ABOUTABOUT

STORY

Supporting worldwide livelihood.
Dedication in every single needle.

Our company was founded in 1920 as a gramophone needle manufacturer in Tokyo.
Throughout the years we have always endeavored to create high quality products,
although the products themselves have changed to include textile needles,
electronic components,precision parts and more.
Our trademark ORGAN and the “Lady & Organ device”
in our trademark logo came from the gramophone’s association with music,
the sewing machine’s rhythmic movements (as the sewing machine needle was our second product),
and the way the word sounds natural and familiar.
Thanks to our customers and supporters,
ORGAN and the “Lady & Organ device” are recognized as global top brands in the needle industry,
and our products are highly trustedthroughout the world.

ORGAN NEEDLE CO., LTD.

In 2020 we will celebrate our 100th anniversary.
With deepest gratitude to all who use our products and to all who have affected our company,
we aspire to continue creating products that lead to growth and prosperity for our customers.
