Hokuei Co., Ltd.

We are developing our business with a focus on three areas: household equipment, agricultural machines, and metal products.

We are developing our business with a focus on three areas: household equipment, agricultural machines, and metal products. We manufacture in-house brand products in the area of household equipment and agricultural machines. We manufacture custom-made products in the area of metal products. Our household equipment includes daily necessities such as kerosene tanks for domestic use and liquefied petroleum gas container storage. Our agricultural machines include beet transplanters, etc. Our metal products mainly include environmental equipment such as snow screens, solar platforms, and light catalyst equipment. We possess 3D CAD/CAM design capabilities, large-scale presses, automatic panel benders, etc., and we have established an integrated system from design to processing and shipment. We can conduct VE proposals, low-volume production, and quick delivery. We have a track record of delivering many OEM products.

[Company strength]
We manufacture various custom-made products, as well as manufacturing and selling our in-house brand metal products related to household equipment and agricultural equipment. One of our particular strengths is that we have established integrated sheet metal working from design and development to processing and shipment. We possess various processing capabilities such as 3D CAD/CAM design, presses (1,500-ton maximum), and automatic panel benders. This is how we can conduct VE proposals, low-volume production, and quick delivery. We have a good track record of receiving orders for various OEM products. We make active efforts to develop new products and to acquire new technology. We are taking on the challenge of new business areas by making use of the Strategic Core Technology Advancement Program, and so on.

[Business description]
We manufacture and sell products related to household equipment, agricultural machines, and custom-made products. Our household equipment includes daily necessities such as kerosene tanks for domestic use and liquefied petroleum gas container storage. Our agricultural machines include beet transplanters, etc. Our custom-made products mainly include environmental equipment such as snow screens, solar platforms, and light catalyst equipment. We are pursuing efficiency enhancement by proactively investing in manufacturing equipment and improving quality through a QC cycle, etc., as well as continuously developing new products. This is done by making use of the experience and performance we have been accumulating for more than 60 years since our foundation.

[Industry]
Metal product manufacturing

[Strength of products/technologies]
Our goal is to advance the establishment of inexpensive, safe gas treatment systems by using light catalysts for pollutant gas in various factories, the medical field, etc. This includes bad smells, VOCs, bacteria, and viruses. The cost of maintenance was very high in burning and adhesion, etc., using conventional technology. This is because of heating and filter exchange, etc. (In the case of large-scale machines, the cost was 2 to 3 million yen per month.) Maintenance costs are low in the case of a light catalyst, because the reaction is generated simply by an ultraviolet lamp under room temperature (30,000 to 40,000 yen per month). However, gas reaction power under a light catalyst is small, and there is an urgent need to increase its capacity. Our business proposal was approved under the Strategic Core Technology Advancement Program for our R&D efforts to commercialize a product that targets realizing 2.5 times the current capacity. 

[Representative's message]
Environment related business is a field in which future growth is expected. We are advancing our research on light catalyst equipment toward differentiation from our competitors, such as by improving processing power and VOC (volatile organic compound) resolution. We are expanding our business by providing products that can support customer needs. We believe that the demand for air cleaning is high at printing and semiconductor factories, and at medical sites, where VOCs are likely to be generated. The key to developing our light catalyst business lies in our capability to provide products that can deal with VOCs. We have already expanded into the China and Korea markets. We hope to actively maintain these efforts. 

[Company structure for market development/overseas expansion]
We support transactions with major companies by assigning staff in charge in the Kanto sales office and Sapporo HQ. Two development engineers in the light catalyst field will mainly support technical issues in cooperation with design engineers, according to the contents of the issue. We have prepared global staff who can offer support in Chinese, Korean, and English for overseas expansion. They are familiar with business in China and Korea.

[Joint research and development]
Our business proposal was approved under the Strategic Core Technology Advancement Program in 2012. The theme was the development of an advanced light catalyst resolution processing system for detoxifying environmental pollution gas. The period of development was from September 2012 to March 2015. The members of this joint R&D community included Showa Denko Ceramics, Hokkaido University, and the Hokkaido Research Organization/Industrial Research Institute (local incorporated administrative agency).
