Okamoto Industries, Inc.
Okamoto Industries, Inc., located at Tokyo, Japan, is an international manufacturer. Since 1934, spanning multiple generations, name changes and the influences of ever-evolving consumer trends, Okamoto has continued to grow and thrive by offering rubber and plastic products of the highest quality to enhance the lives of our customers.
The Japan Rubber Industry was founded in January 1934 with a corporate mission to manufacture a line of rubberized clothing and raincoats. Just one month later, latex condoms were added to the product mix under the name Okamoto Rubber Co., Ltd., an addition which has fueled our steady growth ever since. 1949 was a milestone year, the year we were listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange. Nine years later, a major merger began another period of rapid growth and expansion. By joining forces with Nippon Gum Industries, Ltd. and Riken Rubber Co., Ltd., we became an even more cohesive and dynamic enterprise, strengthened by the ideas and technologies that our new associates brought to the table. In 1985, we changed our trade name to Okamoto Industries, Inc. Over the years, our successful joint ventures with Reebok Japan, Inc., Michelin Japan and other strategic partners have helped put us on the fast track in lucrative markets, as we continue to build a reputation for the highest quality, most innovative products and processes available today.
Known as a company always looking to push the boundaries of science and technology, Okamoto is driven by the desire to achieve higher levels of customer comfort and satisfaction. We’ve focused our energies to develop innovative processes that allow us to manufacture reliability into every product that bears our name. And we will continue to use our resources to enrich the experiences of our customers and the fortunes of our employees, shareholders, vendors and the community in which we live and operate. Okamoto Japan has a vast network of facilities throughout the country that research, develop and produce the products that fuel our international growth and continued success.
We have facilities inside and outside Japan & loyal customers all over the world!
