Origin of the Corporate Name "Fujikoshi"
Nachi-Fujikoshi Corp.was founded in the city of Toyama in 1928. Kohki Imura ,the founder ,named the company Fujikoshi in order to give concrete expression to his creed that self sufficiency in machine tool supply is indispensable to Japan's economic prosperity.The first two characters-translated to "Fuji"-were picked from Buddhist scriptures.A passage in the scriptures says "Justice and injustice appear to be different things.The truth is that they are "Fuji" (not two).They are one and the same."
The third Chinese character -translated to "Koshi"-means the general area along the Jaoan Sea since olden days
Origin of the Trademark "Nachi"
The Nachi brand name comes from "Kumano-Nachi-Taisha,"the Grand shrine,that is the origin of Japan.It expresses strong entrepreneurial will.
In 1929,the Emperor Showa made a tour of the Kansai district to inspect industries as part of the encouragement of domestic production,and personally inspected a Fujikoshi hacksaw blade that was on display as an example of an outstanding domestic product at the Osaka Prefectural office.
Overjoyed at the honor of entertaining the Emperor's special attention,Kohki Imura decided to name his product "Nachi" after the name of latest naval cruiser to be made in Jaoan,the very same vessel that the Emperor was sailing on for his tour
