Message from the CEO

Electronic products have been progressing at a speed that has far exceeded our imagination. At Hightec Systems, our main pillar of business lies in the buying and selling of used manufacturing equipment for semiconductors and FPD devices, which are critical for electronic products. 

Ever since the establishment of our company, we have made it our mission to provide service that supports the manufacturing process and developed our business. At present, in addition to buying and selling used manufacturing equipment for semiconductors and FPD devices, we are able to offer engineering services such as repairs, modification, maintenance of most of used manufacturing equipment. 

We also offer appurtenant work, such as export and import trade control, heavy weight logistics construction and construction for utility systems - which are essential for domestic and foreign facility investment.

Moreover, the creation of Fuji Technical Center (in Shizuoka) with a cleanroom designed for equipment storage and maintenance as well as Kyushu Parts Center (in Kagoshima) largely intended to store equipment parts, has enabled us to offer greater assistance to our customers.

In moving forward, we plan to incorporate and develop a third pillar in addition to our two existing business divisions of semiconductors and FPDs and encourage a balanced growth of the company. The third business division will consist of the import and sales business of advanced thin film-related equipment such as ALD (Atomic Layer Deposition).

In this regard, we endeavor to continue evolving into a company that is indispensable to our customers by dedicating ourselves to these three business divisions and fully commit to its development with focus and passion.
