Dear Friends, Customers, Suppliers and more friends :Shiro International Corporation was founded in 1973. Wow. 40 years ago. It's only a short history comparing to 100years' old companies but is longer than 5 years'. The founder Paul Hayakawa, noted as a trustable person, started business as an exporter for industrial sewing machine parts. At that time, Japan's industrial sewing machine/parts industry was rapidly growing. Sewing machine brands such as JUKI, brother, Pegasus and Yamato just started to be known in world's stitching industy. Shiro did sell tons of spare parts too. Japan's products were (pretty)good and quite cheap. That's how it was. During the decade of 1983 to 1993, the growth of Japan's industrial sewing machine/parts topped the world, and no decent garment factories could do without. Shiro continued supplying (very)good and reasonably priced products. It was in 1993 when Abe Hayakawa succeeded his father's business. Wow. 20 years ago. Only to face strong competitions from other Asian countries and to struggle from sharp decline of garment industries in areas like North America, Europe and Japan. How unfortunate. But his friends, customers and suppliers, as well as his staff supported him. After all, how fortunate. Now in, Shiro continues supplying parts, equipments, supplies and ideas still mainly to the stitching industries all over the world. The time has changed, so have the products and the markets. But the efforts to maintain trustable company have never been changed. We are neither MacDonald's nor Three Star Restaurant. We want to be your favorite Trattoria where people come back often. For something good.
