Yachiyo operates its businesses aiming to become a “company recognized and expected by society” through the implementation of Yachiyo Corporate Philosophy.
Yachiyo endeavors to expand the automotive parts production business globally. On the other hand, considering the everlasting development of the company, Yachiyo proceeds with consideration on new businesses utilizing its own technologies and know-how cultivated through the manufacturing of automotive parts etc., aiming to challenge commercialization of a new business other than in the automotive field.
Yachiyo has developed a lightweight “LPG composite cylinder” (LP gas cylinder made from resin) which has excellent durability and which is to be commercialized by applying the production technology of plastic fuel tanks for automobiles.
LP gas cylinders are chiefly made of iron, and are used for residences etc. in Japan and many other countries. In some countries and regions, LP gas is often carried by hand when preparing meals outdoors. In addition, in emerging countries, since governments and gas companies are constructing LP gas supply systems, LP gas use is rapidly spreading among general households.
In view of this spread and the delivery conditions of LP gas in these countries and regions, Yachiyo has developed, in place of conventional cylinders made of iron, an LP gas resin cylinder with high added value, the “LPG composite cylinder”.
Yachiyo exhibited the LPG composite cylinder at the “25th World LP Gas Forum Bali 2012” held in Indonesia from September 11 to 13, 2012, and at the “Asian LP Gas Summit 2013” held in Vietnam from July 3 to 5, 2013. In that exhibition, much interest was turned to Yachiyo.
In the future, Yachiyo will consider the commercialization of the LPG composite cylinder in countries and regions with potential markets, chiefly emerging countries, to offer a product that will be of use to people in such countries and regions.
