February 2020, ShinMaywa Industries (ShinMaywa Group) celebrates the 100th anniversary of the founding of the business.

ShinMaywa dates back 100 years to February 1920, starting with the design and manufacturing of aircraft in a warehouse on the premises of Kawanishi Machinery Company established in Kobe City.
The enthusiasm of engineers who hoped to build aircraft themselves came together to produce numerous renowned models, in an age when aircraft were uncommon.
We have inherited the spirit of challenge of those engineers down through the years, and continue to place importance upon carefully listening to the needs of society and our customers to develop products and services that are indispensable to social infrastructure.
In order to support a secure society and comfortable living in the future, we will change our gratitude towards all of those who have supported us into power, to continue challenging the next 100 years with the courage to "transform."
