Nitta's 'Air Spring' has been in use on the Japanese Shinkansen trains since it was first developed.
Although it has Swedish roots, the Gadelius Group is also very much a Japanese company, specialising in railway suspension and anti-vibration products, industrial machinery and supplies, and medical devices.
With vast experience, enthusiasm and skill Gadelius brings unique, high-quality, high-technology products in these sectors to and from Japan.
We create a transparent and dynamic partnership, both with our suppliers and our customers.
