Ueno Co. Ltd. noise filter coil has the highest domestic market share.
Coils are important electronic parts which eliminate noise and prevent malfunctions. They are essential parts for all electronic products such as computers, refrigerators, and even in industrial facilities. In 2007, Ueno Co. Ltd., a company manufacturing coils, has the achievement of being the world’s first firm to mass-produce toroidal coils by automation. Also, the company is deeply associated with car makers in developing new cars, which have been improving its control devices.
From the leader of the Mikawa factory, Toshiharu Chonan: The demand for coils is increasing year by year. We are aiming to acquire the highest international market share by offering our in-house developed product, “Ueno Coil”, which has better quality and is smaller in size than any other coils. We welcome groups such as school students for tours of our factory.
