Daisey Machinery Co., Ltd. was established by the
company’s founder and president, Tomosaburo Suzuki, with several other technicians
in April of 1975, during a depression after the oil shock crisis. Never relying
on copying conventional technology, Daisey has consistently adhered to originality and has followed
the company policy of a “Technology Oriented Company” ever since it’s establishment.
The founding members of the company were experienced
in the development of innovative packaging machines for the food industry
from their work at their previous company (a group company of a big name electronics
maker), and their various inventions had made numerous achievements in the
food packaging industry. After quitting the previous company and deciding to establish
a new one, Suzuki and the founding members made a decision to step away from
the industry that they had been working in and to start afresh in an
field in order to avoid competition with the colleagues and friends they had been
with. It was thus that Daisey was started up completely
from scratch and with absolutely no products or clients to begin with.
The first challenge undertaken by Daisey was a high-speed
automatic measuring/packaging machine for bean sprouts (photo
above). At the time, most of the bean sprout production process
had not yet been
mechanized, and even the most difficult task of packaging was done by hand.
of bean sprout production was in great need.
In order to answer to such a need, Suzuki and the
founding members worked everyday until late night and even through the holidays,
and succeeded in producing the world’s first fully automatic, innovative, high-speed measuring
and packaging machine in just six months.
Since then, Daisey has designed various devices
for the mechanization of the bean sprout production factory. Today, most steps
of bean sprout production have been automated, much like other major food products,
and bean sprouts are produced day and night in sanitary and modern facilities.
Furthermore, because the globalization of bean sprouts,
as a pioneer of factory grown vegetables, was expected for the future, Daisey
has also been involved in reaching out to the world, ever since it’s
as a result of our endeavors abroad, Daisey now has a wide range of users, not only throughout
Asia, but in the Western countries as well.
Daisey has also been working on an original tape
binding machine as well as a thermal printer (as both were necessary steps in the packaging
process) since the early days of the company. Today, we have a patent for these
devices, not only in Japan, but in a variety of Western countries as
well, and the machines
have received high appraisals on the market.
The friendly relationship between Daisey and the
founders’ previous company continued even after Daisey had been established,
and in 1988, a fully automatic bread slicer was developed upon their
1993, Daisey took after the tofu packaging business from them as well, and,
own ideas and technology into the machines, we have become a leading
in this field domestically, as well as a
supplier for several users abroad.
The motto of a “Technology Oriented Company”developing a variety of new ideas and
technology that answer to the needs of society,
and the goal of sending these ideas out into the world has remained the basic concept behind
Daisey Machinery Co., Ltd. ever since its establishment.
The bean sprouts, tofu, and bread that we owe our
long history to have their roots overseas. However, while these food products
were originally developed in foreign countries, these products currently being
and consumed within Japan may be some of the most advanced in the world. In
a country with such a long history and a rich culture, and with the harsh battle for product
existence in Japan (perhaps one of the fiercest in the world), producers have put in
an enormous amount of work to answer consumer needs. Today, the sprouts,
bread products of Japan have developed the taste, appearance, safety and reliability,
and convenience that puts them as some of the topmost brand-names of the world. And
although sprouts, tofu, and bread are very common items found all over the world,
a distinctly Japanese taste has been incorporated into them in Japan, and we believe
that the products have become a decidedly Japanese food in the same
way that other
products and artworks brought into Japan from overseas has found a way to become “distinctly
We at Daisey wish to support the growth of these
foods in Japan and provide added value to the products by developing and revolutionalizing
the technology necessary in the field of production. In terms of our work
overseas, we wish to be able to send out to the world, the sprouts, tofu and bread that have
become a delightful Japanese cuisine, as well as the machinery necessary to make these
foods. And it is our greatest desire that, through the production of such food products,
the health of people around the globe will improve.
For over thirty years, we have been working on developing,
mechanizing, and streamlining the production line for the above mentioned
daily foods (produced and delivered daily), and have had extensive maintenance
experience, including that of 24 hour/ 365 day operating factories. And we
would like to continue striving to become a meaningful machinery company that can respond
to a variety of production needs.
The “bean sprout” familiar to us in Japan has been a pioneer of the factory-produced
vegetable, and today, we believe it has become
not only a delightful food product but a very safe product that
can be produced in hygienic
environments, without the use of chemicals, and at very stable production rates
365 days a year. The production process, from the seed disinfection before cultivation,
the computer controlled growing system, and the final processes of washing and packaging
has now been almost fully automated, and is able to produce high quality products
at a stable rate.
Bean sprouts are a vegetable that is necessary
for the health of people around the globe. It is a safe food product that can be produced
in factories anywhere in the world, regardless of weather conditions.
an engineering group, we at Daisey believe that, as we near the space age of the
possibilities that this vegetable possesses are infinite. And by spreading the full
system across the globe, we hope to pitch in to the improvement of people’s health
around the world.
Tofu is another product that has recently been attracting attention in the Western world,
and we believe this food, as a healthy soy
bean product, will continue to grow as a global food product. Born in China, tofu has
also evolved into a “distinctly Japanese” tofu in Japan, much like bean sprouts, and has achieved
In 2008, the first large scale factory dedicated
to the production of Japanese-style tofu was created in the mother country of tofu,
China, and our company was blessed with the opportunity to provide the most modern machinery
for this purpose.
In such ways, our goal has been to strive to contribute to the “health of people around
the globe.” And we will continue to
spread the technology we have accumulated across the years, and will continue to actively pursue
the needs of the production factory for a more sustainable, value-adding, new technology.
It is our most sincere wish, at the Daisey
Group, to continue to be a meaningful engineering group that will give their very
best to offer the technology and services that our customers require.
