JICAM represents Miyazaki Seiko, the leading cold forming material mill in Japan, for its business overseas.  Starting with cold drawn bars in 1938 Miyazaki advanced into cold heading quality wire, pipe-in-coil and fine slugs (semi-finished precision parts).   Because of this vertical integration know-how gained in one division is transparent to all its divisions and this pool of knowledge in cold forming is reflected in the quality of its product and customer satisfaction.
