Air-con specialists committed to sustainability and global growth

Article - January 29, 2024

Toyo Densen offers nearly eight decades of expertise in parts, accessories and tools for air-conditioning systems.

A Japanese firm that turns 80 in 2025, Toyo Densen specializes in manufacturing pipes, ducts and other parts for air-conditioning systems, as well as accessories and installation tools.

Customers can expect a comprehensive service; after all, Toyo Densen also operates as a trading company, allowing it to source and supply products even if it cannot make them itself.

“This flexibility has been instrumental in the growth we’ve enjoyed,” says President Yasunobu Okuda.

While the core product manufactured by Toyo Densen is currently its insulated copper pipe, the firm’s aluminum CAT pipe is shaping up as a future best-seller.

“Our CAT pipe weighs two-thirds less than copper pipes and has a lower cost,” Mr. Okuda explains. “It’s economical, lightweight and easy to install. Additionally, aluminum reserves are much larger than copper reserves.”

As well as embracing more sustainable materials, Toyo Densen has begun recycling old air-conditioning components into new products of the same type.

“In the next five years, I believe there’ll be a new era where companies are criticized for using virgin materials,” Mr. Okuda says. “To secure our position as a leading company, it’s important to implement this recycling scheme.”

Toyo Densen is also working to safeguard its status in its industry – and, indeed, boost its profile – by strengthening its international sales.

“In 2024, we’ll be dedicating our resources to attending overseas exhibitions, such as events in India and Indonesia,” Mr. Okuda notes. “Our jumping-off point will be Asia, and from there we hope to tackle the global market.”
