About Toho Shouton Co., Ltd.

We started as an annealing manufacturer of general mild steel wire in January 1967. Then, during Japan’s high-growth period, in response to the demand for high-intensity building materials/automotive components, etc., the softening of the strength of steel was required without changing the prescribed steel components in order to manufacture easily. We therefore developed a proprietary method of Atmosphere Control Technology and Heat Pattern for softening by decarburization/carburizing prevention in heat treatment. As an extension of this technology, we also started the heat treatment of special steel and pressed/forging products, and currently handle the heat treatment of non-metal products as well.
