Thank you for your patronage of 120 years

I would like to express my sincere appreciation for your continuous patronage.

Ikegai Corp was establishmed in 1889. In the year of its foundation there was no established machinery industry in Japan. Shotaro Ikegai founded Ikegai to start Japan’s first production of lathes in Shiba, Tokyo. During it’s 125 years, society has changed dramatically along with the progress of manufacturing technology, MONOZUKURI. Ikegai has experiencing many adversaries including two world wars and the formation of the Cold War structure and also its collapse. These combined with the drastic ups and downs of the economy Ikegai has only been on the verge of dissolution once, this was over the period of Meiji Taisho, Showa and Heisei era. Ikegai has managed to achieve stable growth through all the turmoil maintaining a strong, financially sound position and is now currently leaping into a renewed stage of development. They have achieved this by focusing on industrial machinery, the “Mother of all machinery”. Ikegai has developed diesel engines, printing machines, and plastic machinery. In the past 120 years Ikegai with its entrepreneurial skills and foresight has passed on through the generations a huge contribution to the society, thus helping maintain strong progression.

At this moment, the world is significantly changing, new technologies based on a global point of view are required.

Ikegai will continuously develop and manufacture products that meet the needs of time by utilizing our core business structure in large-scale machine tools, industrial machinery extruders and marine diesel engines.

As the world demand for more environmental friendly clean energy sources grows, the use of nuclear power, wind power and solar power is progressively increasing. The need for CO2 reduction technology and high-efficiency of energy is rising dominantly in Asia and continues to grow. Ikegai’s specialist technology for machine tools is needed for the promotion of such energy usage. Ikegai will keep contributing towards the progress of society by forging ahead with technical developments in each of its divisions including machine tools and creating new value and growth throughout our company. I appreciate your kind support to Ikegai and looks forward to achieving sustained further growth into the future.
