Mochida Corporation

Striving to be a “small” Global Enterprise

"Mochida Shoji Co., Ltd.," was established in 1950 as a woolen cloth wholesaler in Iwamoto-cho, Tokyo. Although originating as a trading firm, to keep our customer-centric origins and ensure that we maintain our high-quality standards, we established a research lab and manufacturing department to improve on our original technologies and authentic style. In 1955 we reformed into the current "Mochida Corporation" to reflect our growth. We keep our keeping up to date with the latest technologies to streamline efficiency with no impact to quality.

Keeping with our founders’ vision and guiding principles on making our customers the highest priority, we pursue continuous improvement of our skills and technologies, keeping three principles at the forefront of our goals:

・The voice of the customer, and our community
・The current and upcoming trends of the market with our technology
・Relentless Solutioning- our customer problems are solvable

As markets and industries encounter higher volatility, we will continue to provide quality and value to our customers by providing customer focused solutions. Not every obstacle can be predicted, but our customers can have confidence that every member of our team considers what can be done to continuously improve our product and service to keep them competitive in the market. This focus allows us to have a global presence, but maintain a community culture, which is what it means to be a “small” global enterprise
