Chuo Kakohki: Fostering innovation, reliability, amid global expansion

Article - April 15, 2024

As the first company in Japan to introduce vibration mills, Chuo Kakohki pioneers advanced technology, crafting solutions and shaping manufacturing at home and abroad.

Japanese companies like Chuo Kakohki are embracing innovation to maintain a competitive edge in an ever-changing market. Known for producing vibration mills and dryers, company president Hisanori Kato believes success is rooted in the monozukuri spirit and a commitment to continuous improvement.

"Foreign clients seek reliable partners and we consistently meet expectations, with Japan's strong work ethic elevating our manufacturing standards," he says. There is a clear commitment to being a one-stop-shop for customers, reinforced by its in-house custom-made manufacturing packages.

Addressing Japan's demographic shift, Mr. Kato outlines proactive measures, including recruiting foreign workers and fostering a supportive working environment. The company's transparency serves as an appealing quality for potential recruits.

"We have small and attractive solutions such as a good logo and new uniforms that capture young people’s attention."

With expertise in vibration technology, a track record dating back to 1961, the president emphasizes reliability, comprehensive after-sales services, and environmental responsibility.

"Our patented exit valve design ensures uniform drying, enhances energy efficiency, and sets us apart," he says, while also revealing that the company is working with Nippon Hi-Frequency on microwave-related research.

As Chuo Kakohki approaches its 75th anniversary, Mr. Kato's goal is clear, to nurture growth in Vietnam utilizing the cost-effective labor across Southeast Asia. And as the company explores international markets, semiconductors and battery components in collaboration with American and Canadian companies is of particular interest, as strategic entry into the automotive industry beckons.
