Our company has participated actively, focusing on soft capsules, in the medical field as well as food industry ever since our founding to this day. Now, thanks to the support of our customers, we have been establishing a unique position in the same business fields in Japan.
The work of filling soft capsules, which was conducted by hand using a plate method when we started, has now switched to a rotary automatic filling method. In addition, production lines involving other dosage forms such as hard capsules and tablets have been established. We are also involved in the introduction and development of technology.
Now, customer demand has rapidly become complicated and wide-ranging through the diversification of lifestyles. Responding to the demand, we make company-wide efforts in Japan and overseas by taking advantage of excellent technologies and facilities to cope with the needs at different times.
