Making the most of their own eco products! The Narashino Division is a model for the world as an energy-saving factory.

The Narashino Division is a Eco-Factory for Hitachi Industrial Equipment Systems, a company which follows the basic principle of reconciling productivity with care for the environment. Its greatest characteristic is that it achieves its ecological goals by making full use of the energy-saving products the company develops and manufactures. By installing the company's key products, such as high-efficiency amorphous transformers, inverter-controlled production equipment and electrical power monitoring systems, the factory achieved a reduction of CO2 emissions in FY2014 of approximately 16,000 tonnes(*), compared with FY1990.

This solid technology and its energy-saving effects are highly regarded by the company's customers, and the factory itself doubles as a showroom for energy-saving products. The factory is also attracting attention from around the world as an energy-saving model factory, through initiatives such as taking in trainees from outside Japan.
