Becoming one with our associates
to find a new tomorrow.
Ochiai—Strength from sincerity.
Ochiai was established in Iriya, Taito Ward, downtown Tokyo, just after World War II in October 1947. From times that were changing at a breathtaking pace, we have continued to do our share, placing emphasis on Japan’s manufacturing prowess up until the present.
As a general trading company, we handle approximately 250,000 kinds of products with our three transmission gear, bearing, and tool departments as our cornerstone. And it was through the warm support of everyone that we were able to see our 75th year of business in 2022.
Staying in line with the times, we started up service with our online ordering system known as Kura in 2009, so that our customers could place orders at any time—24 hours a day, 365 days a year—while at the same time treasuring everything we have built through our long history. Through services like this, we have continued forward in a composed, absolute, and steady manner. We will go on challenging ourselves to flexibly take on anything and everything to come.
Our unwavering stance from the moment of our establishment through to the present day is based on our corporate creed of “Commitment to Expertise”, upon which we place much importance. We have obtained the trust of a large number of customers and achieved all of our accomplishments thus far by concentrating our entire focus on providing support to Japanese manufacturing and having a command on stable business management.
There is no doubt that the spirit incorporated into our corporate creed from the time of the company’s establishment, “Commitment to Expertise”, is an extremely important policy that must be passed onto future generations.
Iriya, in Taito Ward, is a downtown area that still exudes the warmth of residents from yesteryear, and is most familiar to people in the summer because of its Morning Glory Market. The atmosphere of this downtown area in which people take care of each other and work hard to involve themselves in each other’s lives is in perfect alignment with our own corporate culture.
We believe that the turbulent times of this remarkably changing world is when we need to go back to square one and reconsider everything with a sincere heart. We feel that business is done through a connection by mutual feelings, and that should be the posture which a vendor adopts. We also believe good old passion, which we feel is so important, provides us with our strength of incredible individuality in modern times.
While staying true to our traditions over the past 75 years, I have always imagined a bright future. That bright future is comprised of our customers, suppliers, employees, their families, and everyone else around us. I believe that in order to live up to the trust in us held by all and to bring about a bright and glittering future capable of filling people with joy, it is important for us to do all we can now and continue on with our assiduous work in promoting Japan’s manufacturing prowess.
As I express my gratitude to everyone who has supported us through these 75 years and eagerly look forward to your continued support, please also let me also offer my sincere regards to you and your future.
President and Director
