Who we are

In Japan, Rheinmetall is present with two entities: Kolbenschmidt K.K. at Hiroshima and Pierburg Mikuni Pump Technology at Odawara.

Piston production in Japan started already in 1972. Kolbenschmidt K.K. was founded in 2000 to strengthen the local presence of Rheinmetall’s piston business. Today, the company has a production facility in Hiroshima and another office in Atsugi. The development, engineering and manufacturing as well as the business development are part of Kolbenschmidt K.K.'s business model. Within this, the most modern processes were implemented together with highly committed employees, which led to the establishment of a very competitive manufacturing center. There, pistons for internal combustion engines in passenger cars as well as for medium and heavy applications are being manufactured.

Pierburg Mikuni Pump Technology, located in Odawara (Japan) and Shanghai (China), is a joint venture company established in 2011 between Pierburg Pump Technology and Mikuni Corporation. We are specialized in the development and manufacturing of pumps for the automotive market, such as variable displacement oil pumps and electric water pumps. With advanced technology products that offer significant energy savings, we support the transition to environmentally friendly mobility.
