Mr Akihiko Nakamura General Manager, R&D Strategy Dept. OPTEX Co., Ltd.
OPTEX Co., Ltd. (OPTEX) sensing technology is world-class, and its business has grown around sensing equipment in the fields of automatic doors, security and measurement, among others. It boasts around 60 percent of the automatic door sensor market in Japan. It was the first, in 1980, to develop a far-infrared sensor for automatic doors, and its business has evolved against a background of creative technological capability. Unusually, OPTEX actively pursued overseas expansion right from the start. Currently about 66 percent (fiscal 2014 results) of total sales come from its overseas business.
OPTEX is building on the Internet of Sensing Solution (IoS) concept to develop its business utilizing sensor data via the internet. The aim is to establish a highly sustainable business model from which to expand its business.
