The Company

Mitsuboshi Belting Ltd. was founded in Kobe (Japan) in October 1919 as a producer of industrial drive belts. It all started with the production of cotton belts. Through continuous advancement and further developments, Mitsuboshi has evolved over the years into a Global Player not only in the drive technology sector, but today, the company also offers solutions in the sectors of architecture, landscape construction and electronic components.

This success is based on the consistent implementation of the corporate philosophy “High Performance,” “High Precision,” and “High Quality.” The three stars in our company logo stand for this philosophy which is also represented by our name Mitsuboshi (Japanese for “three stars“).
