The history of Nakashimada has told the story of tradition, technological innovation and the harmony of using the right people.
In 1911, Nakashimda began its business in Kurume City, Fukuoka Prefecture.  From 1935, we started the production of machines.
In 1960, we began to make high speed headers.  Over the past 40 years, Nakashimada has become a professional forging machine maker with sales and service network covering Tokyo, Nagoya, Osaka, Los Angeles, Nuremberg, Shenzhen.  All these years, we have been looking ahead to the future while taking a prudent step at a time.
