WHO ARE WE?
Tsubaki was established over 100 years ago, in 1917, as a bicycle chain manufacturing company. However, Tsubaki shifted its business completely in less than 10 years, and wanted to accomplish more challenging work by producing more sophisticated chains for machinery. Tsubaki brushed up its technology and ideas and developed new chains one after another. Currently, Tsubaki manufactures more than 20,000 types of chain.
