GMK in 1939
Around 1933, founder Akiharu Sugiura began manufacturing products like bittern, used for temperature adjustments during heat processing, and kamasu, a straw bag essential for delivering products, for what is known as Toyota Industries Corporation. The Automobile Department of Toyota Industries Corporation, established the same year, would become independent in 1937, eventually becoming what is now the Toyota Motor Corporation. This event led Akiharu Sugiura to begin manufacturing components for Toyota Motor Corporation, and in 1939, he established Sugiura Seisakusho GMK.
a growth trajectory,
10 years after
the end of the war
Starting around 1955, automobile production volume grew rapidly alongside the growth of the Japanese economy. The company received many orders for components, and experienced remarkable growth. In the 1960s-70s, Sugiura Seisakusho implemented cutting-edge machinery ahead of its competitors. The company took on the challenge despite various risks, including concerns about whether workers would be able to use the advanced foreign-made forging machines, as well as concerns about transport and procuring foreign currency, and in doing so managed to develop the business even further.

in the 1980s-90s
In the 1980s, Sugiura Seisakusho solidified its original quality control methods and began winning quality control awards, including awards from Toyota Motor Corporation. In 1985, the company began in our company manufacture of metal molds, undergoing trial and error to bring all steps of the process in our company, all while ensuring a high level of quality. In 1996, Sugiura Seisakusho solidified the three main pillars of its business (cold forging, warm forging, and heat forging), and became able to propose optimal solutions to a wide variety of clients.
80th anniversary -
adapting to globalization
The Plaza Accord in 1985 made the yen stronger and the dollar weaker, driving Japanese companies to move production out of the country. Sugiura Seisakusho established SUNRIGHT AMERICA, INC. (Columbus, U.S.), its first overseas site. The company continued to establish overseas sites in Germany, China, and Indonesia, with the goal of having its products be utilized throughout the world.
As a result, Sugiura Seisakusho was able to celebrate its 80th anniversary in 2019. The company will continue to take on challenges in new areas, with the goal of having Sugiura Seisakusho screws be utilized not only in the automobile industry but in industries like medicine and construction, thus helping support the activities of companies all across the world.
