Zippertubing Japan: Supporting the creation of cutting-edge tech with reliable EMI countermeasures, cable bundling and anti-heat solutions
Shiro Takeuchi, President, Zippertubing Japan, Ltd.
A subsidiary of Kohyei Trading, Zippertubing Japan is a manufacturer that works with companies from a range of industries, supplying them with electromagnetic-interference (EMI) countermeasures; wire and cable bundling; heat shrink; and heat shielding.
The firm boasts particular expertise in crafting high-quality products that are used by customers in the semiconductor-manufacturing sector.
Having last year celebrated its 50th anniversary, Zippertubing Japan has marked the milestone by opening a new, state-of-the-art production site in Kobe, where the company is based. “It’s three times larger than our existing factory,” President Shiro Takeuchi explains. “In terms of floor size, it’s twice as large as the previous factory.”
“We have products that have been used since our foundation, as well as products developed in the past five or 10 years. Currently, we’re working on new products to cater to existing and new markets. That’s why we’ve established a new factory.”
As part of its drive for innovative creations, Zippertubing Japan will be teaming up with its parent company to develop a product that harnesses both firms’ know-how.
“Kohyei Trading has its strengths, particularly in its relationships with automotive manufacturers,” Mr. Takeuchi explains. “On the other hand, we at Zippertubing Japan excel in manufacturing and have strong connections to semiconductor machinery companies.
“In line with the shift towards electric vehicles (EVs), we’re aiming to leverage the strengths of both entities by creating a new product specifically tailored to the EV market. We hope to achieve this within three years and are in the R&D phase right now. It’s Zippertubing Japan’s semiconductor expertise combined with Kohyei Trading’s automotive experience.”
