Sugino Machine was founded in Osaka, but relocated during World War 2 to Toyama Prefecture, where founder Rinpei Sugino was originally from.
Since then, the company expanded its manufacturing base in Toyama Prefecture, where the abundance of water of the Tateyama Mountain Range and popularity of monozukuri has continued to support the company’s activities there.
