We have been bringing the best happiness to our customers with our products since the establishment of our company in 1964.We, Marubishi Company have been refining our technological capabilities with this kind of mindset to make automobile seats that combine the highest levels of safety and comfort. The seats of the famous 4WD car "Mitsubishi Pajero" were 100% made by Marubishi Industry, which has been used by people from more than 170 countries and regions. Our reliable technology is highly evaluated by our customers around the world.
The automobile seat is composed of three parts: (1) a frame that serves as a skeletal frame, (2) a foam pad that acts as a cushion, and (3) a trim cover that comes into direct contact with the human body. Marubishi Industry has professional skills and arrangement in the production process of all parts. We are able to complete all processes related to production in our own factory. We also have a system in place, during the pre-production stage from design to development, and after production stage until inspection.
The completed automobile seats are delivered to our automobile manufacturer business partners. The work of attaching to the car body is carried out there, and a car is completed. We are particular about the delivery method at Marubishi Industry in order to reduce the work of our partner manufacturers. We make load the truck arrangement in the same way based on the work procedure of the car manufacturer, we have established a ranking order system jointly with our partner automobile manufacturers. Our partners just unload their luggage and attach it to the car body. We have received high praise from our customers, they usually mention that our work method helps them to eliminate wasteful work and to save labours` time.
The staff silently work on the production line, which is the final process of seat manufacturing. When we talk about modern factories, automation is common. Of course, mechanization is progressing in the factory of Marubishi Industry, but only the final and important part of manufacturing is done by hands. The reason is that costumers touch on a seat for the longest time among other car parts, therefore we want to finish it by our hands. Our staff carefully make high quality seats one by one who inherited the cultivated craftsmanship since establishment.
