History

Super Resin Inc., of the company that gave birth to seven dreamers, was founded in 1957. 
At the beginning, Super Resin was involved in the production of composite materials for industrial applications. 
In more recent years, it has been involved in the development of satellites and aerospace components, including Japan’s Hayabusa, the first and only unmanned spacecraft to land on an asteroid and return to earth with an asteroid sample. 

We launched R&D in robotics in 2005 and in health care in 2007.
In 2011, with the aim of creating totally novel, world-first products, we transferred the technologies that we had developed in health care and robotics to Seven Dreamers Laboratories, Inc., a company that we established in Silicon Valley, USA. Then, in 2014, we established seven dreamers laboratories, inc. in Tokyo to deliver “space quality” products to the world.

history

 

The Beginning of a New Journey to Aerospace

The origin of seven dreamers dates back to Super Resin Inc., which was established in 1957. Since our establishment, we have been working in the development and manufacturing of composite materials and contributing to society as a pioneer and important player in the history of composite materials. In 2011, we took a new step in the USA as Seven Dreamers Laboratories, Inc. to provide customers worldwide with ‘space quality’ products which make full use of the unique technologies inherited by our craftsmen specializing in various fields including aerospace.
We began in aerospace, but devoted ourselves to mastering other fields as well, making full use of the technology we inherited.

1957

The Beginning and the Challenge

Moto Watanabe

Since our establishment, we continued to earn a reputation for producing quality composite material products made with glass fiber (GFRP). At the request of Taro Okamoto, the famous Japanese artist known for his avant-garde paintings and sculpture, we produced the face of his ‘Tower of Sun’, a sculpture he created as the symbolic centerpiece of the 1970 Osaka World Expo that is still seen as an emblem of Japan’s rapid economic growth.

1970

The Growth and the Blooming

太陽の塔

Since our establishment, we continued to earn reputation for producing quality composite material products made with glass fiber (GFRP). At the request of Taro Okamoto, the famous Japanese artist known for his avant-garde paintings and sculpture, we produced the face part of the ‘Tower of Sun’ sculpture. The ‘Tower of Sun’, which is a symbol of the 1970 Osaka World Expo, is still considered as a symbol of rapid economic growth of Japan.

1971

Moving Towards the World of Carbon Fiber

CFRP

We expanded our possibilities and dreams when we became one of the first companies to undertake R&D on the molding of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP).

1980

Activities for the Environment

Wind power emerged

When wind power emerged as an environmentally friendly clean energy source, we contributed to society by applying our wealth of experience to the production of important and highly reliable components for wind power generation.

1982

Dawn of the ACM Era

the ACM factory

In 1982, we established an R&D laboratory for advanced composite materials (ACM) and started research and evaluation of composite technologies and markets in the US and worldwide. After continued investment in R&D, facility and equipment, we established our first ACM plant in 1986.

1988

Taking on the Challenge of Aerospace

a multi-purpose remote control aircraft (small unmanned aircraft)

We launched R&D in the aerospace field, and in 1988, developed a multipurpose remote control aircraft (small unmanned aerial vehicle). Its superior performance and technological innovation drew that attention of many aerospace experts.

1998

Joining the Hayabusa Project

the

Our involvement in a wide range of aircraft and satellite projects earned us a reputation for precision, high-quality technologies. As a result, we were invited to take part in the project to build the Hayabusa asteroid probe satellite. In 2010, Hayabusa, which included several of our technologies, successfully returned to earth, and we received letters of appreciation from the Minister of Space Development and Minister of Education, Culture, Sports, Science and Technology of Japan

1998
 -2010

Significant Advances in Aerospace

Starting with our participation in the Hayabusa project, we have been involved in numerous communications, observation, and other satellite projects. Currently, our products are used in almost all of the satellites launched in Japan.

2011

From Space to Earth

In order to deliver “space quality” technology and products to people all over the world, we established Seven Dreamers Laboratories, Inc. in Silicon Valley on February 10, 2011.

2014

Establishment of seven dreamers laboratories, inc.

We established seven dreamers laboratories, inc. in Minato-ku, Tokyo on July 18, 2014, inheriting all of the technologies belonging to Seven Dreamers Laboratories, Inc. We will continue to leverage the technical capabilities cultivated through our work with satellites to develop innovative lifestyle-related products and services.
