efforts and the energy which we devote to creating a more prosperous society enabled by our accumulated knowledge and technology, and manifested through a stable and efficient power supply.
