.....DAITO ELECTRIC MACHINE is recognized both at home and overseas as a special manufacturer of electric hair clippers and massage equipment, and is the No.1 manufacturer of electric hair clippers in the world, with a market share of more than 50%. The company manufactures 150 product types, including electric haircutting tools, medical equipment, and massage equipment, and supplies these products on an OEM basis to major electric apparatus manufacturers in the U.S., Europe and Japan. In addition, the company's brand "THRIVE" has a global market and has been steadily growing.
..... In 1933, the current president who is a tinkerer, heard one of his friends say that one day, manual hair clippers will be replaced with electric ones. He immediately made a prototype, and after two years, he established a company with his brother. The company started on the back of a truck, and then he brought hair clipper manufacturing equipment at a site where a wire drawing company was located in former Hirakata city. Later, he expanded the business, changed the organization and named it DAITO ELECTRIC MACHINE in 1950. The company began manufacture of massage equipment in 1957, and now has a number of patents. In order to expand the into the world market, the company built factories in Okayama (7,500g), and in Beijing and Suzhou, China.
