HOKUSHU's founding was in 1958.
"Bringing comfortable, warm living to the north." HOKUSHU began at this point, and to this day we have passionately dedicated ourselves to the research and development of Japan's leading high efficiency residential homes. In the future, we will continue to follow our own trends in providing all-around satisfaction in the lifestyles of our customers.
We hope that as time passes by, our homes continue to brighten the lives that dwell within, creating a more beautiful landscape.
The sales of construction and building materials that are the basis for HOKUSHU's development are ranked number one in Iwate Prefecture, and as building material retailers, we have an impeccable and nationally top-ranked track record. For our current clientele of building contractors and builders we provide total support service, not only for building materials but also for sales support for the manufacturing and construction of structural frameworks. In addition, our company specializes in importing materials specializing in flooring which is sold nation-wide.
Begun in 1979 with the aim of providing snow and cold-resistant housing, the business focuses on custom-made homes built with a wooden frame construction. We currently employ a double insulation system using 2×6 wood walls and Alsecco external insulation system. The Q value (the heat loss coefficient) and the C value (the equivalent area gap) shows that we have a world-ranking high level of air tightness and heat insulation. We provide beautifully ageing zero-energy houses.
We improve the basic performance of the housing stock (existing homes), to facilitate reselling the used home in the market. We also make innovative efforts to enhance the asset value of used houses in Japan.
We will continue to create home values for our lifetime clients and all future customers. In addition, in one show room we can provide one-stop service for any itinerary ranging from new construction to renovation and sale consultation.
Alsecco's External Insulation Composite System boasts the top share in Germany, the most environmentally advanced country in the world. Alsecco has given the sole distributorship to HOKUSHU, and we are developing a nationwide sales network in Japan. In Europe, external insulation systems are widely used to realize a high performing envelope of buildings in order to reduce the environmental impact. From the beginning of the year 2008 year, this system has been sold in Japan for renovation of existing buildings as well as for new buildings, for private homes as well as governmental projects.
Tied up with various industrial, academic, and government fields, we are developing original products and architectural technology to build original high-performance residential homes.
