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
What is an energy-transmission
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
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.
A stock of three million products for reliable supply
In order to promptly meet our customers' requirements, we maintain a vast inventory
of standardized parts in various sizes. This extensive stock, comprising about three million items and
encompassing more than 30,000 variants, enables us to ensure a stable supply of products.
