Realized stable supply by factory automation
SHOWA further established its place in the hand protection industry by achieving 24 hours of production in an unattended factory. This was initially established in our NIBUNO factory in Japan. Then, applying lessons learned and the SHOWA methodology, our manufacturing expanded to Malaysia, Vietnam, and Myanmar in Asia as well five manufacturing facilities in the Americas. SHOWA’s strict controls and innovative processes enable our ability to manufacture high-quality products with both consistency and stability. One of the many manufacturing innovations is locating in our Malaysian facility. Our engineers installed state-of-the art robotics developed by intellectual technology which led to greater efficiency while relieving the need for difficult human labor.
