The knowledge, technology, and quality of graphite that we have cultivated over the years are supported by many customers around the world as a wide variety of products for small motors used in automobiles, power tools, home appliances, etc., as well as for large motors used in factories.

Our company’s mission is to “support rotation and create movement”. As a specialist in the carbon brush manufacturers, we will make a company-wide effort to create more convenience for the world through our carbon brushes and graphite, and to provide better quality and service.
