KOIKE About us


Company Philosophy

Since our establishment in 1918, Koike has played a major role in the development of key industries, as an acknowledged leader in the manufacture of machine tools that use gas as a power source. Over the years, we have pioneered the development of plasma and laser cutting machines and commercialized state of the art automated systems using CNC controls that kept pace with the latest market needs.

At the same time we established a network to supply total systems, from gas, welding, cutting solutions and related equipment, to fill our customers' needs.

As one of the companies with 100 years of experience in continuously changing world, experiencing the social change of company roles and employee lifestyles, we carry a precept of the master Confucius “If a man keeps cherishing his old knowledge, so as continually to be acquiring new, he may be a teacher of others.”.1 By reviewing the old experience and the technology accumulated in the past, we move forward our development with our total approach from the various perspectives such as environment, safety, and application of intelligence technology, etc. in order to endeavor to improve Customer Satisfaction (CS) and Employee Satisfaction (ES).

We will actively promote and engage in our business together with our group companies in today’s relentlessly changing market under Globalization and Industry 4.0, at the cutting edge of the world.

Our corporate philosophy is:

1) Management Philosophy: "To satisfy the needs and establish the trust of our worldwide customers as a total source manufacturer and supplier of gas, welding and cutting solutions."

2) Basic policies:

  1. "To increase customer satisfaction, acquire new customers, and maintain lasting relationships with existing customers"
  2. "To contribute to society as a meaningful and financially sound company."
  3. "To improve our knowledge and skills and focus our efforts toward improving ours and our employees lives."

Looking towards the future, we will continue to commit to our Customer Satisfaction.
