Shinano Kenshi (parent company in Japan)

The story of Shinano Kenshi began in 1918, when Yukinori Kaneko established Shinano Spun Silk Spinning Co., Ltd. in Nagano prefecture of Japan. At the time, industrialized spun silk production was considered as a high-tech industry. Over the years, the company added additional products and services and explored other industrial markets to keep pace with a changing world.

In 1962, the company established an Electrical Department primarily for the manufacturing of small precision motors. In the early 1970's, they introduced fan motors for air conditioning machines, geared motors for copiers, and produced electronic equipment. In 1973, the company changed its name to Shinano Kenshi Co., Ltd. To reflect a more diverse product offering and marked the ongoing evolution of the company's expansion and globalization.

Today Shinano Kenshi products include precision electric motors, industrial system equipment, and life assistive technologies. Offices and manufacturing centers are located in Japan, China, Hong Kong, USA, Belgium, Thailand and India.
