Eight Tool Launches New Manufacturing Facility in Tottori

Article - May 16, 2024

With the construction of its new manufacturing plant, hex key manufacturer Eight Tool is ideally placed to target international expansion.

Established in the late 1950s, hex key wrench manufacturer Eight Tool today boasts more than 2,000 product lines and enjoys the trust of industry professionals from around the world.

“One of our company’s strengths,” President Yasuhiro Oka explains, “lies in our ability to make specialized custom products tailored specifically to individual client requests.”

After some teething problems, a new manufacturing facility, the firm’s fourth in the prefecture of Tottori, is now operating at full scale, enabling the firm to meet increasing customer demand and accommodate add-on orders. 

Machines have been installed to work out distortions that would previously have been corrected manually. Meanwhile, processes that were once outsourced can now be partially completed in-house.

“With greater production capacity,” Mr. Oka confirms, “we can cater to even more unique requests.”

New employees working at the facility will also bring a fresh perspective as the company strives to expand its overseas portfolio. 

With established partnerships in East and Southeast Asia and a subsidiary in the U.S., Eight Tool is looking to cater to orders in America, Africa, Western and Central Asia, as well as the Middle Eastern countries and Europe, a development that should ensure even greater success in the future.
