AUZAC 70th Anniversary Video
This video was made to commemorate the 70th anniversary of Auzac's
founding in 1945.
Tomonoura City, in Hiroshima Prefecture, where Auzac is based, prospered in the old days through trade in the port. It was a town with smiths and a thriving manufacturing industry focused on ship-building.
For the past 70 years, Auzac has grown together with the community. We have always valued the power of people as the foundation of manufacturing.
As we continue to support the rigging and lifting industries, we hope to be a company that lasts for 100 years.
