The finest quality for the highest precision springs

Article - July 25, 2023

Mikuro Spring is a leading spring manufacturer and a pioneer in this field that is now searching for new opportunities in sophisticated industries.

“We want to become a leading company in spring solutions for the semiconductor testing industry."

Takuya Kojima, President, Mikuro Spring Co., Ltd.

When it comes to being a pioneer in the field, look no further than Mikuro Spring, a leading spring processing manufacturer founded in the 1950s. Society has moved on a lot in that time and with it so too has the company, deploying its products successfully in a variety of applications worldwide — including electrical and medical devices, and automotive parts — pulling on joint efforts to achieve its success.

“We do not only rely on our own strength,” explains company president Takuya Kojima, highlighting the world’s smallest superfine springs his company produces. “We also rely on the mutual efforts of our suppliers. We are blessed that we have such good surroundings with a number of companies that complement our technology. It is a combination of many things, with many stages, to reach our level of excellence.”

More collaboration is desired, says Mr. Kojima, particularly with overseas partners.

“We want to expand to the U.S. and Europe by setting up an R&D center to promote our unique technologies and micro spring manufacturing techniques, working with local companies with similar ideas and establishing partnerships through M&A activities. We know this is challenging and timing is crucial.”

With a new plant being built to double the capacity, the outlook for the coming years is bright.

“Our main goal right now is to become a leading global company and I would like to achieve that in the next five years,” says Mr. Kojima. “We want to introduce more of our products and technologies to the world.”
