- About Us
Greetings from the president
TOKYO R&D Composite Industry Co.,Ltd. started out with research and development of practical technologies of carbon-fiber composite material in 1982 and began supplying to motorsports division of automobile makers. Since then we expanded in the fields of aerospace, robotics, environmental energy, medical sports equipment and recently broke new ground in the fields of designer furniture and artwork highlighting the esthetic surface of CFRP. We have been striving to make a contribution to society through manufacturing technology of diverse products.
At the beginning of our journey, we were faced with many challenges with unstable quality of the working material. We worked very hard with the material makers to improve and stabilize the quality of what we use. All that effort is now paid off and materials come ready in excellent quality and nowadays even automated lay-up and molding can be an option for some products.
With the implementation of a start-to-finish production system, which encompasses planning to design proposal, elaborate analysis, production, testing and evaluation as necessary, we are capable of offering services in prototype making and small-scale production and certainly mass-market products as well. By boldly yet rationally combining multiple materials we continue to innovate new technologies and products towards an ever-changing society where demands for diversified use of composite products are on the rise.
With innovative ideas backed with logical thinking and intuitions of skilled professionals, we as a team will endeavor to make all-out effort to produce Global Niche Top products. We sincerely thank you for your continuous support and understanding.
