3.Corporate History

The company began in 1918 in Nakano, Tokyo, as Sakurayama Kogyojo, a manufacturer of alundum, but in January, 1921, it became the Nihon Grinding Wheel Co.Ltd. In 1935, the company became a partnership firm, but all of the factory buildings were lost in an air raid in May, 1945. After the war, the Tokyo factory was rebuilt and production was partially re-started. In April, 1949, the company was incorporated, and in 1955, it was designated as a JIS factory. In February, 1971, in an effort to achieve further equipment rationalization, the factory was moved to Mitsukaido City (now Joso City) in Ibaraki Prefecture.
We have been manufacturing a variety of grinding stones for more than 90 years. We are proud of our products made using our unique technology and we have garnered positive reviews from our customers to date.
