The plating experts guided by a firm commitment to sustainability

Article - May 28, 2023

A company that looks beyond the short term, OM Sangyo boasts state-of-the-art surface-treatment technologies that can respond to the needs of a whole host of industries.

“We focus on the sustainable growth of our employees and technology, and securing the continuity of the business.”

Keitaro Namba, President, OM Sangyo Co., Ltd.

The OM Group has an 80-year history and is divided into three main business segments: manufacturing and sales of automotive parts; manufacturing and sales of office products (OA floors, free access floors etc.) and welfare equipment, metal, and plastic 3D printer-based manufacturing; and surface treatment, mainly metal plating. OM Sangyo is responsible for the surface treatment business of the group.

OM Sangyo is engaged in "functional plating," which imparts or enhances functions such as heat resistance, wear resistance, and electrical conductivity. The company is also taking on the challenge of enabling plating on materials that are difficult to plate, such as ceramics, carbon, and glass.

OM Sangyo is committed to continuous technological improvement – a drive that led it to establish its Surface Finishing Institute, a dedicated R&D facility, in 2013.

 “We can move forward as long as we keep pursuing innovation,” says President Keitaro Namba.

Having opened a Thai subsidiary in 2015, OM Sangyo is also eyeing advancement in the form of international growth.

However, he stresses that OM Sangyo’s pursuit of progress is centered on the long-term development of the company and its workforce, rather than chasing short-term gains: “We focus on the sustainable growth of our employees and technology, and securing the continuity of the business.

 “We want our employees to be happy and enjoy working with us. We’ve helped some to obtain PhDs. This doesn’t directly contribute to enhancing our technology, but it’s a good motivator. We want to be a company where both people and technology can grow sustainably.”
