Founded in 1896, The Hakodate Dock Co., Ltd has a long history in Japan’s shipbuilding industry, having
developed into the only shipyard and manufacturer of heavy industrial machinery in northern Japan. Its
shipbuilding division developed a 34K DWT Double Side Skin-type bulk carrier in collaboration with parent
company Namura Shipbuilding Co., Ltd based on its Superhandy 32 which features box-shaped cargo holds,
a wide breadth and shallow draft.
The company’s ship repair division, located near major sea routes in the North Pacific, is in full operation,
repairing or converting various types of domestic and international merchant ships, as well as JMSDF destroyers
and Japan Coast Guard ships. In response to customer demands, it has constructed a 230K DWT dry dock
measuring 308.0m x 54.0m x 8.50m to accommodate large-sized ships.more
The Yokosuka Shipyard has one of the largest dock in Tokyo Bay. It is easily accessible by public transportation.
The majority of employees work in the shipyard and value chain of shipbuilding is concentrated in the yards.
Taking advantage of this feature, we are trying to increase the added value of our products by gathering material and moral support from Japan and overseas.more
