History of development

In 1915, the founder, S. Saura established Saura Works, as a private company, in Shiogama, Miyagi, one of the famous and good fishery ports in the northern part of main island of Japan.

Patent awarded invention of enameled card and air bubble collection chamber made the design of his compasses so unique and attractive that the head office was moved to Tokyo to better cater for the nationwide sales deployment. Successful business growth necessitated expansion of workshop and on-going renovation of facilities.
By 1933, the company was appointed by Ministry of DOR(presently Dept of Transport) as a recognized factory to provide manufacture and services.
In 1953, incorporated as Saura Keiki Seisakusho Co., Ltd., and succeeded all business of Saura Works.
Exports of magnetic compasses were getting ever thriving, resulted in an official commendation by Ministry of Trade & Industry for outstanding contributions to exports in 1970.

Second half of 1900's was an era of challenges and innovations:
