Koiwai Co., Ltd. introduced the 3D metal powder additive manufacturing method in 2012, and established Japan’s first AM service bureau. It has since worked to popularize and refine this technology, and to create a market for it.
Five years on, 3D metal powder AM technology—which it is said will give rise to a manufacturing revolution—is no longer the stuff of dreams, but is now the target of great hopes and expectations in various industries as an indispensable technology in the field of manufacturing, and developments towards the manufacture of actual products have become increasingly active.
In order to answer to the expectations of the market, we have established JAMPT Corporation, through the combined strengths of three key partners: Sojitz Corporation, with its total capabilities as a sogo shosha; Tohoku University, with its academic knowledge; and Koiwai Co., Ltd. with its manufacturing technology. JAMPT is a company that can compete not only in the Japanese market, but also in the global marketplace.
Please continue to maintain high expectations with regard to our future endeavors.
In establishing JAMPT Corporation, we received all manner of support from numerous supporters, including the Reconstruction Agency, Miyagi Prefecture, and Tagajo City. I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincere gratitude to you all. Thank you very much indeed. JAMPT will continue working hard to become a company that can live up to all of your expectations and contribute to the advancement of local communities, and to society as a whole.
We ask for your continued support and guidance in the future. Thank you.
