The reason that Technical Miyamae has earned the trust of major businesses, such as the aforementioned farming appliance manufacturer, goes beyond the high level of technology they possess. The company also procures raw materials, fills orders for castings and original jigs, and is capable of handling all related tasks, except for cutting processing, in a holistic way. They are also capable of mass production, and have produced 3000 units a month, or 30,000 units a year of certain parts. Many years in the business has given them a keen sense for what additional orders can be expected, and the company is able to predict which materials to keep in stock. Additional orders are subsequently filled with a very short delivery time, leading to an even stronger trust from the clients. From the manufacturer’s perspective, Technical Miyamae offers an amazing situation where the client can hand over the plans, and not have to worry about anything else. There is no doubt that they are a great asset in any partnership.

Technical Miyamae receives a single page of a design from a major farming appliance manufacturer that holds one of top shares in Japan. To the untrained eye, this plan doesn’t even indicate what part of a farming appliance this component will be used for, and the purpose will seem to be a complete mystery. However, for Yasunori Furikawa, the Representative Director President of Technical Miyamae Co., Ltd., all it takes is an instant to get a clear image of the processes of manufacturing, the shape and type of jigs required, difficulty level, and how long the process will take.

The sight of employees standing around with plans discussing processing orders and necessary jigs is a common sight at Technical Miyamae. Although Mr. Furikawa says that this is something anyone who has deeply pursued craftsmanship over the years should be able to do, there is no doubt that Technical Miyamae would be a great partner for any manufacturer. In the process of manufacturing the shift fork for a transmission component made by the company, ideas and advice from the employees resulted in a completely original processing jig that allowed for combining certain processes for improved efficiency.

Professionals, manufacturing transmission parts for farming appliances. Passing on the torch: the long lineage of technology.

Technical Miyamae works in the manufacturing of transmission parts for farming machinery such as tractors, rice transplanters, and combine harvesters. The company’s specialty is the machine processing of shift forks and case covers, as well as machine processing long, shaft shaped products. The company was founded in 1952, and incorporated in 1973. In 2002, the company moved its headquarters to its current location in Sakai-cho, Sakai-city of Fukui Prefecture. While a few veteran technicians decided to retire after the move, their professional techniques and wisdom have been passed down to the remaining employees. Currently, the average age of an employee at this company is thirty-four. This roster of workers also includes trainees from Vietnam.

Technical Miyama currently has 3 trainees from Vietnam on staff, working alongside the Japanese workers. Mr. Furikawa states: “Our company mainly manufactures component parts for farming appliances. In this field, the area that is of interest is Southeast Asia. Receiving technology from overseas, the level of production technology for agricultural products in Southeast Asia has been rising year by year. One of the manufacturers that we work with reports that they sell 4000 to 5000 units of farming equipment yearly, just within Thailand.

Our company has also actively accepted trainees from Vietnam, and we currently have three Vietnamese people on our team. We’ve also had some trainees return home after staying on with us for three years, so we are considering ways of collaborating with them in order to create business relationships within Vietnam.” Mr. Furikawa has also visited Vietnam a few times and has visited the educational facilities for locals who wish to train in Japan. Mr. Furikawa is planning a global business strategy that will start in Vietnam, Singapore, and the rest of South East Asia. The breakout opportunity in Japan to showcase their technology to the world is drawing near.
