The logistics business
There is a high demand for expertise in logistics solutions throughout industry as a means of efficiently focusing corporate resources on core business. Furukawa Logistics Corporation, carrying out its mission to provide logistics support for Group companies, has accumulated know-how and expertise that ensure the provision of optimal logistics solutions to suit the challenges and needs of corporations.
The information processing and software development business
We develop and operate a variety of network systems, not limited to the Furukawa Electric Group, but also serving other companies. We respond to a broad range of needs, from building networks that incorporate the strongest security measures and mission-critical systems, to developing and operating various operational application systems including sales support systems, CAD/CAE, and others. The core responsibility lies with Furukawa Information Technology Corporation, which achieved CMM Level-5 in Japan and is highly regarded for the quality of its work.
The environmental and recycling business
The Furukawa Electric Group utilizes its nationwide network to collect out-of-service power lines and cables and recycle them through its dismantling system and at our plastic recycling plant, which are among Japan's largest. As a result, nearly 100% of conductor materials, such as copper and aluminum are recycled, even as we expand our use of insulation materials such as recycled plastic and fuel.
