Material Handling Is Our Core Business
Since 1937, Daifuku has focused on material handling – the movement of finished goods and work in progress. Our world-class systems lead the industry by combining conveying, storage, sorting, picking and controls. Our products serve customers in a range of industries and countries.
Material handling plays a role in virtually every aspect of industry.
Daifuku's roots lie in automotive factory automation (AFA) with chain conveyers during the advent of motorization. AFA operations, factory and distribution automation (FADA), cleanroom factory automation for semiconductor and flat panel displays (eFA), and airport baggage handling (ABH) represent Daifuku's four core business divisions. In addition, Daifuku has developed car wash machines and unique equipment to improve communities. Daifuku subsidiary Contec, which is listed on the Second Section of Tokyo Stock Exchange, supplies electronics.
Employing Comprehensive Capabilities – Consulting to Service
As a leading material handling manufacturer, Daifuku's mission is to develop unique cutting-edge systems for each customer. Our recent achievements include the creation of a distribution center compatible with supply chain management and transport systems in cleanrooms for manufacturing semiconductors and flat panel displays.
Daifuku assists customers from planning to proposal, design, manufacturing, installation, after-sales service and facility retrofits.
We are a global company with non-Japanese sales accounting for 50% of total sales. By strategically locating production and procurement operations world-wide and by collaborating closely with our global network of affiliate companies and branch offices, we provide complete customer support on a global scale.
