Message from the President

Since 1928, when Mr. Benji Okihara developed Japan’s first low-pressure air jet oil burner and established “Osaka Heavy Oil Furnace Company”, the predecessor of VOLCANO, we have been playing an important role throughout the industry with our combustion technology and related engineering services for more than 85 years.

VOLCANO has focused on the three major tasks: “Burning equipment for heat supply systems”, “Environmental protection equipment and plants utilizing thermal decomposition”, and “TCS (Technical Client Service)”, which provides after-sales technical support, engineering services, and other solutions.
As Japan became the world’s second largest economy after the rise of modern industry in the 1920s, VOLCANO has contributed to development of the Japanese shipping and shipbuilding industries, both essential to logistics, as well as to establishment of a comfortable, efficient recycling society with a low impact on the environment that the land industries have sought.

I would like to take this opportunity to express my sincerest gratitude to our customers and partners for their continued support.

The recent combustion-related fields have required high-quality products and services with well-balanced high efficiency, energy conservation, and low environmental burden. In order to meet the expectations, and celebrate our 90th year and even 100th year anniversary in 2028, Volcano will continue to develop new products, aiming to help create a future society where “heat” is optimized.

We would appreciate your continued support in the years to come.

Masaaki Okihara
President
