DMC contributes to the growth of the region and society through the manufacture of reliable touch screens.
Achieving stable growth in the industrial equipment industry
Prioritizing the stable supply of products
Touch screens are classified into two major types. One is the resistive touch screen that finds broad application across many industries, and the other is capacitive touch screens, whose market has seen rapid growth due to the popularization of smart phones. DMC manufactures both types. It has a long history of resistive touch screens that offer excellent technical capability, and its capacitive touch screens have become increasingly popular. These are a strong competitor in the large-size market, which gives DMC potential for continued expansion.
DMC manufacturing sites in Fukushima were significantly damaged in the Great East Japan Earthquake. The damage interrupted business at the Fukushima Plant (in Hirono-machi, Futaba-gun) and forced us to move operations to our base in Shirakawa. Helping to mitigate the damage caused by the earthquake was the DMC manufacturing base in Indonesia established in the 1990s to disperse risks and prevent critical damage. DMC exports 40% of its total production to major countries in Europe, Asia, and North America, and we have established trusting relationships with these markets by ensuring the stable supply of touch screens required in their final products. Keeping this in mind, we exert our best effort to maintaining a reliable system that enables business continuity and reinforces both domestic and overseas supply chains to satisfy customer needs.
