"Contributing to the progress of the world of product manufacture"


Origin of the Corporate Name “FUJIKOSHI”

NACHI-FUJIKOSHI CORP. was founded in the city of Toyama in 1928. Kohki Imura, the founder, named the company FUJIKOSHI in order to give concrete expression to his creed that self sufficiency in machine tool supply is indispensable to Japan’s economic prosperity. The first two characters "不二" which read "Fuji" were picked from the Buddhist scriptures. A passage in the scriptures says "Justice and Injustice appear to be different things. The truth is that they are "Fuji" (not two). They are one and the same”. The Third Chinese character "越" which reads “Koshi” has the same pronunciation as "高志" which means the general area along the Japan Sea since olden days.                              

 

Origin of the Trademark “NACHI”

The NACHI brand name comes from "KUMANO-NACHI-TAISHA", the Grand Shrine, that is one of 3 sacred Kumano Sanzan Shrines. It expresses strong entrepreneurial will. In 1929, the emperor Showa made a tour of the Kansai district to inspect industries as part of the encouragement of domestic production, and personally inspected a FUJIKOSHI hacksaw blade that was on display as an example of an outstanding domestic product at the Osaka Prefectual Office. Overjoyed at the honor of entertaining the Emperor’s special attention, founder Kohki Imura decided to name his product NACHI after the name of the lates navall cruiser to be made in Japan, which was also the very same vessel that the Emperor was sailing on for his tour.
