Incorporation of MIURA SEISAKUSHO CO.,LTD.
As the economy expanded, MIURA foresaw that demand for boilers as a fundamental piece of machinery would grow and took the step of making the company's own model. Boilers with a multiplicity of uses had varied applications, and they became a driving force behind the development of MIURA.
Sales start of small once-through steam boilers
With the easing in boiler safety regulations, MIURA developed a small once-through boiler utilizing it's own pressure vessel construction. Manufacturing began in earnest.
We will make the boiler of the world's best price and quality ever!
Launch of the ZM contract system
(a fee-based maintenance and inspection system)
We changed the name of after-sale service to "maintenance", providing it for a fee.

Launch of the ZMP contract system
MIURA launched the ZMP contract system (three-year fee-based maintenance and management service) that also covers parts and repair costs, starting the unique maintenance and inspection business.
Debut of the ω (Omega) flow
pressure vessel (EH-model).
MIURA developed the landmark ω (Omega) flow pressure vessel that is the basis for the multi-tube once-through steam boiler.
Commercialization of the MI (Multiple Installation) system, revolutionizing the boiler industry
MIURA was able to create the MI (Multiple Installation) system for combining multiple small once-through steam boilers thanks to the use of an automated multiple-unit controller. This made it possible to handle a large steam load.
Setting forth to cultivate foreign markets
MIURA established its International Department, laying the foundations for proactively opening new markets and globalizing operations.
opening the door to the future
Establishment of "Technoservices"
MIURA established it's own services, guided by the twin policies of having "technology useful to our customers" and being "people true to ourselves who our customers love and rely on."
Sales start of AI-model steam boilers,
followed by launch of the ZIS online maintenance system
MIURA began sales of the AI-model steam boilers that can convey information about their current operation status and about whether any malfunctions may be imminent. Furthermore, the following year MIURA established the industry's first maintenance system that connects boilers and MIURA offices by telephone line to operate 24 hours a day 365 days a year.
Debut of the environment-friendly
"non-furnace" pressure vessel boiler
MIURA developed the "non-furnace" pressure vessel with no combustion chamber and launched the low NOx, space-saving, high efficiency steam boiler SQ-model.
Offering new solutions for energy and water
Sales start of residential water softeners
MIURA set to work at expanding its business into even more diverse directions, and started to develop the HO-model residential water softeners. Around this time, MIURA entered the household appliance field in earnest as the soft water life promotion business.
Seeking to be the best partner for energy, water, and environmental needs through the evolution of Technoservices
Technological capacity to conduct dioxins analysis on par with world's best
MIURA received the first ISO/IEC 17025 certification in Japan as the laboratory in the chemical testing field (environmental analysis). MIURA's self-developed dioxins analysis technology was certified with JIS, becoming the industry standard and contributing toward improving analysis precision while reducing workloads.

Industry's first low NOx levels of less than 25 ppm achieved with SQ-model steam boilers
MIURA sought to offer more environmentally aware products and services by introducing the industry's first low NOx steam boilers and the zero-chemical technology for making minimal use of chemicals in treating boiler water.
Launch of Global Online Maintenance (GOM) system in North America and Asia
The ZIS online maintenance system developed in Japan has also been rolled out overseas. The system was introduced at the North American and Asian markets.
The Best Partner of Energy, Water and Environment
Offering total solutions and providing comprehensive one-stop maintenance
MIURA worked to improve energy efficiency in every corner of customers' factories, with every unit of the MIURA Group united to deliver comprehensive one-stop maintenance. MIURA also directed energies toward the new business of recovering and putting to use unused heat such as through its SD-model steam-driven air compressors.
Development of the ballast water management system to protect the ecosystems of the world's oceans
MIURA began sales of the HK-model ballast water management system, which cleanses ship ballast water and protects the ecosystems of the world's oceans.
