About Yamada Giken
We create the happiness (YUKI) from the snow (YUKI).
(“YUKI” has two meanings in Japanese.)
Anticipate the needs of society with technology and thinking. How can we respond to manufacturing and what can we propose to society?
Since our founding, we have pursued the theme of “energy and resource conservation and the twin goals of safety and security in snow melting” with the objective of “the challenge of new technologies to overcome the social and environmental problems of snow and ice on roads”.
The challenge is to systematize technologies and products in the fields of nature, environment, transportation and information in order to create new needs and to increase the value of individual technologies and products in the total context of resource conservation, energy saving, new energy and harmony with nature and the environment. In order to achieve this, we must continue to take on the challenge of research and development in the near future.
Our motto is “Providing optimum solutions for winter traffic control,” and we will continue to grow in the era of change with our passionate desire to provide “optimum solutions” not only to Japan but to the world.
