The Ebara Corporation traces its origins from 1912 and has been taking on social and technological challenges with a spirit of passion and dedication (Netsu to Makoto) ever since. Aligned with the goal of providing its clients, and society as a whole, superior solutions to engineering problems, Ebara has evolved into a world leader of the production of environmental and industrial machinery. Along the way it has come to be recognized for developing an industry standard variety of products ranging from pumps to blowers, chillers and waste water machinery.
Our founder was Issey Hatakeyama that was born in 1881 in Ishikawa Prefecture, he studied under Professor Ariya Inokuty, who in 1905 published the article "The Theory of Volute Pumps", in which he systematically discussed the mechanism of centrifugal pumps and it was applauded around the world as "the standard for theory on this kind of pump".
In 1915, EBARA has received an order for pumps of a large volute type with a diameter of 1,140 mm, a record-high at the time. The pumps, each weighing over 20 tons, were painstakingly completed. The factory lacked crane facilities and was so small that full machining work was not possible there. Therefore, after the pumps were assembled and tested, the crew chiseled, filed, and drilled holes in them, all by hand and on site. Currently, one of these pumps is placed on the premises of EBARA's head office as a monument symbolizing the spirit of "Netsu to Makoto (Passion and Dedication)". All of them manufactured on the basis of the theory and the technology.
After Second World War, during the phase of economic recovery and rapid growth of Japan, EBARA faced an ever- increasing demand for advanced technologies from its customers. To respond to this demand, it strived to develop new products and technologies. It also made efforts to extend its business to segments such as compressors and turbines by actively introducing advanced technologies. In addition, it worked to develop products and technologies necessary for social infrastructure such as water and sewerage systems, stormwater drainage facilities, and waste incinerators, all of which were required to create a better society to live in.
Aiming expansion of its business and spread of EBARA technologies in society, it was developed a new business segment centered on semiconductor production that supports our advanced information society, as well as new products and technologies that meet the needs of society by saving energy and lowering environmental burdens. As developing countries have become the driving force in our global economy, EBARA's business has continued to spread across the globe.
The creation and establishment of EBARA CORPORATION 's Corporate (current) Logo is also necessary to be highlighted as a milestone in the company's history, as it was designed taking the letter "E", the first in our name, as its motif, and based on the following image targets as the backbones of the character of our corporate activities and our corporate stance, opening up the future of water, air, and the environment:
• High quality • Proactive • Internationally-minded • Diversity • Growth potential • A machinery engineering company • Dependability • New technologies.
