We would like to deeply thank you for your cooperation.
As of November 8th 2018, President & CEO Takuya Yura of Mooncraft Co., Ltd. in Gotemba Shizuoka (hereafter “Mooncraft”), has mutually agreed to transfer all shares to Toray Carbon Magic Co., Ltd., head office in Maibara, Shiga, [hereafter “Toray Carbon Magic”], which has received high evaluations for product development in the field of production with carbon fiber composite material. Both parties agree that between the two companies, Mooncraft should become part of the Toray group in order to move forward.
Since Toray Carbon Magic became a part of Toray Group in 2013 they were to enforce the organization and structure, promote the enhancement of facilities and function, and strengthen a consistent response capability from research and development to production. Additionally, Toray Carbon Magic put “carbon fiber composite material technology” (hereafter “composite”), cultivated through race car development, into practice, and commercialize high-performance/ high functional composite for various fields and purpose. Mooncraft is prepared to meet the needs of light-weight electric operation products for automotive applications in addition to expanded aircraft parts and industrial equipment applications found in expanding markets. Further expanding, developing and enhancing our businesses proposal-making capabilities for creative and revolutionary products.
Mooncraft was established by founder Takuya Yura in 1975 to produce custom designed vehicles such as cars. Since then his reputation is well known as a constructor in Japan motor racing for his development of race cars and street cars. He is really good at being innovative in tasks such as engineering industrial products, prototype development and production.
This opportunity of merge between Mooncraft and Toray Carbon Magic, combines the latest composite resources, and prepares the foundation for race car product development. With this foundation in place we aim to enter the field of race car development to usher in a new era. In the close future as an expert institute in automotive bodywork ‘carrozzerie’ and knowledge for using the latest composite techniques, Mooncraft will be capable of making future cars. All these activities will promote production and expansion sustained through the evolution of composite techniques. We believe that we will lead motor race development in Japan.
Please look forward our future as Mooncraft and Toray Carbon Magic.
