Leading with a top-class sprocket share

KANA takes pride in providing high-quality energy transmission products to the world. Our sprockets, essential components for chain rotation, have earned a dominant market share. Serving as a foundation for various machinery, KANA products contribute to the process of manufacturing worldwide.

What is an energy-transmission product?

These components facilitate the transfer of power to industrial machinery by converting the energy provided by motors, engines, or other prime movers. They encompass roller chains, gears, and sprockets (gears designed to turn chains). They find extensive applications in automobile production lines, multilevel parking garages, escalators, and more, as well as various types of machine tools.

Efficient stock control with our original system

Through the consolidation of warehouses from various locations to Iga, Mie—a substantial logistics hub—we now maintain a vast inventory comprising over 30,000 product variants. Additionally, a large warehouse in China serves as our Asia logistics base, ensuring price stability. Stock management is facilitated by our original system which accurately forecasts demand. Our approach minimizes shortages and excess to keep production rolling.

An advanced logistics system for swift delivery

KANA developed the DOLS logistics system to deliver products quickly and reliably to customers, incorporating unmanned and automated warehouses well ahead of industry trends. Since its launch in 1992, we have consistently met stringent delivery timelines. With orders placed within Japan by 5 p.m., products available in our inventory are shipped on the same day. This streamlined system ensures that you receive what you need right when you need it.

Aiming for zero defects
with thorough quality control

To inspire customer satisfaction and trust, maintaining consistent product quality is paramount. We implement rigorous inspections within the factory and perform a final check for all completed products at our logistics base. Our goal is to make the expectation of flawless product quality something that goes without saying.
