Company Profile

It was just one year after the end of World War II in 1946 when a young, 22-year-old lathe operator began making bicycle parts in a small, rented space in a local town 100 miles south of Tokyo, Japan. He manufactured his products with the only asset he owned: a used 5-horsepower manual lathe.
   The young man's name is Yukio Nagano, the founder of Nagano Products. Yukio has now celebrated his 90th birthday, but still enjoys getting his hands dirty in the tool room and tinkering with machinery. Even after more than six decades since the company's founding, Yukio's son, Yoshitaka Nagano, continues his father's entrepreneurial spirit as the president of the company.
   Today, Nagano Products Co., Ltd. is one of the leading manufacturers of automotive tube fittings in the world. The company seeks consistent high quality exceeding customer expectations, aggressively invests in state-of-the-art equipment and cutting edge production technology, and maintains a financially strong family-owned business.
   We take great pride in the fact that we operate worldwide and provide top quality products to more than twenty countries. We are a growing company, but we remain faithful to our founder's original ideals and commitment to quality.

Nagano Products Co., Ltd. Logotype Concept

Nagano Products Logo

The basic concept behind this mark is a blue ellipse representing the world, inset with two smaller white ellipses representing the natural environment and the living beings (humans) that make it their home. Together it represents our aim to become world-leading in our field, while doing what we can to protect and preserve our environment. These shapes in consonance form the letter "N", for "Nagano".
   The blue and white color scheme is reminiscent of the environment surrounding the Nagano Products head office, with clear blue skies framing the snow-capped Mount Fuji, gazing out over the waters of Suruga Bay. It was chosen as our corporate color scheme in harmony with other local businesses, representing our mutual development and regional cooperation.
   Finally, the blue world shape is tilted slightly upwards to the right, expressing our desire to always look forwards and upwards; our limitless potential for growth and endless pursuit of perfection.
