Background of our company name

In 1924, our business began in Sunamachi, Tokyo. Corresponding to today’s Kitasuna, Minamisuna, Shinsuna and Higashisuna in Koto-ku, this district lay at the estuary of the Sumida River, which flows into Tokyo Bay. In those days, from Sunamachi seagulls (kamome in Japanese) could be viewed circling over the sea. Seagulls are also a symbol of a good fish catch. We named our product the KAMOME Propeller after the beautiful form of these seabirds. This attractive trademark grew so familiar to our customers that in 1963 our company name was changed to Kamome Propeller Co., Ltd.
When our head office and plant were moved to their current location in the same year, we built a bridge named Kamome-bashi to link the site with a trunk road. This name has now taken root in the community and still identifies the bridge.
