On October 22‒23, 2016, the City of Kitaakita held its 10th Kitaakita City Industrial Fair at the Takanosu Gym. The event aims to promote local industries. Shintohoku Metal Co., Ltd., which is located in the city, exhibited products at the fair.
This was the fourth time since FY2013 that Shintohoku Metal participated in the industrial fair. Around 70 companies and organizations set up booths, indoors and outdoors, at the fair to sell and showcase local specialty products.
Shintohoku Metal set up a booth indoors. Panels were used to introduce the company as well as the manufacturing process for its construction machinery rollers. In addition, to demonstrate its casting expertise, Shintohoku Metal also displayed the shoe for the EX5600 ultra-large hydraulic excavator, which is one of the parts it manufacturers. The ZW30 and ZW40 wheel loaders were also on display. Through this fair, Shintohoku Metal widely promoted its affiliation as a member of the Hitachi Construction Machinery Group to the local residents of Kitaakita.
Shintohoku Metal aims to continue to carry out initiatives that contribute to the local community.
