COMPANY PROFILE

The Keihin Thermal Technology Czech, s.r.o. Company, the manufacturer of A/C condensers, was founded on 6.8.1997 under the name of Showa Aluminium Czech, s.r.o. as a 100% subsidiary of the Japanese Showa Aluminium Corporation. The decision to establish a subsidiary company in the Czech Republic was the response to the fast growing demand for car air conditioning systems among European producers like Volkswagen, Audi, Saab, Mitsubishi Europe, General Motors and Suzuki, who prefer regional suppliers of their components. In April 1998, the construction of the manufacturing plant in the Kladno – South industrial zone was started. The construction was completed in October 1998, and serial production was launched in February 1999. 

In March 2001, the Showa Aluminium Corporation merged with the Japanese concern Showa Denko K.K. operating in five industrial sectors: petrochemistry, chemistry, electronics, production of inorganic materials and aluminium processing in Japan, Asia, the USA and Europe.

Thanks to its strategic position the Czech Republic has become the European centre of condenser manufacturing of the Showa Denko K.K. Group with the only manufacturing plant of the whole concern specializing in the manufacturing of condensers for car air conditioning systems. 

On 1.1.2012, the Showa Aluminium Czech, s.r.o. Company under its new name, Keihin Thermal Technology Czech, s.r.o., became part of the Keihin Corporation Concern. This Japanese company simultaneously took over other companies from the Showa Denko K.K. Company located in the USA, China and Thailand. 

The Keihin Corporation Company was founded in 1956 and is involved in the development, production and sales of component parts for cars and transportation systems. It currently employs over four thousand workers in Asia, North and South America and Europe. The Keihin Corporation stocks and shares are traded at the Tokyo Stock Exchange.
