Throughout the years, Noritsu Koki has expanded and grown while continuing to retain and pass down the spirit of manufacturing that was founded in 1951. By welcoming companies with world-class standards of technology and quality into the group, we challenge the world steadily and constantly in manufacturing, which is a key aspect in our society.
The pen tip business boasts the largest market share in the world, handling approximately 3,400 different types a year and selling products in Japan and over 45 foreign countries. The business is renowned for its superior technological development strengths which have made its products highly valued by well-known manufacturers of writing materials. In recent years, we have taken advantage of that technological strength to expand into the development of superfine tubes for the cosmetics industry and advanced medical care. We are also expanding our areas of activity to include the new field of metal injection molding (MIM).
As a professional brush manufacturer, we make effective use of automated bristle manufacturing machinery to stand head and shoulders above the competition in terms of quality and productivity. Having shipped over 200 million brush heads to cosmetic manufacturers including designer brands all over the world, and having earned the trust of major producers of writing materials, we plan to continue the expansion of this business area even further going forward.
