Janome – 100th anniversary

Janome will celebrate its 100th anniversary on 16 October 2021.

To mark this occasion, we have decided to change our company name from “Janome Sewing Machine Co., Ltd.” to “Janome Corporation”.
We would like to express our sincere gratitude to our customers and many other stakeholders who have supported our company and products for the past 100 years. We look forward to earning your support for the new Janome.

Since our establishment in 1921 in Takinogawa, Tokyo, as Japan’s first domestic sewing machine manufacturer, we have been committed to the development and improvement of creative culture through the manufacture and popularization of our household sewing machines.
The uninterrupted support and trust that we have built with our customers over 100 years has made our company what it is today. At the same time, this means that the “Janome” name and brand which you have nurtured, carries a heavy responsibility and mission to society. With this in mind, we are committed to providing products and services that are more creative, convenient, and environmentally friendly, and that are in tune with our customers’ lifestyles and social activities.

On the occasion of our 100th anniversary, we created this commemorative site to look back on the history of our first 100 years. Please enjoy revisiting this with us.
While recognizing our 100th anniversary is a major milestone, we will continue to put value in your trust and take on the challenge of our next 100 years.

President & CEO
Makoto Saito
