Location：Japan, Korea, China, Singapore, Thailand & USA
Products：Optical semiconductor and photo sensor
We established KODENSHI CORP. in Uji, Kyoto in 1972. We began business with solar cells, and enlarged the business area to optical semiconductors, and photo sensors. We developed solar cells by using revolutionary semiconductor manufacturing technology, inspired by “Katazome (Traditional Silkscreen Printing Technology)” technology of Kyo-Yuzen. It enables us to create high-sensitive semiconductors at a much lower investment cost, compared with leading semiconductor manufacturers. In the 1980s, we started the telecommunication equipment business in Korea, then we established a factory in China. Among three different countries, Japan, Korea and China, we promoted the establishment of KODENSHI Group. Thanks to construction of the unique SCM, we managed to keep pace with rapid production development cycles of leading manufactures of home electronics appliances, and enlarged our business area. In line with the growth of home electronic appliances, we continued supplying many kinds of key parts and photo sensors for various products. For example, the infrared remote control receiver for TV, the Pick-up IC for CD & DVD, encoders for Printers, and so on.
Photo IC ： CDs and DVDs
Infrared Remote control Receiver ：TV and video
Interrupters, Infrared Range Finding Sensors： ATM (cash dispenser), OA equipment (as passing & paper existence detection)

Industry：Optical Semiconductor Industry
Position：Strong and Unique existence in a Niche Market. We occupy the No.1 share in the world for encoders (More than 70%)
Others：Japan (Tokyo, Nagoya, Suwa), Korea (Iksan), China (Shenyang, Shanghai, Hong Kong), Singapore(Singapore), Thailand (Bangkok), USA (San Diego)
We have a strong presence in Asia, where many Japanese manufactures and their production sites are located. We have expertise in customization. We are working to strengthen sales in the Chinese, USA and European markets
Company Goals & Objectives
Goal：Profit Rate 30%, New Products Revenue Ratio: 50%
According to the policy of president Hirokazu Nakajima, the Sales Strategy Dept., Production Design Dept. and Quality Assurance Dept. cooperate mutually. Also Japan, China and Korea cooperate on equal footing under the same spirit. We have a total production system to manage development, production and sales altogether.
Development of solar cell.
The decision to change our business direction to photo sensors, by applying technology acquired in solar cell development.
Especially, to strengthen the share of our products in USA market, we are looking forward to meet a partner. If you are interested, do not hesitate to contact us!
