Rebirth from scorched ruins

Shinmei Industry, which was originally established in 1949 under the name of Koromo Jidosha, grew alongside the rebuilding of Japan following World War II. Once, when the company learned it had run out of parts for sale, the company pulled up and repaired parts submerged in the water during the war and sold the parts. Another time, when the company did not have any vehicles to maintain, the company modified decommissioned passenger vehicles into trucks for sale to revive its car service business. For over 70 years, Shinmei Industry has continually evolved and turned bold and pioneering projects into business.

What are Shinmei's plans for the future?

Shinmei is prepared for a future where gas-powered vehicles are no longer feasible.
As technology advances, traditional cars may eventually become a thing of the past - However, Shinmei is ready to meet this challenge head-on by supporting the development of electric vehicle parts and creating autonomous driving systems with new, innovative technologies. Shinmei's expansion beyond car manufacturing will see the creation of next-generation production line systems that incorporate seamless collaboration between humans and robots. The company's passion for "monozukuri" has been ingrained since its establishment - ensuring that we remain up-to-date with the changing times and never fall behind.

Once-in-a-century period of profound transformation.
