Story

Shinwa Rules Co., Ltd. was established in 1971 by the integration of three measuring instrument manufacturers: Watanabe Doki Seisakusho, Hanyu Keiki and Watasei Doki Seisakusho. At that time, the primary concern was enhancing the productivity of our manufacturing plants in anticipation of a rapid increase in production volume due to Japan’s dramatic economic growth. For that reason, they installed automated plating machinery and extended manufacturing plants. They also installed a wastewater treatment facility to make sure hazardous materials did not leak out with our discharged water; Shinwa were an eco-conscious corporation even back then.
