About PACIFIC

Business Overview

Since its foundation in 1930 as a venture business aimed at producing valve cores in Japan, Pacific Industrial Co., Ltd. has been growing as a manufacturer specialized in tire valves. Our share of tire valves and valve cores in the Japanese market is 95% and we enjoy more than 20% of world markets. As a manufacturer specialized in utilizing advanced processing technology, we supply stamping and resin products for automobiles to Toyota Motors Co., Ltd. and other major automobile manufacturers.

In response to globalization of the market, we have established our manufacturing operations in the U.S.A., Taiwan, South Korea, Thailand, China and Belgium, becoming a major contributor to the automobile industry around the world by utilizing our proven technologies gained over the 75 years of tradition since our foundation.

We developed the "tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS)" in 2001. Installation of these in vehicles has recently become mandatory under the laws in the United States, and our TPMS has been installed in vehicles since then.

With its new core technology and highly advanced manufacturing capability, Pacific Industrial is aiming at becoming the "only one supplier" of unique products in the automotive industry.

TPMS Business

- Next Generation “TPMS Valve”: Contributing to Automobile Safety, Security, and Global Environmental Conservation -

The TMPS transmitter device was developed as a next generation value-added valve based on technology cultivated from our tire valve, control device, and electronics businesses. TMPS stands for Tire Pressure Monitoring System, and is a system that uses a sensor to alert the driver of irregularities in tire air pressure and temperature. Already mandatory in the United States, laws concerning mandatory use of this device are being considered in many countries due to concerns about automobile safety and global environmental conservation as well as fuel efficiency improvement. As Japan's only TPMS transmitter manufacturer, Pacific Industrial aims to create devices that are smaller, less expensive, and more reliable.
