Before
For society,
and for local communities

We are continuously developing PLEXTALK, a digital talking book player for the purpose of assisting with employment support and providing a pleasant reading environment for the visually impaired. For roughly 25 years, Shinano Kenshi has also put an effort into unique business activities. The DAISY Consortium, which manages and operates the international standard for digital audiobooks, DAISY (Digital Accessible Information System), awarded the title of “DAISY Lifetime Honorary Friend” for the first time in 2005 to the 4th generation president, Hachiro Kaneko. This award was based on the management decision to make Shinano’s basic technology public, allowing all companies to access it.

Future
A Future with comfort
and peace of mind

In order to support the “movement of people and objects,” we are working to create a future with comfort and peace of mind. In the automotive field, brushless motors are becoming more important in the age of automated driving and electric vehicles, as they are used for HVAC, battery cooling, and air conditioning for seats. Meanwhile, we continue to take on a challenge in fields that play an important role in assisting people's lives, such as mobility assistance devices for people with disabilities, work suits with assisted movement, and industrial drones. In the assistive technology field, we are aiming to create “life support” for people with disabilities by expanding the age group of users for the learning support application, Multimedia DAISY.

Automobiles have a lot of potential for concealed mobility
