Since incorporating in 1946, Sakurai Graphic Systems Corporation has manufactured printing equipment and provided services to customers in the printing industry.
Our manufacturing is carried out at a state of the art facility in Mino City, Gifu, Japan, which has attracted worldwide attention for its advanced 'mechatronics' production methods and its solar-powered generating system.
Sakurai, which was launched in 1946 by Ryuzo Sakurai, is still a family owned and run business, with Ryuta Sakurai the current President.
In 2000 Sakurai established its UK branch in Hounslow, Middlesex, selling directly to the printing industry both in the UK and also Europe. Here in London we enjoy very close relations with the Sakurai family and Sakurai Corp in Japan, and often have members of the Japanese
team working with us in our Tamian Way offices.
We achieved a turnover of more than £5m in the UK over the past 12 months, with much of our business generated by existing, loyal and highly-satisfied customers.
The support we are able to offer our customers, through extensive in-house technical experience and expertise, and through a well-stocked parts department, is another key reason for our success since 2000 in the UK.
Our Hounslow base is also home to a unique showroom and testing centre where prospective customers can see both offset and screen presses in action and even bring their own test jobs to print.
You are always welcome to visit us here at Sakurai in the UK - just give us a call.
