History

Super Resin Inc., the root of seven dreamers, was founded in 1957.
At the beginning, Super Resin was involved in the production of composite materials for industrial applications.
In recent years, it is involved in the development of satellites and aerospace components such as Japan’s “Hayabusa” spacecraft, the first and only unmanned spacecraft to land on an asteroid and return to earth with an asteroid sample.

We started development of robotics in 2005 and healthcare in 2007.
In 2011, with the aim of “creating things the world has never seen”, we transferred the underlying technologies developed in healthcare and robotics, to seven dreamers.

In 2014, seven dreamers laboratories, inc. was established in Tokyo and seven dreamers’ “space quality” products soared into the world through the opened door.

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 composite materials. In 2011, we started to take a new step in the USA as seven dreamers laboratories, inc. in order to provide customers worldwide ‘space quality’ products which make full use of the unique technologies inherited by our craftsmen who specialize in a variety of fields including aerospace.
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.
1957

The Beginning and the Challenge

Moto Watanabe

In 1955 at the age of 30, the founder of Super Resin, Inc., Mr. Motoo Watanabe, came across composite materials for the first time and was fascinated by the potential of the material. For two years, he exhaustively studied composites on his own and established composite molding plant in Shibuya, Tokyo in 1957.

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

Ahead of the world, we embarked on the research and development of the molding of carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP) to broaden the possibilities of our dreams.

1980

Activities for the Environment

Wind power emerged

When wind power emerged as an environmentally friendly clean energy alternative source, our company, based on the wealth of experience we have cultivated over the years, went on to contribute to society with a high reliability by producing important 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. Through continued investment in R&D, facility and equipment, we established the first ACM plant in 1986.

1988

The Challenging. Entry Into the Aerospace Field

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

We began R&D in the aerospace field. As a result of our R&D effort, in 1988, we developed a multipurpose remote control aircraft (small unmanned aerial vehicle). Its superior performance and technological innovation made it a popular topic among aerospace experts.

1998

Joining the Hayabusa (Spacecraft) Project

the

Throughout our involvement in many aircraft and satellite productions, we continued to receive reputation for our precision and high quality technologies. As a result, we were invited to take part in the asteroid probe satellite ‘Hayabusa’ project. 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 Aeropace

Starting with the 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, Tokyo on July 18, 2014 with all of the technologies from seven dreamers laboratories inc. Taking advantage of the technical capabilities we cultivated in our work with satellites, we will continue to innovate on people’s lifestyle.
