Tanabe Metal Tec Co., Ltd.

We are a sheet metal manufacturer that handles from iron to nonferrous materials such as titanium.

We are a precision sheet metal manufacturer that covers services from blanking, bending, welding, and canning to assembly. We provide high-mix low-volume production as well as mass-produced products with short lead times. Our company manufactures trial products by using unique working technologies without creating molds. We work with iron sheet materials, and also nonferrous materials such as stainless steel, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and copper. We have a wide range of customers. They include a housing equipment manufacturer (special stainless steel products), an electrical machine manufacturer (products for industrial machines), and a vehicle manufacturer (special stainless steel parts for VIP vehicles). We also work with a motorbike manufacturer (special parts for motorbikes), a semiconductor and LCD device manufacturer (stainless steel parts), and other customers.

[Company strength]
Our company is proactively implementing new sheet metal working machines and conducting employee skill training. This is being done for working on nonferrous metals such as stainless steel, aluminum, magnesium, titanium, and copper in addition to iron. We conduct educational training every year so our customers can be free from care because qualified workers are engaged in manufacturing. We have 12 employees engaged in sheet metal working. Eight are qualified as Grade 1 and three as Grade 2 of the Skilled Factory Metal Sheet Worker national qualification (as of the end of April 2014). Our company participates in the Precision Sheet Metal Technology Fair every year. We have received the Minister of Health, Labor and Welfare (MHLW) Award three times. We have also received the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) Award twice, and the Sheet Metal Working Master Award once. Our skills are highly appreciated from all sides.

[Business description]
We are a precision sheet metal manufacturer engaged in proposal-type businesses so as to prosper with our customers. Our mainline business covers services from blanking, bending, welding, and canning to assembly related to precision sheet metal products. We provide high-mix low-volume production as well as mass-produced products with short lead times. We have an in-house system capable of providing unique working technologies to manufacture trial products without creating dedicated molds wherever possible.

Precision sheet metal working

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our company features the latest production equipment based on proactive investments, as well as multiple workers capable of managing them. This greatly contributes to improving productivity and production efficiency to meet requirements for short lead times. We already have established an original manufacturing method as our know-how to create trial products by using general-purpose rather than dedicated molds. This reduces the time required for development and trial manufacturing as well as the cost (because dedicated molds are unnecessary), and also enables unique designs. This know-how is an indispensable technology for customers who want to distinguish themselves from other companies.

[Representative's message]
We have a plan to sell medical equipment products (now at the stage of clinical trials) in Japan and abroad, and we are now discussing the plan with a partner. We have a trial product we jointly developed with a startup company, and we will also extend sales channels for this product overseas. We receive inquiries from several matching sites, so we are now working hard to enrich our staff so we can offer quick support even to faraway customers.

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We have established a new business development department as a point of contact to cultivate new business with industry-university-government collaboration. Our technical sales staff will visit if you need consultation about technical matters, for example. We have a system for jointly expanding overseas manufacturing with a company in the same line of business (which has sites in China and Vietnam).
