Our company was founded in 1947 as the sole manufacturer of washing equipment in Japan, and obtained a dominant patent for a brush rolling washing device. We have since developed and sold various types of washing equipment. We exported Japan's first washing equipment for railway carriages to Egyptian National Railways for the engine depots of Abogatasu Buruzu in 1963, thus establishing our vehicle washing brand. To date, we have exported washing equipment to customers in 18 countries including Singaporean National Railways, Thai National Railways, and Hong Kong Subway. We have also supplied our products to Japan Railways as well as private railway companies throughout Japan. Other firms that have purchased such equipment include Tokyo Monorail Showa-jima Station, World Exposition, and Kitakyushu City. We remain committed to research and development of new models to remain a pioneer in the washing equipment industry.
