Super Resin Inc., the root of seven dreamers, was founded in 1957. In 2008, it became a subsidiary of the I.S.T Group, founded in 1983,
which began the rebirth of Super Resin.
We started developments for health care in 2001 and robotics in 2005. With those technologies, we aimed for “changing the lives of people with impressive technological capabilities” and that’s when they were transferred to and taken over by seven dreamer’s laboratories, inc. in 2011.
In 2014, seven dreamers laboratories, inc. was founded in Tokyo. seven dreamers’ “space quality” products soared into the world through the opened door.

The Beginning Towards Space
The origin of seven dreamers dates back to Super Resin Inc., which was established in 1957. Since our inception, we have worked on the research and development of composite materials and worked with molding processing, contributing to society as pioneers sustaining the history of composites.
We began in the aerospace field, then engaged in the mastery of various others, but we continued to make full use of the technology we inherited and took a new step in 2011, starting seven dreamers, inc. in the United States in order to deliver “space quality” products to the world.
The Beginning, then Challenging
Moto Watanabe (then 30 years old), the founder of Super Resin Inc., first encountered composite materials in 1955.
Growth and Blooming
We created the face portion of the “Tower of the Sun”, which was at the Osaka Expo, held in 1970, involving glass fiber reinforced plastic (GFRP) in a manufacturing process that was the result of our past manufacturing achievements. The Tower of the Sun is still considered to be a symbol of the spectacular economic growth of Japan.
Moving Towards the World of Carbon
Ahead of the world, we embarked on the research and development of the molding of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) to expand upon the possibility of even more dreams.
Encounter with the Environment
Wind power emerged as an environmentally friendly, clean energy. Our company, having the strength required, used our cultivated wealth of experience to go on to play a highly reliable role in contributions to society.
Dawn of the ACM Era
In addition to establishing “ACM Laboratory” in 1982, we collected new materials in a survey of American composites. We continued advancing the development of equipment and facilities for the introduction of ACM and the ACM factory was completed in 1986.
Challenging. Moving Towards the Aerospace Field
We began research and development in the aerospace field. As fruit of these technologies, we announced a multi-purpose remote control aircraft (small unmanned aircraft). Its superior performance and developmental strength made it a popular topic among aerospace experts.
Participation in the Hayabusa Project
Our many achievements with aircrafts and satellites caused our products to be evaluated as highly precise and as high quality technology, leading to us being involved in the production of the “Hayabusa” asteroid spacecraft. In 2010, Hayabusa, brought together by our technology, succeeded on its return to Earth and we received letters of appreciation from the Minister of Space Development and the Minister of Education.
Significant Advances in Space
Starting with our participation the Hayabusa project and observation satellites, we went on to participate in many satellite projects. Our products are used in most satellites that have currently been launched in Japan.
From space to Earth
In order to deliver “space quality” technology and products to the people all over the world, we established seven dreamers laboratories, inc. in Silicon Valley on February 10, 2011.
Establishment of seven dreamers laboratories, inc.
We established seven dreamers laboratories co. in Minato-ku, Tokyo on July 18, 2014 with all of the technologies from seven dreamers laboratories inc. We will continue to innovate the lifestyles of people, taking advantage of the technical capabilities we cultivated in our work with satellites.
