Parent Company

Sango Co. Ltd

Since its founding in 1928, Sango Co. has dedicated itself to the art of manufacturing.  In particular, Sango’s specialized technology for automotive exhaust

system products has led domestic and overseas vehicle manufacturers to recognize Sango as an “approved drawings” manufacturer. Combined with an unstinting pursuit of excellence in stamping and forging technology that began with its founding, and its unique position as Japan’s only automotive parts manufacturer with an integrated secondary steel product division, Sango has established a strong and robust position within the industry.  While addressing the globalization and environmental issues of today, Sango has also executed a supple transformation.  As a company “inheriting proud traditions, while boldly embracing revolutionary change”, Sango is dedicated to excellence.
