Since 1972, we had established the joint investment, VULKAN Kupplungs- und Getriebebau, Bernhard Hackforth Gmbh & Co., KG. & Matsuzaka Trading Co., LTD. Since then Nippon VULKAN is a part of the VULKAN Group, which consists of three divisions that all have their own product ranges such as elastic couplings for ships, generators, compressors and other industrial applications as well as solder-free (or braze-free) tube connections used in refrigeration and air-conditioning technology.

Currently the Japanese shareholder is Hitachi NICO transmission Co., LTD and supplies couplings and technical support for VULKAN products in JAPAN. Expertise and customer orientation made VULKAN Japan a reliable partner for its clients.
