KORITSU INDUSTRIES CO., LTD., turned 64 on January 1, 2020.
We believe that we have been able to survive for such a long time because we are a company needed by the society.

At the age of 14, my grandfather Yasunobu Fukuhiro, the founder of KORITSU, joined the Naval Aviation as a pilot in training. As a survivor, he devoted his life to restore Japan after it was devastated by the war. First, he used education to inspire the people and dedicated his life teaching in a technical high school. He was committed to teaching the students the importance of virtue and nurture them to help build a new Japan.

Then, in order to pursue the restoration of Japanese technology, he decided to venture out of the education field and start his own business. That was the story behind the foundation of KORITSU INDUSTRIES CO., LTD.

“We aim to become a company that is loved by the people while pursuing the Japanese traditional technology with the mindset of contributing to society.”

Even amid the drastically changing era, we will continue to strive to provide valuable products that are indispensible to the society. We have cultivated sand-making technology over the years while keeping our traditional mindset “RITA SOKU JIRI” since the foundation.
