Our Mission: Provide customers 

with new value that keeps them a step ahead of the times

Itoki was founded in 1890 as Osaka-based Itoki
Shoten, aiming to popularize the inventions and
patented products of the day. Ever since, we
have remained successful by delivering value
ahead of the changing times. Last year, Itoki
celebrated the 125th anniversary of its founding.
We owe this long history to the unwavering
support of a host of stakeholders, including our
shareholders, investors, local communities and

Itoki provides numerous products and services
centered on the places and spaces where people
gather and work. In this sense, we have a heritage
of helping our customers grow and develop—
this is how we assist them and contribute to
society. This spirit is imbued in the DNA that has
sustained Itoki over the past 125 years.
The rapid changes taking place in today’s business
environment highlight the importance of our
mission: we see it as our social responsibility to
proactively provide our customers with new value
that keeps them a step ahead of the times.
