  • Wide range of technological innovations
    1971 Environmental Agency inaugurated. Sanki Engineering develops a track record in municipal solid waste incineration facilities and industrial wastewater treatment facilities, and sets up an Environmental Administration office. Spins off sash business and institutes centralized control on departments. Provides HVAC equipment for satellite communications ground stations in places such as the Middle East, Africa and Venezuela, and builds automotive testing equipment in Russia.
  • Opening the way to a new era: advances in environmental and information technology
    1982 Builds Technical Research Laboratory equipped with basic research facilities and large-scale experimental facilities in Yamato, Kanagawa Prefecture. 1990 Bubble economy collapses.
  • Towards environmentally friendly technology
    2000 Opens Shonan Training Center (Yokosuka-shi, Kanagawa Prefecture) and strengthens human resource development. 2005 Shifts head office to Nihonbashi. 2011 Shifts head office to Tsukiji. 2012 Launches Smart Building Solution Business to provide Smart Buildings with a focus on energy saving business.
