Before Establishment
MARUWA's origin comes from ceramic artist family which has history since Edo period (beginning of 1800s).
In Taisho Period (in 1910s-20s), the family has started manufacturing dishes for Japanese cuisine. Yoshiro Kanbe has established MARUWA Limited Partnership Company in 1946 in order to sell the ceramic porcelain products (in Seto-city, Aichi). The products were manufactured and exported.
In 1960s, MARUWA has shifted the business to electronic components area (speciality ceramics for communication equipments, ceramics for chip resisters) which market needs were growing rapidly.
Pioneer spirit has been a very important base of MARUWA Group's philosophy, as well as long cultivated ceramic technologies.
