A Long Term View from Our Founder

Every individual who has owned and enjoyed using Shimano fishing tackle or bicycle components has a reason to thank a Japanese visionary names Shozaburo Shimano, who in 1921, declared "I aim to make Shimano's products the best in Kansai, then the best in Japan, and finally the best in the world."

For over 80 years, Shimano has concentrated on precision engineering, one step at a time. We continue to strive to create the most innovative products you can enjoy in the outdoors and we are dedicated to maintaining your access to places where you can ride a bike and fish.
