CEO Message

Homura Heavy Industries Corporation (HMRC) focuses its business operations on electronic systems specialized for outdoor environments which includes farmlands, rivers, coastal areas and marine environment at large.

According to the United Nations, the Earth's population is forecast to increase rapidly from 7.6 billion people in 2019 to 9.7 billion people by 2050. As the population grows, expanding food production to feed that population may become increasingly difficult, leading to shortages of foods we take for granted such as meat, fish and cereal. Many of today's primary industries are labour-intensive, so they will need to be streamlined using leading edge technologies like Internet of things robots, artificial intelligence and machine learning.

Leveraging its experience in waterborne environments, HMRC develops technologies in two key areas: Biogroup control; to control the behaviour of organisms; and robotics, to control the movement of machinery. By combining these technologies, we are driving the industrialization of food production in primary industries, with a keen focus on practical application on the front lines of industry.

On behalf of everyone at HMRC, I thank you sincerely for your continuing support and encouragement.

Our Mission

To solve world hunger
by automating food production

According to United Nations forecasts,
the Earth's population will grow from 7.6 billion in 2019 to 9.7 billion in
an increase of 2.1 billion people over 30 years.
Expanding food production at the same rate
as population growth will be a challenge.
Foodstuffs we take for granted today,
such as fish, meat and cereal, may become scarce in the future.
Our aim is to automate primary industries,
using new technologies with control technologies at their core.

What Kind of Company is HMRC?

The Challenge to Automate Food Production

Raising the productivity of food production in Japan will be no easy task. Japan's working population in agriculture,
forestry and fisheries is aging, with some 70% of workers aged 65 or over*, confronting the country with a labor shortage.
Our promotes computerization and remote work, distinguishing between two types of work: underwater work and waterborne (surface) work.
We propose automation solutions.

Research and Development

With control engineering as its core suite of technologies,
HMRC conducts constant technological development in two key fields: Biogroup control,
which controls the movements of organisms, and robotics, which controls physical objects.
We publish the results of our development work regularly on HMRC Technical Review.
