Exciting & Wonderful KAZUM

KAZUM was initially established in 1946 as a private business that relied upon techniques learned in the old naval dockyards of Kure City.
We have received high praise from our customers for the technical prowess of our Welding, Machine, and Assembly departments, which all have years of experience and a strong track record of reliability.
In 2014, we were selected from among all Mitsubishi Heavy Industries suppliers to receive an Outstanding Supplier Award, solidifying our reputation as a firm with first-class technical prowess.
Two years later, in 2016, we started our thermoforming machine business with the goal of providing an even wider range of services to our clients.
In addition, the company name was changed from "Kawasaki Iron Works Co., Ltd." to "KAZUM Co., Ltd." on May 19, 2021.
Our goal to impress the world with our thermoforming technology while serving as a top-rank supplier to our clients is what fuels our business.
Look forward to Exciting & Wonderful things from KAZUM!
