From advanced, low-cost products for SMEs around the world to human resource recruitment and development, Handa Heavy Industrial goes above and beyond in support of its clients.
“Handa Heavy Industrial’s goal is to become a global company that attracts people, goods, and information from around the world.“
Akitaka Niimi, President, Handa Heavy Industrial Co., Ltd.
Founded in 1937, Handa Heavy Industrial provides AI and IoT products and services for small and medium-sized businesses around the world, and is willing to actively promote cross-border transactions, not only locally in Japan.
“Japan's manufacturing industry remains among the world's best in terms of concentration, diversity, and sales scale,” explains company president Akitaka Niimi. “On the other hand, the country, like other developed nations, is struggling with a declining birthrate and an aging population, resulting in an aging workforce.
“This means that Japan's manufacturing industry has a great need for automation and human resource recruitment, and its growth potential is immeasurable, with products and services for this industry a promising opportunity. Therefore we developed a new Image Inspection Systems and Factor X recruiting service.”
The company manufactures hydraulic cylinders for forklifts and mainly supplies these to TOYOTA L&F, which has the world's highest market share. In addition to the cylinders, it is currently working on the development of electric pumps and considering proposing a total solution for the entire hydraulic unit.
Turning to his next midterm strategy plan, Mr. Niimi concludes that “There is much more ahead for us, so we will continue to work hard to reach our new goals for the company,” adding, “I deeply appreciate all our employees.”
