Message from the President
Aiming for further growth with a "progressive" spirit
ESPEC first started business in 1947 to manufacture laboratory instruments. Ten years later, the company boldly changed its course to the field of environmental testing, which is our present core business. Back then, no one in Japan had ever heard the term "environmental test chamber." Under the motto "Do things a bit differently, before anyone else," we succeeded in developing the first-ever environmental test chamber in Japan.
An environmental test chamber is a device that artificially replicates various environmental factors such as temperature, humidity, and pressure. Today, environmental testing is conducted in every process of developing automobiles, mobile phones, and many other industrial products. This field is crucial to the advancement of state-of-the-art technologies, and ESPEC has led the industry in Japan as a pioneer and developed markets overseas from an early stage. The Group is currently comprised of 18 domestic and overseas companies and we are recognized by customers throughout the world as the global leader in environmental test chambers.
The spirit of "Do things a bit differently, before anyone else," long-cherished since our founding, has become the identity of our progressive and enterprising spirit, and serves as the driving force behind the many challenges ESPEC faces. From our founding, we have maintained a strong hope of being a player that contributes to scientific and technological progress in society. These values together form our corporate philosophy of "THE ESPEC MIND," and are shared by each and every employee.
With a progressive spirit, ESPEC aims to continue contributing to the advancement of state-of-the-art technologies, and to pursue further growth as a global company.
