Wood comes in a variety of shapes, including planks, squares, and round bars.
Each of these shapes has a wide range of material thicknesses, so advanced processing techniques are required.
In Koyoju plywood, we pay attention to every detail in order to deliver "excitement" and beautifully finished products.
In the area of Koyoju plywood, we have introduced a new type of automatic dowel punching machine and NC router in order to mechanize and automate the process as the supply volume increases. As a result, we have been able to significantly increase our production volume.
We also have one of the few special machines in our possession, and with the special processing technology that we utilize, the products that we have created, such as roughstep, veneers, and store fixtures, have reached all over Japan.
We search for the needs of our customers, plan for product development, repeat trial production, and then delight our customers. We are able to respond to a wide range of requests because we are able to plan, design, manufacture, and construct products in an integrated manner.

A tsukiita is a piece of wood that has been sawn from a log and sliced into thin strips. The principle is the same as shaving dried bonito flakes, for example. It is used in various ways and has been an essential part of people｀s living environment since ancient times.
Since the wood is natural, no two pieces are the same, and you can enjoy the various grain patterns and colors depending on the purpose of use.
Although it takes a lot of work to produce the same kind of wood, we are very happy when we see the veneers we produced in public places or commercial facilities. We feel that natural wood veneer is a product that can be enjoyed and healed by touching it.
Since long ago, humans have been enriching their lives and feeling happy by making things.
From an early age, we naturally experience the basics of making things, such as coloring, cutting, and stacking. The sense of accomplishment and joy that we feel in this process can be said to be a latent ability that we have had since long ago.
Manufacturing is still a job where people play a leading role.
Only human hands can notice and correct the small errors that cannot be read from a drawing or made by a machine alone. At the end of each process, I make sure to see with my eyes and touch with my skin, and imagine how the product will look in the hands of the customer. The time we spend immersed in the production process is filled with a sense of elation that is hard to describe. We will continue to change in order to maintain quality and meet the demands of our clients, with our first priority being to "face manufacturing from the standpoint of the customer.
I also want to pass on the joy of craftsmanship to as many future generations as possible. I want to convey the appeal of knowing that someday your creations will be in our daily lives, somewhere making someone else smile.
Monozukuri begins with the creation of people.
I want to continue the fun and charm of "monozukuri" that has been around for a long time with the hands of people.
That is my wish.
KOYOJU Plywood Corporations has started accepting technical interns from Indonesia as part of its global business expansion.
The trainees learn their jobs at an amazing speed in an unfamiliar Japanese life, and they work hard even though they are confused by the machines and tools they see for the first time and the unfamiliar Japanese. While being stimulated by that posture, I give guidance by matching the eyes one by one.
The trainees learn to make things by hand, and learn to operate the machines that are necessary in the process. Of course, we also operate the latest machines at the same time.
With the progress of IOT, it is possible to manufacture products through the network from a place far away from Japan. We expect that the trainees will learn a lot in Japan, return to their home countries, and become a great force in the same team of KOYOJU Plywood Corporations.
