Japan’s Fair Trade Commission has ordered five leading incinerator companies to stop their practices of bid-rigging on orders from local governments. The JFTC alleges that the five companies, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd, NKK Corp, Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Hitachi Zosen Corp and Takuma Co rigged bids on contracts for stoker incinerators ordered by local governments between 1994 and 1998.
