A Message from the President


Okamoto Machinery has the equipment to make the gears you need, even when no one else can.


1.Our confidence in our technology enables a bold expansion into the global marketplace.

Our company was spun off in 1975 as a fully independent subsidiary of Okamoto Machine Tool Works. Today, we are still making machine tools as a part of our business, but Okamoto Machinery is really known now as “the gear-making company.”

Our company is a small- and medium-lot producer rather than a high-volume manufacturer, and we can make a large variety of products in lots ranging from a single item to tens of thousands. It was our overseas strategy to differentiate our products in a globalized market that led us to form Okamoto’s first subsidiary in China.

It was thus five years ago that we established the idea that we would "target the world, go where our users are!" for our gear-producing business. Our Chinese factory, just like our home factory, can make products one-by-one from raw materials and is not just an assembly plant.
The factory has developed in a satisfactory manner, recouping its costs after three-and-a-half years. We were correct in our judgment to build the Chinese factory five years ago. I think that to do so today would be difficult. We’ve been able, now and then, to see how the times were changing and make adjustments accordingly. We’ve enjoyed a long history based on that premise, during which we’ve improved our technology and put our international strategy into action. Now that we’ve expanded, we plan to do our best to make our presence permanent.

2. All our employees have their roots in “craftsmanship.”

At our company, we possess technology and expertise that we’ve used to make machine tools. When it comes to gears, anything another company can make, we can make too. We will not accept there being any gear we cannot make. At our company, we even make our own gear-making machine tools. Our motto is “Technology Done Right,” and that means we strive for diligent craftsmanship without cutting corners. Our company is ultimately a manufacturer and not a distributor. As long as there is craftsmanship, we will be in the business.

Put another way, you could say, “those who don’t enjoy craftsmanship are not welcome.” Even our sales staff must first acquire several years of experience on the production line before beginning sales work. We must not be merely a maker and supplier of gears, but rather an essential partner our customers can count on and trust.
