Company Information

Contributing to people, lifestyles, and society with exceptional technology and creativity

With "SEI" meaning the human heart and precision and "KO" meaning refined techniques, KUMANOSEIKO is an integrated manufacturer of everything from dies to parts, which aims to create the foundations of a richer society via various thoughts and wishes for people based on our unique culture and history.

The dies and injection molded parts that we send out into the world are not seen in our everyday lives and may be small and uninteresting. However, when seen from the macroscopic perspective of society at large, the role that each die plays and the possibilities found within each part are surely much larger.
High quality dies create high quality products, which in turn lead to high quality lifestyles. Rather than simply making things, we want to create a certain future.
KUMANOSEIKO aims to achieve the rich lifestyles of tomorrow by providing expertise regarding dies and manufacturing.
