The Fog Engineers H.Ikeuchi & Co.,LTD

Company Information

Contributing to society with fog

H. IKEUCHI & CO., LTD. was founded in 1954 as a trading company, and in 1961 we developed the world's first precision-guaranteed ceramic spray nozzles in Kure city, Hiroshima prefecture. This represented our first steps as a manufacturer and seller of spray nozzles.

IKEUCHI was the first company—and the only company in the world at the time—to produce and sell ceramic spray nozzles, and also the only company to offer a guarantee of precision performance for the spray nozzles sold.

Ever since our founding, we have been consistently pursuing new challenges while devising new ways to make various droplet size of fog spray more effective through the classification of spray droplet sizes to utilize them for industrial use, development of Dry Fog nozzles to achieve the world's finest-particle fog, pursuit of development of various businesses with a wide range of different fog applications, and other efforts centered on fog.

Here at IKEUCHI, we consider the provision of new products and services to be a form of social contribution, which is why we have chosen to focus our endeavors on fogs and use what we learn and achieve in this field to contribute to society as a whole. The appreciation of and support provided for this specialized approach by all of our customers has made it possible for us to prosper as a business for the six decades since our founding. Moving forward, we will remember all that our customers and clients have done for us thus far and continue to cherish those relationships as we strive to be The Fog Engineers who lead the world.

Toward this end, we hope for your continued support and encouragement in all of our future efforts.
