Company history

Our company originated about 120 years ago. In the 1880's, Sasuke Murakami I ,the founder, started working as an engineering trainee at Hakari-za, the governmental institution for balance and weights. After the training period, 28th Feb, 1906 he founded a balance company in Osaka.

Sasuke Murakami II started working for the company at 1925, and during the following 30 years he made great efforts to improve not only our products, but also our training and marketing.

To adjust to the situation just after the World War II, he established Murakami Koki Co.,Ltd. on 1st May, 1948, and he became the first president. Because of his great achievements in the field of measuring instruments, he was awarded several times by the Japanese government.

Kazuo Murakami, the present president, succeeded to his position with his father's resolution, and has been making efforts up to the present day.

In Jun. 1996, Murakami Koki Co.,Ltd. was certified as an accredited calibration laboratory for weights ( register number JCSS 0066 ), and in Feb. 2003, certified as an accredited calibration laboratory for balances.
In Dec. 2000, we were also certified by ISO9001 in design, manufacture, repair and calibration of weights and accessories.

Today we have many foreign customers around the world, not only in Southeast Asian countries, such as Taiwan, HongKong, Singapore, Malaysia, but also in European countries, such as the United Kingdom, Germany, Belgium, Spain, and also North America, South America, and Australia. Our products are used for school education and experiment at hospitals and laboratories around the world. The demand is increasing year by year.

Since 1906 we have been helping industry develop with our weights and balances. Today we are pleased to offer you our products for your needs.
