Jefferson Industries Begins Construction
It all began with a grassy field in 1988 and the aspirations of President Tsugio Kikuchi. “We have had a dream, for a long time, to conduct business with the world’s largest industrial nation, America.” Within 12 months of inauguration, Jefferson Industries Corporation established itself with a 200,00 sq. ft. manufacturing plant and the original operation put more than 220 local individuals to work. The hard work of these founding employees, along with this great move to the United States, allowed us to establish an amazing foundation for future domestic success.
