Frequently Asked Questions
About I-PEX Inc.
- Q When was the Company established?
July 10, 1963.
- Q Why did you change the company name from Dai-ichi Seiko to I-PEX?
Dai-ichi Seiko was established in 1963 as a manufacturer specializing in high precision molds. We devoted ourselves to improving our skills in mold microfabrication, and later expanded our business to other fields such as connectors, which are very important for mobile information devices, and sensors, which are capable of reading information that was difficult to detect back then. Through these activities, Dai-ichi Seiko has been thriving as a company that can function both as a contract parts manufacturer and as a consulting manufacturer.
Going forward, on the basis of our manufacturing DNA that we have fostered up to today, and with the aim of becoming a global company with a strong presence, we will strive to grow sustainably as an "innovative product development & engineering solutions expert" who creates new value, staying one step ahead of the needs of the times. To that end, we have changed our company name.
