Times have changed.When and how much you need

Just-in-time, aiming to reduce inventory and minimize production costs

In order to quickly respond to diverse and urgent needs, we have adopted a production system that produces only what is needed, when it is needed. We reduce inventory risk and increase efficiency, completely eliminating waste, unevenness, and strain at the production site to produce only high-quality products. By producing only the amount that is taken over by the subsequent process, streamlining the process, and determining the line takt according to the required quantity, great benefits are created for both parties.


All environments/equipment necessary for manufacturing are in one place

Our production system consists of three manufacturing plants for metal processing, sheet metal/assembly, and die-casting molds, as well as a quality control system that provides stable and consistent quality control, all in one location.
We provide value-added manufacturing that is only possible because we provide one-stop support.

Accompanying scrum-type manufacturing

Outsource your company’s manufacturing department

Customers with “planning” and “sales power” and our company with “manufacturing skills”.
At our company, manufacturing professionals can accompany customers and support each other as “the same team” to create products, and we call it “scrum-type manufacturing.”

Our company’s motto is to “break away from a subcontracting structure,” and we recognize that we are an integral part of a company’s manufacturing department. We strive to provide proposals that benefit both companies and respond in a detailed manner. All of the know-how, technology, and equipment that we have cultivated over the years are with our customers. We have everything necessary for commercialization, including factory power, proposal power, design power, mass production power, prototyping, verification, trial assembly, product management, and feedback from field professionals who actually touch the products.

Furthermore, we flexibly utilize the “Higashiosaka Network,” a horizontal network that transcends the boundaries of industry, which is unique to the factory town of Higashiosaka. We work together with our customers to achieve the same goal and fulfill our mission as a manufacturing factory.


[Build To Order] type contract production system that leads the manufacturing industry

Build To Order

Build To Order

BTO (Build To Order) is a production method in which products are manufactured according to customer orders.
By reusing parts that we own, we can reduce the initial investment and avoid the customer’s finished product inventory risk.

BTO type contract production
to reduce investment costs

Realization of product development with reduced investment costs by using Seiko SCM’s PB parts

Do you think it’s a long process to develop a new product?
Of these, the one that requires the most initial investment is “mold investment.” Normally, it takes time and money to mass-produce parts, but if you use parts that we own for that part, you can completely solve the problem.

In particular, regarding lighting fixtures, which we are focusing on, we have various types of lighting fixture parts manufactured under the PB lighting brand “NEEL” and molds we have invested in in the past. Lighting equipment is composed of a combination of various parts such as the light source, power supply, and the equipment itself. Customers can combine and reuse the parts and only invest in the missing parts. At our company, we have adopted a built-to-order contract manufacturing system in which we manufacture (=build) according to orders.

Characteristics of BTO type contract production
○ Initial investment can be reduced by reusing our own parts
○ Development speed is fast
○ Verification guaranteed (LED module temperature inspection, fixture light distribution measurement, etc.)
○ Fulfillment system from assembly to delivery
Our company, which owns manufacturing functions from sheet metal factories to assembly factories, achieves “shorter delivery times for prototypes and mass-produced final products” through “contract manufacturing” that takes into account inventory risk avoidance rather than inventory.
In this day and age where market trends and changes are rapid, we believe it is important to reduce initial investment and inventory holdings, and to establish a speedy development and production system.

What Morimitsu SCM
thinks about in order to continue protecting Japanese manufacturing

Shift change to domestic production

Shift change to domestic production

Production system that takes advantage of overseas and domestic advantages

Both overseas and domestic production have their advantages and disadvantages.
In that case, it would be an efficient and stable procurement method to use overseas and domestic sources depending on the characteristics of the product/parts and the number of lots.
The biggest risk in commercializing a product is inventory.

Overseas production usually requires production in large lots.
Overseas production is prone to a vicious cycle of large lots → unsold or defective products → remaining inventory → waste.
The optimal solution is to shift the final stage to domestic production = avoid inventory risk.
We believe that it is an efficient and stable manufacturing method to use overseas and domestic products depending on the characteristics of products and parts and the number of lots.

In other words, domestic factories with manufacturing skills will be responsible for procuring overseas parts and maintaining quality, and manufacturers will switch their final procurement source to Japan.
This makes it possible to stabilize product quality and reduce inventory risk.
Additionally, having the final product made in JAPAN will increase the reliability of the product from users.
Since our company handles environmental testing, we can also provide product warranties.

Parts that require large lots will continue to be produced overseas, while other parts will be produced domestically.
There are tremendous benefits for customers, domestic factories, and environmental issues.

Domestic production Overseas production

Management cost low high

Deadline Fast | Stable Unstable | Country risk
Responsiveness fast | safe Instability | Cultural differences

Do we have to protect domestic manufacturing plants?
“Impression” is necessary to protect the industry and pass it on to future generations

A few years after I, Kusaba, became the representative, I received advice from many people saying, “Now is the time to set up manufacturing bases overseas.”
At that time, I didn’t know the manufacturing industry yet, so I wondered if that was the case.
However, although the conditions and environment for setting up a new manufacturing base were good, no matter how many times I visited, I could not make the decision to say, “Okay, let’s go!”

“Did I become president to keep making cheap products forever?”
“For whom and for what purpose do I do business, even though the small factories in Japan are weakening?”
It was an event that made me think about it again.At that time, I came to one conclusion.
“Going overseas is a risk. Staying in Japan is a risk. So which risk should I take?” Without hesitation, I chose the latter.

Growth of the industry before growth of the company! I want to grow with all Japanese companies!
I kept questioning myself and realized my true feelings.
In order to grow the industry, there is no other way than to pass on as much Japanese technology as possible to future generations.
Isn’t “impression” necessary to connect to posterity?
“Impression” is what attracts people, creates admiration, and becomes a vocation for that person.

However, the aging of craftsmen with high skills is progressing. Hurry up or it will be too late.
Rather than competing with overseas companies, we pursue manufacturing that is uniquely Japanese.
I think that we, who are close to us, should become more aware of the treasures of our own country.

That’s why I’m particular about “made in Japan” that creates excitement. 署名
