Since the company went under the umbrella of the Nitto Kohki Group in April 2000, it has been playing a role as a production base for door closers and electric screwdrivers. Our primary production items include the Nitto Kohki’s original armless door closer, namely "AUTO-HINGE" series, as well as the world-famous electric screwdriver, "delvo" series, are widely used in society. We completed construction of an office building in 2016 and began production of machines and tools.
