It takes technology to bend iron. Technology is needed in order to control the stress that occurs in steel materials when they are flexed and bended. There were no factories that concerned themselves with cold bending when we were founded and it was our founder and first Chairman Kazuyoshi Yashiro who thought “If that’s so …” and developed the methods and machinery with a company of his own. It was our current Senior Advisor Koji Yashiro who, together with his elder brother and former Chairman Yasuhiro Yashiro, progressively gave physical shape to that flash of inspiration by Kazuyoshi, who was then in the full flourishing of his challenge accepting spirit as a man of ideas Koji, Kazuyoshi, Yasuhiro and others developed the processing machinery and jigs needed for the bending processes by going through trial-and-error on the shop floor. “There’s no growth without improvements.” The history of manufacturing at Benda Kogyo is a history of challenges and improvements.
