-Aiming to create synergy between the two companies and enhance added value for customers to respond to next-generation vehicles-

Tokiwa Engineering Co., Ltd. (hereafter "Tokiwa Engineering") and Toyotsu Techno Corporation (hereafter "Toyotsu Techno"), wholly-owned subsidiaries of Toyota Tsusho Corporation (hereafter "Toyota Tsusho"), will be integrated in an absorption-type merger into Toyotsu Tech Corporation on April 1, 2018 with Tokiwa Engineering as the surviving company. Through the merger, Toyotsu Tech will strengthen its proposal capability and customer relations for next-generation vehicles and increase its corporate competitiveness.

1. Business of Tokiwa Engineering and Toyotsu Techno

Tokiwa Engineering was established in 1947 and became a wholly-owned subsidiary of Toyota Tsusho in 2012. Tokiwa Engineering has three pillars of businesses. In the “Chemical Products Business,” the company makes a proposal for anticorrosion resin molded products and sealing materials for car air conditioners. In the “FA (factory Automation) Equipment Business,” the company designs and manufactures industry equipment for automated lines. In the “Plant Business,” corrosion resistant and environment friendly equipment is designed, and construction and maintenance services are offered.

Toyotsu Techno, on the other hand, was established in 2010, merging the manufacturing divisions of TEMCO Corporation and Toyotsu Techno Proto Co., Ltd. Toyotsu Techno develops business focusing on the “Prototype and Parts Business,” where the company is commissioned the manufacturing of automobile prototype parts and spare parts, and the “Equipment Business,” where equipment and related devices for automobile production are designed, manufactured and sold.

2. Purpose of the Integration

(1) Greater added-value for customers

Toyotsu Tech will integrate Tokiwa Engineering’s capability to customize its products through its proposal and implementation of automation equipment and maintenance business for various industries with Toyotsu Techno’s manufacturing technology cultivated in the automotive field. In the business field of design and manufacturing that has been taken over from two companies, Toyotsu Tech will produce products with greater added-value for next-generation vehicles.

(2) Establishment of integrated value chain

By integrating the Toyotsu Techno specialized in prototype parts manufacturing and Tokiwa Engineering specialized in mass-production parts manufacturing, Toyotsu Tech will build an integrated value chain from prototype to mass-production. Toyotsu Tech will aim to expand its parts business with an expanded business field and product line up.

(3) Enhanced management resource efficiency

By sharing and mutually using common technologies between the two companies in the development and design field, Toyotsu Tech will enhance its technological capability and raise its management efficiency.
