IHI Corporation (IHI) was established as Ishikawajima Shipyard in 1853. Since then, IHI have evolved into a comprehensive heavy-industry manufacturer, with the aim to contribute to social progress by relentlessly pursuing technological excellence and cultivating advanced engineering capabilities. We specialize in four main areas: Resource, Energy & Environment; Social Infrastructure & Offshore Facilities; Industrial Systems & General-purpose Machinery; and Aero Engine, Space & Defense.
IHI acquired Ionbond in 2012, as part of the next step in building IHI’s worldwide framework of machinery and job-coating products and services for their global customer base.
Today, IHI has been working together with Ionbond and IHI’s subsidiary IHI Hauzer Techno Coating B.V. (Hauzer) to provide a comprehensive portfolio of services in both metal and non-metal applications. This furthers IHI’s ambition to become a global leader in the growing markets of heat treatment and thin-film technology. In fact, the combination of Ionbond’s process engineering and extensive coating service network, coupled with Hauzer’s design engineering excellence for coating machinery, has led to many innovations and advantages for customers of both companies as well as IHI more generally.
Together with Ionbond, IHI aims to contribute to social sustainability and produce new value from long-term perspectives by tackling social and customer issues. This is entirely in line with IHI Group management principles: we value contributing to the development of society through technology and believe that human resources are our single most valuable asset.
