Background of relocation/reopening

As the founding president was considering going out of business due to his aging, the business was taken over through personal M&A in April 2021.

Since most of our business partners are in Tokyo, we found a used property on the ``Unoccupied House Bank'' while searching for a new location that would allow us to visit the city by train.

We decided to move and fully renovate the property because of the stylish exterior with exposed concrete, near the station (about 7 minutes walk), about 80 minutes by train to Tokyo, and parking space available.

[About Ioku Co., Ltd.]

We took over the business through private M&A in April 2021, and currently provide one-stop services for apparel product planning, design, pattern making, sample production, and mass production. We will also implement initiatives to improve the working environment for our sewing staff, reduce waste such as leftover fabric, and reduce CO2 emissions at our factories. We will strive to connect the apparel industry, which continues to shrink, to the next generation.
