atect is a company composed of three different businesses.
In the semiconductor material business, we have a greater than 70% share in the manufacture of the spacer tape that protects the LSI, the most important part in flat-panel displays (FPDs) that are typical of liquid-crystal-display TVs. In the sanitary inspection equipment business, we make direct sales of microbial test equipment to 14,000 domestic business customers, primarily the petri dishes and culture mediums used in safety standards inspections for manufacturers of food and medicine. We have grown to become an indispensable supplier for global television manufacturing and the global food industry.
In addition, we have taken up injection molding of metals and ceramics as a new challenge, and succeeded in creating shapes and using materials that were not possible with previous processing methods by developing our own proprietary powder injection molding (PIM) technology. To allow us to grow PIM products as our third business, by manufacturing mechanical parts for automotive turbo parts, semiconductor-related equipment and machine tools via this PIM method, in 2017 we left Osaka, where we were founded, and obtained a new premises on an expansive site in Higashi-omi City, Shiga Prefecture.
