Plastic Components (Interior)
Box sub assembly console
It serves mainly as a holder for cups and small items. The recent trend is for console boxes to be equipped with electric outlets, connectors, and other features, so we are developing these products under the concept of console integration.
Registers are important components used as the air duct covers inside vehicles for controlling the cabin environment. We also produce swing registers with fins that move automatically.
Door pockets are included in most vehicles to provide more space in the cabin for holding a large amount of stuff. These are seen and used by most users, and so their quality is carefully scrutinized.
We produce a wide variety of cup holders, including push types. We studied the shapes of plastic bottles around the world and developed a mechanism to keep the bottles from falling over. Cup holders with illumination have appeared recently, and we continue to develop these products to meet user needs.
Assist grips/Long assist grips
People hold onto these grips when riding in vehicles and getting in and out of them. The current trend is for these to be retractable so that they do not stand out. Our molding technology has been highly evaluated by the Japan Society of Polymer Processing (awarded the Japan Society of Polymer Processing "Aoki Katashi" Technical Award).

Decorative parts which are installed from the passenger seat side to the center part of instrumental panel. We pursue quality in its appearance and also sense of touch on the surface in response to customer's needs. Fine beads blended in the paint leads to tiny irregularities that give it a smooth, slick surface.
