TOYO started as a rayon machinery manufacturer in 1925, and after surviving the harsh post-war years it resumed the production of textile machinery.Subsequently, it entered the field of injection molding machines and die-casting machines. At present, we are aiming to realize “CS ICHIBAN,” based on the spirit of “customer satisfaction first and foremost” which has been residing in the heart of each and every employee since its inauguration.
