* ■History of HPC Okinawa*
HPC(R) has features such as ultra-thinness, toughness, no salt damage, and high design quality.
The technology is the world’s first unique patented concrete technology from Okinawa that was born from solving problems in Okinawa’s harsh natural environment, such as salt damage, typhoons, and earthquakes. Furthermore, this technology has expanded the possibility of using seawater in concrete, taking advantage of Japan’s regional nature of being surrounded by the sea, and has led to the use of this technology as an exterior material for the pavilion at the 2025 Osaka/Kansai Expo. HPC(R) with various possibilities of use In addition to adding high value to concrete, which has been used around the world for a long time, technology allows us to create new possibilities, break away from local industries, and develop HPC(R). We established our company in Okinawa in November 2014 with the aim of globalizing our technology licensing business.
Since our company was established, HPC(R) has been adopted in various buildings and structures. Typical examples within Okinawa Prefecture include the Shuri-ori facade of Naha Cultural Arts Theater Nahaart, the roof of Ryukyu Bank Makiminato Branch, and outside the prefecture, NTT West QUINT
It is used in the horizontal louvers of “BRIDGE”.
In January 2023, HPC(R) was awarded the 9th Monodzukuri Japan Award in recognition of its ability to balance high design and durability, expanding the potential for global expansion of concrete products that represent local industries. Received the Minister of Economy, Trade and Industry Award.
Currently, we are not only expanding the use of HPC(R) in buildings and structures, but also actively utilizing IT and building business models that contribute to the realization of a decarbonized society using HPC(R) technology. We are also focusing on developing solutions to solve social issues.

* ■Characteristics and vision of HPC(R)*
HPC(R) is a high-strength fiber-reinforced concrete that includes 1. Mechanical prestress (mechanical compressive stress) of carbon fiber tendons and 2. Chemical prestress of expansive materials. (volume expansion force during hardening)” is a strong PC (prestressed concrete) that has a synergistic effect.
Normal concrete is thicker to prevent the reinforcing steel from exploding due to salt damage, and as a result it becomes overweight. In HPC(R), we solved the effects of salt damage by using carbon wire instead of reinforcing steel (PC steel). As a result, we have created an “ultra-thin prestressed concrete product” that has the following characteristics: 1. Toughness, 2. Thin and lightweight, 3. No salt damage, and 4. High design quality.
HPC(R) has been used in a variety of buildings and structures due to its high design quality. In the future, we will continue to develop the market by leveraging our strengths such as high design quality, and at the same time: 1. Expand the market by expanding the use of fire-resistant HPC(R) for external walls of buildings, etc., and 2. 3. Expanding into a project solution business that solves social issues by leveraging the strength of salt damage, 3. Expanding overseas through business alliances, etc., and 4. Next-generation decarbonized HPC(R) as “four growth engines.” We aim for sustainable growth.

*Comment from Masaki Awane, Representative Director of HPC Okinawa Co., Ltd.* We would like to express our sincere gratitude to okicom and Tech Service for their high expectations for our company’s challenge of developing a solution business in the decarbonized era and its global expansion using our concrete technology as a platform, as well as for accepting our third-party allotment of capital. Recently, we have been hit hard by the cancellation of large-scale construction projects due to the coronavirus pandemic, and as a company we have been
aggressively developing sales, mainly focusing on screening for intellectual property acquisition, research and development, lectures, and media relations. I couldn’t do it and it was very poor.
With this reassuring support, we will be able to strengthen our sales activities, and we will be able to gain the driving force to promote our business, which makes us feel confident. As a representative company in Japan with unique technology and ideas to add high value to concrete, our company has a big mission from here in Okinawa to the world by leveraging HPC(R) technology and using an approach that only we can do. I will accomplish this.

*Tech Service Co., Ltd.*
*Representative Director Motoi Nakasone*

Since our company primarily handles civil engineering work and concrete repair work, we have a strong interest in extending the lifespan of concrete structures.
HPC concrete is resistant to salt damage, and has properties not found in conventional concrete, such as being thin, lightweight, and strong, and has received high praise for its highly designed concrete that has been used in buildings in the prefecture.
In the future, we hope that expanding the use of this material to major building components will lead to lighter weight and longer lifespans, and we will support our efforts to contribute to the realization of a decarbonized society through longer lifespans.
