Haimatsu Jpn., also known simply as Haimatsu and called by the trade name Haimatsu Technologies on some products, is a Japanese technology and machinery manufacturing conglomerate who produced much of the equipment used on PATHOS-II, an underwater research facility that maintains and operates alongside Carthage Industries.
The only identifiable item that Haimatsu Technologies manufactured are USB sticks, one of which can be found in Simon's apartment and at PACE Laboratories.
However, since the Haimatsu Technologies logo appears on a bulletin board at PACE Laboratories underneath a section labeled "Hardware", it's possible that along with producing most of the computers and equipment at PACE Laboratories they also produced other technological devices encountered in 2015, such as Simon's smartphone and the touchscreen laptop found in his apartment.
On the back of a newspaper clipping found in Simon's desk, a cut off ad for Haimatsu Technologies advertises something that's 50% off.
At PATHOS-II, the most notable product manufactured by Haimatsu is the Omnitool, an all-in-one computer tool designed for security usage. They're also the producer of the Ductile Suit and Power Suit, along with the Energy Pal S.3, the ZA-X2 Experimental Module, which is used to contain the ARK, the ST-77 Maser tool, and quite possibly their largest selection of technology, the Universal Helpr series of robots, which may include the A95-Worker, a disabled robot unit that Simon only encounters in Omicron, from which he acquires a Cortex Chip.
Along with several posters, schematics and manuals of Haimatsu's products seen all over PATHOS-II, a clipboard found in John Strohmeier's room in Theta listing Abbo Sendeyo from Tau as a project manager for Haimatsu, along with a clipboard found in Mark Sarang's room of Haimatsu board of approval, reveals Haimatsu involvement with Carthage Industries on PATHOS-II.

- The name Haimatsu comes from creeping pine in Japanese (formally Pinus pumila).
- Haimatsu likely established PATHOS-II when it originated as a deep-sea mining facility for metals.
- Haimatsu is based on the multitude of modern day Japanese heavy-industry focused conglomerates.
