Welcome to Tokyo R&D

Message from the president

Ryota Okamura
Representative Director and President Tokyo R&D Co., Ltd.

To hone the passion for making cars conceived at the time of foundation into a sound business.

We will continue to refine ourselves as a business while retaining our passion from our founding for car production.

Tokyo R & D was established in 1981 and its 36th anniversary ceremony was held in 2017 last year. I joined the company in 1988. I was interested in cars since early childhood, decided to be an automobile development engineer in my high school days, and entered the gates of Tokyo R & D after graduating from college.

In an open atmosphere that can even be called chaotic, I gradually became interested in the work of making cars itself. While competing with colleagues from various backgrounds who also loved cars, I continued working diligently that I almost had no time for sleep and I think my foundation as a development engineer was created in that environment.

After that, I experienced working in R & D in various fields and learned in the process that working to develop my favorite cars was meaningless unless I am also able to "contribute to society" and "conduct business profitably" at the same time as it will also halve the fun. In 2017, I became President and Representative Director and plan to further strengthen the business towards these two directions.

While deepening our expertise, we will also continue to expand our area.

The vital parts that make up cars and the numerous functions required from it continue to increase. Particularly safety and environmental compatibility will continue to become more sophisticated. We cannot compete with large car manufacturers and parts manufacturers in the refinement of such technology. However, actually applying such new technologies in a car require broad knowledge and experience such as an understanding of all the other parts of a car and their compatibilities with each other. The scope of business of the current Tokyo R & D group spans the whole automobile development process which ranges from planning and design, modeling, chassis and body design, prototyping, to evaluation and improvement.

In addition, as a group of companies we have "PUES Co., Ltd." which specializes in the development of "components for electric vehicles" and "control systems" as well as. "Tokyo R & D Composite Co., Ltd. " which leverages our more than 30 years of extensive research in the molding technology of CFRP which despite its history of use for airplanes has recently been drawing attention for use in automobile exterior and structural parts.

With each companies’ expanding its own customer base and cooperation when necessary, we are able to find new customers from new fields and are beginning to play an active part in completely different fields. In this way, assuming that each company is one line, we will continue to make efforts to make the line as thick and long as possible but with the cooperation of each company's know-how and technology, we will be able to not only increase but multiply our capacity so that the line will not remain as just a line and becomes a surface or an object.

Disseminating new value to the world

Regarding Tokyo R & D’s future, we have started the business of producing our own products and importing and selling overseas products that make us think "this is good". In the future, we will proceed in the direction of expanding our manufacturing and selling of our own developed products. Beyond that, there is also the "manufacturing and sales of original cars" as Tokyo R & D. In order to meet the conditions to reach there, we will still need to overcome many challenges. However, should all our employees work towards that common goal, we must be able to grow through our involvement in various new matters. If we continue to work hard towards this goal and should Tokyo R&D have luck on its side, then should be able to realize this goal much earlier than we expect.
