Starting with the development of automatic marking machines, we have played a central role in developing a system for managing and communicating production and merchandise information in the market; we are now venturing into yet another field.

Toshiyuki Kamanaka

Born April 10, 1937, in Aritagawa, Wakayama Prefecture. Graduated from Wakayama Industrial High School in 1956. Worked for 12 years at Kao Corporation's Wakayama Factory. Was in charge of packaging machinery and equipment. Established KGK (Kishu Giken Kogyo Co., Ltd.) in 1968, a specialized manufacturer of automatic marking machines. Enjoys golf and gardening. Awarded a Medal with Yellow Ribbon (Oju-Hosho) in November 2005.

Our society has been changing at a rapid pace. Consumers in this day and age are price- and safety-conscious, distribution channels and communication means have been increasingly diverse, and the spread of the Internet and globalization of the market economy are all contributing factors to the change.
The world of marking machines we pioneered is not an exception. With the change in the market, higher standards are placed on roller machines and ink jet machines, and more is expected of the making machines.
KGK has been working to establish a system of the production of our line of products that ranges from in-house development of ink, printheads, and character verification system, to actual production of the products.
We became certified for ISO-9001 in 2003 and ISO-14001 in 2004; but we are not stopping there. As a "technology-based company," we are continually endeavoring to refine our technology, including high-precision micro-processing technology and liquid drop formation technology.
We have put a knowledge management system in place, in which the customers' requests become the driving power of our business and the sales department coordinates a network of sales, R & D , and Production departments. This system, we believe, is highly effective in fully understand our customers needs and providing the best marking solutions possible.
We are proudly aware of the fact that our products are highly recognized in the world. Each one of us is aware of the importance of customer satisfaction and environmental conservation and is devoted to improving the quality of our products and services and to preventing environmental pollution.
