Y. A. C. Co., Ltd.
Rich experience in providing cleaning equipment for liquid crystal and semi-conductor industries
Our facility is a major factory for Y.A.C. doing business in four fields of mechatronics, display, cleaning, and lighting. Our facility develops and manufactures solar cell production equipment (texturing process) as well as liquid crystal glass substrate etching equipment, semi-conductor cleaning equipment, and cleaning equipment for industrial components. We have many customers in and out of Japan including solar cell manufacturers, liquid crystal production equipment manufacturers, and semi-conductor manufacturers. We have experience in joint R&D in industrial and academic collaboration. We respond to customers’ requests about maintenance and provide them with solutions that best fit their needs.
[Company strength] We provide an integrated system for development, manufacture, sale and after-sale service with our four divisions operating in a coordinated manner to establish a firm relationship with customers. Based on this trust in our service and technology, we provide equipment that matches customer needs and conduct stable management. Our four divisions are Mechatronics Products Division (hard disc related equipment, semi-conductor production equipment, solar cell related equipment, etc.), Display Manufacturing Equipment Division (production equipment related to liquid crystal and organic EL), Cleaning Equipment Division (pressing and packing machines for the apparel and cleaning industry), Lighting Division (electron-emitting source for field emission lamp, which is a mercury-free, high-brightness, and high-efficiency light source). We are a small group of excellent engineers. We can develop and manufacture made-to-order products that meet customers’ demands. [Business description] Our factory develops, designs, manufactures, and provides maintenance to solar cell production equipment (texturing process), liquid crystal glass substrate etching equipment, semi-conductor cleaning equipment, and cleaning equipment for industrial components. [Industry] Precision machinery and equipment [Strength of products/technologies] Our facility is highly experienced in wet cleaning and etching. As we have an environment where chemicals can be actually used, we can treat customers’ silicon wafers or glass substrates and test them in that environment. (We own demonstration equipment.) [Representative's message] More than half of the products shipped from our facility are exported to overseas. We particularly sell our products to Asian customers. The ratio of sales in Asian countries is increasing in the future, and we are actually receiving inquiries from Asia. However, competitors are emerging in the EU and Asia (particularly in greater number these days), and we are currently suffering from price competition. It is essential for us to work with other cooperating companies in order to swiftly provide high quality, inexpensive products. We believe we have to actively work on alliance with other process manufacturers in the same industry with respect to sales. We look forward to working with many companies through JegTech. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] Local companies in foreign countries, branch offices, major domestic trading firms and foreign agents [Market share/Ranking] Ranked 2nd or 3rd in the global market [Awards and media coverage] [Awards] [Media] Various newspapers including Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, Electronic Device Industry News, and Oita Godo Shimbun ran articles about our state-of-the-art technology and establishment of a factory related to solar cell production. [Authorization/Certification] ISO 14001 [Joint research and development] Public and private universities in Kyushu and Kansai, Ritsumeikan Asia Pacific University [Main Clients / Business History (domestic)] Major solar cell manufacturers in and out of Japan (Japan, China, Taiwan, Malaysia, South Korea, and the Philippines), liquid crystal equipment manufacturers in China and Taiwan, major semi-conductor manufacturers in Japan, etc. [Main Clients / Business History (overseas)] Major solar cell, liquid crystal, and semi-conductor manufacturers
