■Company Outline

AIWA manufactures plastic boards that replace timber materials. The company achieves the extrusion molding of synthetic resins at an arbitrary forming factor. The products are used as cushioning materials and partition boards for their excellent impact resistance, wear resistance, corrosion resistance, washability and processing properties.

■Main Products

Synthesized wood building materials, "Dura Wood" was developed to meet customer needs by foaming polyethylene, polystyrene, and polypropylene (approximately 1.25 to 2.5 fold). "Dura Wood" is used in buffer materials for automobiles, in buffer/heat insulation materials for interiors used in freezer/insulation/dry van trucks, and in building materials.
"Dura Wood" has a number of features: lightweight, smooth shape, robustness, high-precision, beauty, excellent workability, water-resistance, chemical-resistance, heat and sound insulating properties.
We have been increasing our market share and solving conventional problems of wood building materials for over 30 years.

■Core Competence

“Dura Wood” is able to extrude synthesized resin foam in irregular shapes, depending on customer needs.
While our main competitors are large companies such as “K” and “L” (although it is a niche industry), we hold 70% market share because of our timely and flexible systems that satisfy customer needs.
Aiwa is promoting a project to achieve three goals: “obtaining new customers,” “entering new areas,” and “developing new products and technologies.” Our aim is to continue to be the leading company, ensuring 30% of all sales in the industry.
