Our Business Origin Via Mechanics was established in 1968 as an independent company, while its business started from 1910 as a section of “Tokyo Gas Kogyo”, one of the pioneer company in modern Japan. It reorganized as “Tokyo Gas Denki Kogyo” in 1913, and reached to the top 5 machine tool manufacturer in early Japan.
The machine tool section reinforced to Hitachi group in 1939, and next year in 1940 our ex-head quarter Kawasaki Factory was built, which is the birth of our architype. Our spirit of manufacturer or “Mono-zukuri”, has grown and cultivated from the begining of modern Japan, for over 100 years.
