Tounetsu Future
Targeting a global decarbonized society using past experience as an asset
"Since the establishment, Tounetsu has continued to change in response to the trends of the times. At the time of the company's founding, the design process started with two employees using their desks at home, and today it is carried on by many members of the Tounetsu family, not only in Japan but also overseas.
The company's attitude of responding to customers' requests with speed and accuracy has been handed down since its inception. We have been contributing mainly to the automotive industry by utilizing the thermal technologies we have developed over our long history.
we need to build a decarbonized society where nature and people can continue to coexist in harmony with the global environment more than ever.
To this end, we will continue to build an organization that can continue to evolve and contribute to the world without slowing down the pace of development.
