100% domestic market share in wiper blade rubbers!
With a technology proven consistent over many years, Fukoku's annual production of wiper blade rubbers now exceeds 200 million. We have an overwhelming share in the domestic market for genuine products (OEM) and about 40% of the international market, making us the No.1 producer worldwide in both quality and quantity.
Our seals are used in automotive brake systems and fuel systems, as well as air intake and exhaust systems, and have captured a large share of the market. We are also developing seals for industrial applications, such as pneumatic tools and industrial machinery.
Using composite technologies for the bonding of rubber and metal, for example, we have developed anti-vibration products to reduce automotive vibration and noise. These anti-vibration products have contributed to a broad range of industries including the automotive, railroad, and construction machinery industries. We are also engaged in other areas, such as ultrasonic motors, where the potential for applications continues to increase.

Steady Progress Since Our Beginnings as a Venture Company Developed a rubber surface treatment for reducing friction in the 1950s!

Eichi Kawamoto, the founder of Fukoku, single-handedly started up Fukoku Rubber Industry Co., Ltd. in 1953. By 1956 Fukoku had already succeeded in developing a rubber surface treatment for wiper blades to reduce friction as a result of its sales work with automobile manufacturers. Riding the wave of motorization at the time, the company grew rapidly and took its first step into the international market. Now, more than half a century later, the Golden Ratio represented by Fukoku's trademark “Φ” has become its motto. Fukoku has kept an eye to the future with a focus on maintaining balance among quality, cost, and delivery, as well as sales, technology, and production.
