Tanaka’s achievements acknowledged by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry

Nov 19 2020 Read 167 Times

Tanaka Scientific Limited has been awarded the ‘2020 Global Niche Top 100’ by Japan’s Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry. The ministry gave out this award for the first time in 2014, and this is the second time. In this program, the ministry selects 100 Japanese companies who are successfully winning significant market share in global niche markets through appropriate marketing, unique product/service development, and strict quality control.

Tanaka was awarded for the MPC series pour/cloud point testers. The MPC series instruments test cloud point by ‘small test jar method’ (ASTM D7683) and pour point by ‘automatic air pressure method’ (ASTM D6749). These methods, compared to conventional manual methods, significantly reduce sample volume and testing time while achieving greatly improved precision. The ministry also recognized Tanaka’s efforts to have these methods approved by the ASTM which helped spreading this product worldwide and achieving significant market share.

We are proud of this achievement and look forward to launching further new instruments and technologies which we can share with our customers worldwide.
