SATO was founded in 1940 to develop, manufacture, and sell machinery for processing bamboo, rattan and palm. Throughout its history, the company has been obsessed with meeting demands for labor efficiency. In 1962, our founder Yo Sato invented a hand labeler. The company subsequently became a pioneer in price marking, and was able to open up new markets when the hand labeler became a smash hit around the world. In 1964, we began independently manufacturing hand labelers, moving beyond the machine manufacturer paradigm to build the foundations of our supply business.
