The Railway Track Maintenance Division forms one of the main pillars of Totetsu Kogyo's business. Railway track maintenance is essential for a safe and comfortable railway transportation network. While coordinating closely with JR East (East Japan Railway Company), our largest customer and shareholder, we make every effort, both night and day, to provide railway tracks that ensure safer and more comfortable train operations by making the best use of our highly sophisticated technical expertise, which we have cultivated over many years.
In order to perform our work more safely and efficiently, we are making full use of our "Big Fleet", which include the most technologically advanced railway track maintenance machines. This "Big Fleet" is the largest such fleet in the country, and we are proud of being No. 1 in Japan in market share of railway track maintenance.
Immediately after the Great East Japan Earthquake shook our country in March 2011, we have fully engaged in the repair and reconstruction of railway tracks, including the Tohoku Shinkansen, and contributed to the railway system’s quick recovery.
We are also engaged in a number of large projects of building new railway tracks for the Shinkansen and for many other public and private sectors.
In this business field, we make full use of our special expertise obtained through railway construction for various projects, such as construction, renovation, and reinforcement of elevated bridges, standard bridges, tunnels, motorways, and multilevel crossings, as well as setting up railway platform edge doors for passenger protection.
We proactively promote the development of new methods for natural disaster prevention and anti-earthquake reinforcement construction projects.
In addition, we contribute to create a safe and comfortable railway transportation network through many different types of railway related maintenance work.
The technology developed by our Architectural Business expands into a variety of different areas that provide people with safe, comfortable, and beautiful places where they live and work. We make the best use of our railway related technical expertise for the construction and maintenance of station buildings for railway lines, as well as apartment houses, office buildings, hotels, shops, schools, etc.
We proactively promote the development of technology that meets the contemporary need for greater safety and convenience, including construction methods that reduce shaking in strong winds and earthquakes as well as superior economic efficiency.
In addition, we are promoting our "One Stop Shopping Strategy" which provides our customers with one-stop services to fulfill different types of needs for construction, maintenance, and environmental requirements at a much lower cost. Our "Streamlined Process Strategy" also delivers services for the life of a building including design, construction, inspection, utilization, and maintenance, all of which are available through our Totetsu Kogyo Group.
Protecting the global environment is one of the major issues for humankind in the 21st century. We are trying to address this difficult issue not only by reducing the environmental impact of our activities, but also by providing technology and services to our customers which enable them to resolve some of their environmental issues at a lower cost.
Currently we are providing environmental technology and services, such as constructing solar power generation systems, greening of buildings (including the moss greening method), draining disposal systems, removing asbestos, implementing energy conservation systems for air conditioning, etc.
