It was formed in a merger between each water environment-related business unit of NGK Insulators, Ltd. (hereafter "NGK Insulators") and Fuji Electric Co., Ltd. (hereafter "Fuji Electric").
Since its foundation, the METAWATER group has been developing its business in various domestic and international fields related to water, waste water and the environment based on its corporate philosophy of offering optimum solutions to create water resource recycling. The machine technologies originated from NGK Insulators, and its electric engineering capabilities came from Fuji Electric, and they are synergistically incorporated in our business. To be specific, our core business includes the following: a series of engineering services centered on design and construction of machines and electric equipment for water and waste water facilities as well as repair work, maintenance management (maintenance and inspections) and operation management for these facilities, and provision of an optional combination of the forgoing services as a total solution.
