58 Years of Experience
Artec Co., Ltd. was founded in 1960 as an educational arts and crafts manufacturer and now, a little over 50 years later, stands as a leader in the educational field. Our line of over 9,000 products are sold through 3,000 distributors all over Japan. We make it our mission to provide the tools to draw out a child's creative spirit.
What We Do
Artec provides everything from educational toys like board games, card games and medals to costume bases for assemblies and art fairs to over 40,000 preschools and kindergartens around Japan.
Artec works with 20,000 elementary schools all over Japan, dealing in both standard and our own original educational materials in every subject. We also develop, sell, and rent digital materials for the growing number of ICT programs in schools as well as programming courses for the classrooms of the future.
Secondary and Higher Education
(Art and Technology Sales Department)
Artec delivers products for everything from fine arts and home economics to sports meets to a collection of 19,000 secondary schools, colleges, universities, and trade schools. With the introduction of compulsory programming courses in junior high schools, we also develop, sell, and rent materials for both students and educators. In April of 2016, the ArtecRobo series took a new step forward in a joint enterprise with Gakken Educational to launch robot programming schools all over Japan.
General (Corporate Sales & Marketing)
Artec does business-to-business sales of its own in-house teaching materials, brain training products, novelties, art materials, and sports goods to buyers. Every product is produced through direct contact with our factories and support from in-house planning and design teams, which makes fulfilling requests for all manner of OEM and ODM goods incredibly easy.
And more than that, Artec delivers franchises to educators from every part of Japan. Even infants can start learning using Artec Blocks in our early childhood Logical Kids Program, while older children can learn to build and program their own robots in our Coding Class Program.
