about us

  • Company Background…50 Years with School Materials

    Artec products are used in kindergartens, elementary schools,
    middle schools, and high schools all across Japan!

    Since its foundation in 1960 as a specialized manufacturer of teaching materials for drawing and other fine arts, Artec Company Ltd. has been a constant force in education. Now, with a nationwide network comprising roughly 2,000 agencies, the company delivers products to elementary, middle, and high schools from Hokkaido in the north to Okinawa in the south.

    The Artec focus is originality ? “From Knowledge to Experience”

    Recent large-scale educational reforms call for new values in the field of education. Artec takes pride in constantly providing high-value materials to the classroom setting as it shifts “from knowledge to experience.”

    Features: Development, Production, and Stocking Systems

    Childhood products, the development of sales promotion tools and
    original materials, and proposals for idea products

    The know-how we have gathered in the development of education materials has grown into corporate sales promotion tools, childhood products, and store fixtures. Artec has an integrated system that covers planning, consulting, and POP planning for promotional products and event novelties to store displays and POPs.

    “Made-to-order design” and “direct trade” ? the foundations of new value

    The designers in our design office can custom-make products that fit your needs.

    Direct Trade
    Our trade staff deals directly with approximately 300 on-site representatives, including joint ventures in China, which allows us to provide estimates without middleman costs.

    We also conduct daily shipping with dedicated containers. That is why we can offer comfortable prices for small lots as well.
