About MARUWA

Introducing the MARUWA digest. Helping private investors to better understand us.

History


MARUWA began with a family of artisans in the Edo period (beginning of the 1800s).In the Taisho Period (in 1910s-20s), the family started manufacturing Japanese-style dishes. As soon as the war ended, they started making dishes for export. During the high economic growth of the '60s, MARUWA expanded its business into electrical components (special porcelain for communication equipment, ceramics for chip resisters) where market needs were growing rapidly.The pioneer spirit has been a very important part of the MARUWA Group's philosophy, in addition to its long-cultivated ceramic technologies.
