Message from the President & CEO

Since its founding, Fuso Industries has been involved in pipe processing for air conditioning systems.
We consistently receive high praise from our customers for our ability to accommodate our processes to a wide variety of air conditioning installations, from the residential to commercial scale, and from mass production to high-variety low-volume manufacturing.
Today, new models are being introduced in the residential market at a rapid rate and commercial systems are being used for an extensive range of applications, including computer rooms, intelligent buildings, research laboratories, and automated factory plants, among others.
As time goes on air conditioning needs are becoming increasingly sophisticated and diversified, and consequently the demand for higher performance pipe arrangements is on the rise.
In its supportive role within the air conditioning industry, Fuso Industries pursues tireless self-improvement by continuously assimilating knowledge and persistently increasing its technical capabilities in order to meet customer standards for cost, delivery, and product quality.
Additionally, we aim to further contribute to the businesses of our customers by occasionally submitting innovative proposals that utilize the expertise we have obtained from our high-variety low-volume manufacturing process.
Moving forward, I hope we will continue to enjoy the support and guidance we receive from our customers.

President & CEO Jiro Kuno

Employee Welfare

We support more than just manufacturing.

Our employees get along well, and even have their own sports clubs to refresh themselves. Currently we have a baseball club, a tennis club, and a golf club where they enjoy recreational activities.
We support employee health and welfare via an open communication policy, and the creation of these clubs are one of the results of that.

We also organize events with the families of our employees,
so that we and they may have a place to openly communicate with each other.
