Company Information


Since Saito Medical Industries started in 1971 by processing hypodermic needles one at a time, we have continued to focus on research and development until today, with our monthly production amounting to 100 million needles. To respond swiftly and appropriately to customers Eneeds, we have developed all our main equipment ourselves, enabling us to provide products with high precision and low cost unmatched by our competitors. Having obtained ISO 9001 and ISO 13485 certification for quality management standards, we have established systems to ensure a stable supply of safe, reliable products to customers. In June 2007, we became part of the Air Water group, and we are further enhancing our technologies to enable us to supply products and services with even greater added value in the field of cannulae for medical use, in order to benefit society at large as a trusted company. We are deeply grateful for the valuable support provided by our customers and partners, and look forward to serving you in the years to come.
