About us

A message from our CEO

Our most important motto is “bring joy to many people”.

Hideaki Tanaka, CEO of Micro MIM Europe GmbH

Our original company, Taisei Kogyo Co., Ltd. has created the μ-MIM® technology specialised in the manufacturing of microcomponents and continues to offer components that meet the increased demands of our time.

As a result, our manufacturing technology has become well-known worldwide and has contributed to society by "bringing joy to many people." Micro MIM Europe GmbH was established with the aim of accelerating this trend and realising this motto.

In recent years, the manufacturing environment has changed a lot, and the speed of change cannot be compared with the past. Therefore, we will not only refine our technology, but also think about the "now" with an eye to the future.

That's why we will actively participate in new initiatives such as metal 3D printing and will address a number of new challenges in the future.

Such as reducing patient exposure to surgery by supporting the development of new surgical instruments with our components, addressing the problem of population growth by manufacturing parts that support space travel development, and protecting our environment by making more efficient use of renewable energy with our products.

We will continue to be "those who take on new challenges" to solve problems and "bring joy to many" in a world full of change.

Our logo

An aggregation of many circles

The circles in our logo stand for all the people we serve: Customers, end users, partner companies, research and development institutions, employees and everyone else.

They also represent the metal powder that is the basis of our production: a round powder made of different materials that we use to create components with our technology that we will take all over the world to surprise everyone.

We respect diversity because we have customers all over the world and our group of companies is present in Japan, Thailand and Germany. We value employees of different nationalities and their different ways of thinking.

Our logo expresses that possibilities are infinitely expanding, just like cell division. The number of green circles is 12, which corresponds to the number of golden stars seen in a ring on the European flag.


We are conscious of the global environment, so green is the basic color. Our goal is to protect the global environment and realize a sustainable society.

The red color comes from the sun on the Japanese flag. We distribute our "Made in Japan" technology and quality all over the world."
