About Us

On March 9th, 1955, MARKTEC’s predecessor, TOKUSHUTORYO Corporation was established in Omori, Ota-ku, Tokyo, amidst a collection of many small factories functioning as a hub of innovation and activity. During this period, TOKUSHUTORYO researched, manufactured and sold fluorescent pigments and paints.During this time in the aviation industry, non-destructive fluorescent chemical testing was being used in the manufacturing and repairing of airplanes. TOKUSHUTORYO saw a bright future this field beyond the aviation industry and soon after, began researching and manufacturing new non-destructive testing products. In 1964 in Yokosuka City, Kanagawa Prefecture, TOKUSHUTORYO’s Kurihama factory was completed and began manufacturing magnetic, fluorescent powder. That factory anchored TOKUSHUTORYO’s growth and was its base of technological growth and manufacturing for many years.
Message from MARKTEC’s President & CEO

Since its foundation in 1955 as a manufacturer of flaw detection agents, our group of companies has grown to manufacture a complete range of nondestructive inspection and marking equipment while continuing to offer state of the art solutions that accurately meet a wide range of customer needs. Our commercialization expertise has enabled us to develop and offer innovative products that utilize our mechanical, electrical and chemical technology skills. We possess a comprehensive range of solutions to meet a wide range of customer needs as a manufacturer of diverse surface flaw detection and marking equipment and related consumables. Because of our reliable after-sales service that eliminates customer concerns about integrating our products with their production lines, we have established a unique presence in the Japanese market while steadily growing in tandem with the manufacturing sector in Japan. None of these achievements would have been possible without the close support of our customers, shareholders and many other business partners, for which we are sincerely grateful. The market for nondestructive inspection equipment is expected to grow steadily, particularly in the Asia-Pacific region, buoyed in part by increasing global awareness of safety and reliability which will expand applications beyond the conventional customer base into new types of equipment and facilities. The market for marking equipment is also expected to stay robust as emerging markets need more diverse steel products with sophisticated specifications, and so these materials must be accurately marked in the manufacturing process. Our group has been building a foothold in the rapidly growing Chinese market, as well as Korea and Southeast Asian nations including Thailand and Indonesia, and other emerging markets. Going forward, we will continue to work hard to be one of the world’s leading groups specializing in nondestructive inspection and marking by swiftly establishing organizations for strategically expanding our presence overseas and carrying out our business properly using these channels. In March 2015, we reached the milestone of our 60th year since our foundation. The fundamental principle for our group will continue to be “providing security and safety to society through quality assurance.” We will strive to survive long-term in the manufacturing industry, seeking rewards in being appreciated by our customers. We are not afraid of change; rather, we thrive on change. We will keep increasing our ingenuity, remain committed to creating new technologies and products and, by offering top-quality, reliable products and services, we hope to contribute to our customers throughout the world. We would appreciate your continued support and business.

President & CEO Mr.Keigo NISHIMOTO
