Yamawa, the Japanese leading manufacturer of threading solutions announces the foundation of Yamawa Europe: a new company that will officially start operations on January 1st, 2016. The establishment of Yamawa Europe represents the natural evolution of the long cooperation between Yamawa and Sorma, the Italian partner that distributed Yamawa over the last thirty years.
In the European market, strongly affected by a deep economic crisis in recent years, a new company birth is a strong signal of recovery and confidence. «European threading tools market is essential for our company, – said Terumitsu Itoh, Yamawa International CEO – we are already leader in the main Asian markets by now and we are really confident that, thanks to the new company and to an even stronger partnership with Sorma, we will be more effective in serving our customers with stronger focus and support, establishing Yamawa as one of the main and more reliable brands for threading solutions in Europe».

«Sorma’s partnership with Yamawa started in 1980 and allowed the two companies to grow and become stronger and stronger together over the years, – explained Alessandro Sorgato, Yamawa Europe General Manager – the foundation of Yamawa Europe is the right way to support directly existing and new customers with plenty of services aimed at making the whole potential of Yamawa product range and know-how easily and more rapidly available to our customers».


The Yamawa Europe headquarters will be based in Mestre-Venice (Italy), leveraging former Yamawa European Stock Centre, located at Sorma headquarters.
