Daimei Plastic: Sustainable innovation for more than a century

Article - August 18, 2023

Daimei is looking to continue its model of sustainably creating plastic products of unrivaled quality.

“Daimei is a company that considers the global environment, grasps market trends, and continues to innovate.” Toru Yamaguchi, President, Daimei Plastic Co., Ltd.

A molded plastic parts manufacturer first established over 100 years ago, Daimei Plastic is a leading light when it comes to sustainable innovation.

Daimei has had a long relationship with major home appliance manufacturers since the mid-1950s, and has earned their trust. However, today, it has become a company that has earned the trust of not only home appliances, but also automobile manufacturers who are strict about quality. And president Toru Yamaguchi has no doubt that customer satisfaction is at the heart of the firm’s success.

“We regard our ability to meet the demands of our customers as our core competence,” he explains, highlighting how prioritizing the customer has led to the development of magnesium alternative plastics and gas-assisted injection molding technology. Daimei’s status as a top vendor in a number of fields – a status which, in turn, is linked back to the company’s creative output.

We succeeded in significantly reducing the weight by applying gas-assisted injection molding technology in a new way, which has improved the appearance of thick plates with sink marks and dents on the surface.

In addition to B2B products, Daimei has also begun developing and marketing B2C products such as SOEM, which uses environmentally friendly materials, to expand all options.

“Moving forward,” Mr. Yamaguchi says, “we would like to address new markets and have add a third or fourth pillar for our business. To achieve that, we would like to approach and collaborate with various customers, regardless of the size of the company or the length of its history.”  In the future, Daimei intends to strengthen its presence overseas, with Asia and North America as important targets.
