Our company history actually dates to 1920 when Kawanishi Kikai created a scale manufacturing section, which became the separate company Yamato in 1945. Since then we have established ourselves as a world leader in the weighing equipment and systems industry. Yamato has also expanded into the consumer market by developing new technologies for convenient homeuse health management devices.
As one means of achieving this goal, we have established a stringent company-wide quality control system centered on “Reliability, Technology, and Creativity.” In 1994 Yamato became the first company in the scale industry recognized as a designated manufacturer under the new Measurement Law and also achieved certification under the international ISO 9002 standard. In 2002, we have been promoted to ISO 9001:2000. This broad recognition of our high standards of quality reinforces our worldwide leadership position in the scale industry and inspires us to continue to set an example for others to follow. Our focus remains on quality, producing products and services that provide total satisfaction, and developing new technologies. In this way we intend to continue our contribution to economic progress and the improvement of people’s lives.
