BIG KAISER Precision Tooling Inc. is excited to share important news concerning the name of its company. BIG KAISER Precision Tooling Inc. will change its name to BIG DAISHOWA Inc., effective January 1, 2022.
In 1948, the 25-year-old Heinz Kaiser gave up his job and started his own business near Zurich, Switzerland. His vision was to advance the development of high-quality tools needed to keep pace with the increasing productivity of machine tool technology at that time.
You’ve heard the saying a million times, “A chain is only as strong as its weakest link.” In metalworking, the chain is a complex one, made up varying components from tiny cutting inserts to the spindle housing.
Last year, the KAISER brand further fortified its relationship with long-time partner, BIG Daishowa Seiki Co. Ltd. The agreement, where BIG Daishowa purchased KAISER Precision Tooling (Rümlang, Switzerland), saw yet another renaming of a KAISER entity to BIG KAISER.
NTMA members visited BIG Daishowa Seiki in Japan during the association’s 2016 Tech Tour last month. The annual Tech Tour is a special opportunity for NTMA members to learn, network and tour manufacturing facilities outside the U.S.
