History

Overflowing with firsts in Japan’s modern industry Overflowing with firsts in Japan’s modern industry

Our origin was in 1853 with Ishikawajima Shipyard, the same year that Captain Matthew Perry arrived. We developed technologies through shipbuilding, going on to create numerous products and technologies that would contribute to the modernization of Japan, including the country’s first jet engine, LNG tank, and others. What will be our next first? We want to remain a company that continues exciting both our employees and the world. Going forward, we will continue just as we have in the past.
