The Federation of Japan Water Industries, Inc. (SUIDANREN) was established in 1966 as an organization to represent Japan’s water-supply and sewerage industries. We are a private-sector organization established with the intention of helping to build and enhance the social infrastructure that supports people’s everyday lives and urban environments and contributing to the development of the nation’s industry. SUIDANREN member companies are active across the spectrum of the water supply and sewerage industries, from materials and equipment manufacturing, plant construction, design and construction consulting, to facility management, fee collection, and more.
The SUIDANREN works to assist member companies to develop new products and improve their technology, and helps them to address the various problems that can arise in water-related business initiatives. Looking ahead 50,100 years into the future, we strive to act as a bridge between the government and the private sector and to make a meaningful contribution to the development of the water industry in Japan and around the world.
