Excellent makes, supplies, and assembles components for a major rolling stock manufacturer, including iron, stainless steel, and aluminum parts for chasses, structures, internal and external fittings used in rolling stock on JR and other railways. Major projects include manufacturing components for the Dubai Metro (first urban train network in the Arabian Peninsula), as well as the Hokuriku Shinkansen, the Rail Star, and Kintetsu Railway express trains.
Visitors to Excellent are struck by the relative youth of the president and employees, which underlines the company’s position as a vital player in Japan’s manufacturing future. Another highlight is the intricate diorama of the local town, including buildings, railways, and other infrastructure.
