Press Release

Completed construction of the first private steel hardware manufacturing and galvanizing factory in Myanmar

14.11.2016

Futami Communications & Engineering Co., Ltd. (Matsudo City, Chiba Prefecture, Managing Director, Fumio Nakai) has jointly established Futami Mega Engineering Co., Ltd. In the Republic of the Union of Myanmar (hereinafter, "Myanmar").The first private steel hardware manufacturing and galvanizing factory in Myanmar will be completed in the spring of 2017. The newly constructed factory will contribute to the rapid increase of local infrastructure such as electric power by providing Japanese quality products to meet local demand.

Until now, in Myanmar, only one government-affiliated company (MEC) can perform galvanizing, and it has been unable to meet the market demand for infrastructure development both quantitatively and qualitatively. For this reason, in general, inferior quality Chinese-made hardware and painted products are distributed, and there are many products such as utility pole mounting hardware that have peeled off the paint and plating and rusted, and there is no good supplier of products. It was also a source of trouble for Japanese companies.

At our new factory, we will be responsible for the production of Japanese-quality galvanized hardware with the technical support of Iwabuchi Co., Ltd. (Matsudo City, Chiba Prefecture), which is one of the largest manufacturer of overhead-wire hardware in Japan. We are fully equipped with water treatment facilities and employee dormitories to create employment and transfer technology locally. In this way, we will support the manufacturing industry that has expanded into Myanmar from various countries including Japan, and contribute to the improvement of the quality of infrastructure equipment and the technology of the manufacturing industry in Myanmar, where industrialization has begun.

The first private hot-dip zinc plating and hardware processing factory in Myanmar will be completed in the spring of 2017.

The newly constructed Myanmar factory will contribute to the rapid increase of local infrastructure such as electric power by providing Japanese quality products to meet local demand.

Present

Present

Since there are few plating factories, most of the hardware is painted. Many of the paints are peeled off and rusted, which not only looks bad, but also has low durability.

Future

Future

When we start the construction service in Myanmar, we have decided to produce galvanized hardware that looks good and has excellent durability. We will endeavor to popularize excellent hardware.
