Remembering that “today’s best is tomorrow’s worst,” we contribute to the ongoing developments and breakthroughs of our customers

Meichu Co., Ltd. has developed its business around our core of development, manufacturing and sales of casting equipment to include comprehensive sales of casting equipment supplies.
The Homel Furnace we developed in 1982 was the first local melting furnace in the world to not use a crucible. Our broad lineup of assorted products and services is the result of revolutionary innovation and advances to keep pace with the changing times by faithfully listen to the needs of our customers.

In addition to furnaces, we develop full automation systems for material loading and are working towards carbon neutral unmanned casting factories to contribute more to our customers and the environment.

Representative Director and President, Mitsukane NAKASHIMA


By preparing an environment that supports the growth of our employees
Meichu seeks manufacturing progress

I think the most important part of a business is its people.
Unless the people in an organization grow, a company cannot grow.
That is why my job is providing an environment that helps employees to freely exchange ideas, expand their skills and continue to grow.
Meichu has been blessed with personnel with a wide range of skills and knowledge irrespective of their job type including sales, technology and manufacturing. Our customers have given us their trust as these employees have demonstrated their motivation, ability to rapidly respond and provide solutions as needed.
Today we are advancing projects to promote carbon neutrality with the cooperation of veteran and newer employees to open new doors of opportunity through diligent work.
It is my desire to see Meichu develop as we pay careful attention to the health and happiness of our employees and their families even as we support their personal growth.

Executive Director Hisaaki NAKASHIMA
