Mitsubishi Materials Corp admitted that its two subsidiaries falsified data about products,

Mitsubishi Materials Corp said its subsidiaries falsified data about products, including rubber sealing products used in aircraft and automobiles, in a statement on Thursday (23, Nov).

The company said an investigation in the wake of a data-falsification scandal involving joint venture partner Kobe Steel found that Mitsubishi Cable Industries had inappropriately distorted data for the aforementioned products.

The data was manipulated for around 270 million units to match specifications set by the company or its clients and took place between April 2015 and September 2017.

Meanwhile, another subsidiary, Mitsubishi Shindoh, had manipulated data for metal products, including brass and copper parts used in the automotive and electronics industries. Mitsubishi Materials said it found problems at Mitsubishi Shindoh going back to October 2016. At least 29 companies are believed to have bought the parts in question.

Mitsubishi Materials emphasized that in both cases, it has not found any safety or legal problems. However, it has set up a task force to look into the problems and to devise countermeasures to improve quality control.

The news comes after Kobe Steel, Japan’s No.3 steelmaker, admitted in October that workers tampered with product specifications, making many automakers and aircraft manufacturers to check the safety of their products.
