In the old days, it was said that whenever a baby girl was born, her family would plant the sprout of a Paulownia tree in their garden. When the little girl grew up and got married, they would cut down the tree and make her a chest of drawers with its wood.
In more recent times, some parents use a box made of Paulownia wood to hold the baby teeth of their children. As you can see, the Japanese people have had strong ties to Paulownia wood from times of old. Although the years may pass by and traditions may change, Paulownia wood still holds a special significance in our lives.
Thank you for visiting the website of Takahashi Kogyo Co., LTD. My name is Satoshi Takahashi, the CEO of Takahashi Kogyo. We have worked with Paulownia wood and related products since being established by my grandfather over 80 years ago.
Along with the passage of time and the changes in lifestyle that come with it, the role of Paulownia wood has also developed. It is our greatest endeavor to introduce as many people as possible to the "excellence of Paulownia wood". We greatly appreciate your interest in our business.
For many years, we have visited North America, China, Taiwan, South America and many other places to secure an original supply chain of raw timber (logs).
In recent years, Chinese log imports have been banned, so we import premanufactured Paulownia wood products from China.
In addition to selling whole logs, we also meet the diverse needs of our customers by providing Paulownia wood supplies such as boards and planks that have been manufactured in-house.
