Sumitomo Heavy Industries, Ltd. (SHI) has a tradition of excellence and innovation that spans over 400 years.  From its very beginning as a small shop selling medicines and books in Kyoto, Japan in the early 17th century, to its current status as a diverse, $8 billion corporation, SHI has continued to grow and flourish in an ever-changing international market.

SHI’s acquisition of IGC-APD Cryogenics, Inc. in 2002 brought together two of the world’s leading cryogenic companies to form the SHI Cryogenics Group, with an unsurpassed tradition of design, development and success in the manufacture of cryogenic equipment.

SHI CryocoolersCryopumps and Compressors continue this tradition by supporting global research & development as well as state-of-the art technologies. Today, applications of cryogenic technologies can be found in our daily lives. SHI products are used directly in or in the manufacturing of many of the world’s medical, semiconductor, telecommunications, electronics, biochemical, vacuum-coated, custom laboratory equipment and other industrial products.

SHI products are built in world-class manufacturing facilities using the latest Six Sigma manufacturing and process capabilities. The result is a product portfolio that offers flexibility, high reliability and is supported by a global sales, service and support network.
