In 1923 two brothers, Zenshichi and Yoshikazu Komori, founded and build their company out of the ruins of Japan's great Kanto earthquake. In a short time they built their first Komori manually fed offset printing press.

From the very beginning Komori established new standards of technological quality and innovation for offset presses. In the 1950s Komori was a full decade ahead of competitors with automated 1, 2 and 4-color presses. Shortly thereafter Komori introduced our first 6-color press.

In 1962, Komori became the first in Japan to manufacture a currency printing press - the product of a joint development with the Printing Bureau at the Ministry of Finance. Since then, Komori has delivered over one hundred currency and securities printing presses to the Bureau. Japanese paper currency, which is among the most graphically sophisticated in the world, is printed on presses made at the Sekiyado plant.

Komori vision led to the development of successful products such as the Lithrone series of sheetfed presses and Komori's pioneering press automation systems.


By 1989 Komori had perfected the completely Automatic Make Ready (AMR) System. Komori followed AMR with the introduction of completely Automatic Plate Changing (APC) as well as Semi-Automatic Plate Changing (S-APC) in 1990. Komori automation heralded a quiet revolution in pressrooms all over the world. As a leading manufacturer of printing systems for sheetfed and web offset production, gravure and flexographic packaging, and securities/currency printing, today Komori serves customers in more than 60 countries.
