Corporate History Cornes Technologies Limited embodies the heritage of two renowned British trading companies, Cornes & Company and Dodwell & Company, both of which have played significant roles in establishing and developing commercial links and trade between Japan and the rest of the world since the 19th century and, in updated guise, continue to do so even today. Joined to this illustrious past is Seki Technotron Corporation, a company long-recognized for its service and dedication to Japan’s high-tech industries and advanced research communities, which was absorbed into Cornes Technologies Limited in 2012. Five years later in October of 2014 Cornes Technologies’ influence within the automotive and wireless markets would accelerate with its acquisition of Microwave Factory Co., Ltd., a leader in microwave and mm-wave measurement services. As of the 1st of April 2017, Cornes Dodwell Coding Limited, an independently managed subsidiary company specializing in the sale and supply of industrial inkjet printers and coding/marking equipment that was spun out from Cornes Dodwell Limited in 2008, was re-merged into Cornes Technologies Limited. It joined together with the existing industrial machinery business to create a new, semi-autonomous Industrial Machinery Company under the Cornes Technologies Limited umbrella. In Feb. 2019, to strengthen the engineering expertise of Microwave Factory Co., Ltd, E&C Engineering K.K., a manufacturer of radio wave absorbers and chamber constructor, was absorbed into Microwave Factory Co., Ltd.. More recently, on the 1st of April 2019, the industrial printer business, a major business unit of the Industrial Machinery Company, transferred to BROTHER INDUSTRIES, LTD. with the goal of raising awareness of the industrial printer Domino brand and expand the business.
