Akira Ishikawa
ISHIKAWA JYUSHI started when my father (the late Shigeo Ishikawa) started a business of selling lacquerware wood produced in the Yamanaka Onsen area in Kaga City, Ishikawa Prefecture to the Yamanaka and Wajima areas. At that time, the wood produced in the Yamanaka Onsen area was of unparalleled quality, but no one recognized the value and considered selling it to other areas. Since then, ISHIKAWA JYUSHI Co., Ltd. has pioneered the production of resin lacquerware and has worked on a wide range of products, such as industrial parts for infrastructure, utilizing the molding technology that it has cultivated. The spirit is deeply rooted in me and my employees. ISHIKAWA JYUSHI is committed to constantly challenging material and molding technology change, and to continue to surprise and enrich society. Please look forward to ISHIKAWA JYUSHI in the future.
