Providing absolute solution for gas operation since 1958

Since its foundation in 1958, KAGLA VAPORTECH has been performing as a specialized manufacturer in the field of LPG, Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG), and Ammonia Gas (NH3). Within the course of business, we have received patronage of many customers as a top manufacturer in the field of vaporizers. In business, we were among the first to expand overseas from Japan. Now we also have a manufacturing base in Shanghai, China.
We have been catering for the demands of small and niche field that are hard for the big enterprises to deal with. As a result, our sales network extends to more than 20 countries today.
Conservation of the global environment has become an urgent issue today. And the world is entering into a new era to seek for fundamental change of energy source.
In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic that covered the world in 2020 has significantly changed the lifestyles and work styles of the people all around the world.
In order to respond to this era of great change, we consider KAGLA must further transform into a company that can meet even more worldwide diverse demands.
We will continue to explore what mission and duty KAGLA should fulfill in the society, and will continue to serve as a “company with One and Only Uniqueness ” even in the new era of global energy.

WHO WE ARE – Kagla Vaportech Corporation

KAGLA VAPORTECH CORPORATION was established in 1958 as a small manufacturer of LPG manual pumps. Since then, our unremitting efforts have made us widely recognized as a leading manufacturer of LPG / Ammonia vaporizers and other related LPG devices. History of more than 60 years has earned us a reputation of being one of the most experienced LPG vaporizer manufacturer in the world. Through continuous research and development over the years, “KAGLA” brand has grown to be a symbol of durability, reliability and safety.
While environment issues have become a common global concern, rapid increase of energy demand among developing countries and sense of distrust to nuclear power plants have made the situation further complicated. In this energy diversified era, we foresee the role of LPG as a major source of clean energy. And therefore, we wish to contribute to its further growth.
