Research and Development

Technologies supporting the KTI Kawada Group

The technologies supporting the KTI Kawada Group are backed by extensive research and development data and its achievements in a wide range of genres ranging from basic technology to applied development.

Starting in fiscal year 2008, we changed the structure to promote development and research for each technical development theme common to the selection of research themes, aiming for the group's overall optimization.

In the KTI Kawada Group, Kawada Technologies' Technology Research Center is focusing on establishing a company-wide technical network and aggregating and sharing data, enabling development speed and creative technology development.
