Partnering opportunity

Japanese metalworking company offers cost-efficient manufacturing services and is looking for sales agents in the EU


The Japanese company's metal forming based services span from machining to finishing process, and from trial production to the production of small batches with manufacturing costs and time that could be reduced 4 times compared to similar services providers. Sales representative are also sought to develop the company's presence in the EU. A manufacturing agreement, subcontracting agreement or commercial agency agreement will be achieved with relevant partners.

Partner sought

The ideal partner should be operating in the fields of manufacturing metal prototypes for Computerised Numerical Control, machinery, medical devices, cars, robots, or research & development. The partner should be looking for subcontracting or manufacturing services for the manufacturing of high quality prototypes using die-less forming technology in non-mass production quantities. As for the sales representative partner it should have a wide network in the above listed sectors as well as knowledge about metalworking manufacturing. The Japanese company is looking for a long-term cooperation with interested EU partners.


The Japanese company was found in 1963 and is specialised in the manufacturing of various parts and components from steel, stainless steel and aluminium (through the usage of metal forming). The company offers highly qualified metal parts manufactured using an innovative original metal forming technology which is also cost-efficient. These parts are used for prototypes in industrial applications, machinery, robot manufacturing, car manufacturing, medical and electrical fields. The company fabricates parts and individual components from sheet metal by laser cutting, bending, welding and possesses modern machinery equipment. The service spans from machining to finishing process, and from trial production to the production of small batches as well. The company supports partners during experimentation, researching, testing, and the proofing stages of the development of the product. They are flexible and ready to manufacture any complex part on a short-term basis. The Japanese company has experience in manufacturing brackets for the car industry (various types and parts), spanners in medical field (for heart pumps), and is now doing research into the construction of a new space micro-satellite which is set to be launched in 3 years. The company is looking for partners in the EU under a manufacturing agreement or in the form of a subcontracting service. They are also looking for sales representatives under a commercial agency agreement. The company aims to build a new network of connections with companies who are interested in the production of prototypes with advanced specifications.

Advantages and innovations

The Japanese company offers its advanced manufacturing of prototypes made using their own original technology. The end-result is a product manufactured without using any die or mould in metal forming. This makes it possible to reduce the cost and time of manufacturing. Compared with other manufacturers, cost and time could be reduced by almost 4 times. The prototypes manufactured by the Japanese company have high precision, despite being manufactured without a die. Steel, stainless steel, aluminium and materials such as titanium/magnesium and some alloys can also be processed. The possible thickness of prototype materials range from 0.1 mm - 3.2 mm. The company is able to manufacture complex forms and continue to be very flexible even during the testing and proofing period which makes it possible for the EU partner to easily modify new models of prototypes when it is necessary to do so.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
