Thanks ＆ To the Future with You
We, YAMAWA MFG. Co., Ltd., will celebrate our 100th anniversary in 2023.
It began in the early 20th century…
Threads are indispensable for many products.
During that time all "taps", a tool used for creating internal screw threads, were imported. Our founder, Jokichi Watanabe believed that the domestic production of taps would prove crucial for the development of the Japanese manufacturing industry.
In 1923, Jokichi Watanabe founded YAMAWA MFG. Co., Ltd. as a private company and began research into the standardization of taps and manufacturing methods for the mass production of high quality taps.
The company later became incorporated, and the factory was evacuated to Yonezawa due to World WarⅡ. After the war, YAMAWA was involved in the establishment of JIS standards for taps, etc.. As a specialized manufacturer of threading tools, YAMAWA has developed alongside the Japanese manufacturing industry.
Today, YAMAWA contributes to manufacturing in Japan, Asia, Europe, the U.S., and other countries around the world through the following three companies:YAMAWA MFG. Co., Ltd., which manufactures taps and other products; Yamawa Engineering Service Co., Ltd., which provides domestic sales and technical support for Yamawa products; and Yamawa International Co., Ltd., which provides overseas sales and technical support.
Looking towards the next 100 years.
As a group, YAMAWA will continue striving to provide "Reliable Screw Threads".
YAMAWA Promotional Movie
For those who are not familiar with YAMAWA
For those who know about or have used the tools but are not familiar with the manufacturer.
We want those people to know more about YAMAWA! We produced three promotional videos with this in mind.
These three short promotional videos highlight what is most important to YAMAWA, "People", "Craftsmanship", and 100 years of "History".
Please take a look at YAMAWA's commitment to providing "Reliable Screw Threads".
YAMAWA Motion Logo
As part of YAMAWA's branding project 2019, we participated in SOUNDS GOOD and created ASMR sound files.
