    Headspring Inc.

    Electronic Components / Semiconductors

    Company Overview / Who We Are

    Headspring has been devoted to the development of cutting-edge technology in the field of power electronics by utilizing next-generation power semiconductors (SiC, GaN). By leveraging these innovative technologies, it becomes possible to downsize and enhance the performance (efficiency and bidirectionality) of products. Having undertaken over 300 commissioned developments so far, in 2019, we introduced the noteworthy bidirectional DC power supply "biATLAS" to the market. This product has been widely utilized for the development and production facilities of batteries and automotive components, achieving industry-leading miniaturization and weight reduction through proprietary design. Recently, we have commercialized battery charge-discharge systems, which are being used in various battery-related applications. We have also been focusing on the overseas expansion of automotive components, and in July 2023, we established a joint venture company "ANEVOLVE HEADSPRING Pvt LTD" with India's Anand Group. Through this joint venture, we plan to combine Japan's design technology with India's production capacity to maximize synergy between the two countries. Furthermore, to address modern challenges such as zero-energy buildings and the rapid increase in power consumption due to EV chargers, we have developed solutions to control the power of storage batteries rapidly. Based on these technologies, we are working on building next-generation power-sharing systems domestically and internationally, contributing to the efficient utilization of renewable energy and the stabilization of power demand in regional communities. At Headspring, we continue to pursue new challenges as a solution provider aiming to contribute to carbon neutrality and sustainable development goals (SDGs) through the provision of next-generation infrastructure while pursuing cutting-edge technology. As pioneers in next-generation energy technology, we are developing power electronics technology for electric vehicles (EVs) and energy storage systems. We are committed to building a sustainable energy future through the deployment of essential power converter systems and DC regenerative power supplies for EVs and renewable energy products. In these ways and more, we are a venture company constantly pursuing new challenges. Would you like to join us in this innovative and vital work? - February 2020: Signed a capital and business alliance agreement with Kawamura Electric Inc. - June 2021: Signed a capital and business alliance agreement with Shobunsha Holdings, Inc. - July 2023: Established the JV "ANEVOLVE HEADSPRING Private Limited" with India's Anand Group - Objective: To lead the EV market in India by merging Headspring's design expertise in power electronics applied equipment with ANAND Group's ability to produce high-quality and cost-effective automotive components in large quantities for global supply.

    Our Vision / Mission

    Management Philosophy: We attach the utmost importance to the inherent capabilities of individuals to benefit the society of the future with ideas to overcome social inequalities and technologies that will enhance human happiness. Mission: Realization of a society in which all people on earth can benefit from electric power If the headspring is clear, so is the stream. Like the headspring, which is the source of water from which a stream begins, we aim to be a team that is constantly creating new things. Like the other meaning of the word "headspring" - a spring-loaded head - we are both shock absorbers and energy accumulators, steadily accumulating energy through repeated trial and error to give our ideas great spontaneity.
