Originated in the Edo period, Hara Trading Co., Ltd., experiencing daily challenge and change for over 60 years, is developing business based on two business domains.
At the time of initial foundation, we specialized in silk material as a textile trading company, but we have transitioned to Nylon material called Typewriter Ribbon, and over to Imaging Supplies such as cartridge replacement parts.
Finally, again as a textile trading company, we have begun the baby and kids business.
Welcome to our Imaging Components and Remanufactured Toner Cartridges Business Division.
We, Hara Trading, are located in Yokohama city. Yokohama Port opened in 1859 and opened the eyes of the world to new commerce opportunities. Hara Trading opened its doors in 1955 to embrace these global opportunities and started textile and printing ribbon business in Yokohama, and have been a leader in the distribution of cartridge components for remanufacturers for over twenty five years.
As a visionary leader of the remanufacturing industry, Hara Trading distributes superior components quickly to support all the remanufactures. In addition to Hara Trading’s distribution abilities, we offer technical support and an education center for customers’ hands-on training in remanufacturing processes.
We have committed to investing a lot of resources in order to support the remanufacturing industry and being an industry leader in the imaging aftermarket. We support all the remanufactures and end users who respect genuine remanufactured toner cartridges by providing the highest value, technical service and high quality imaging solutions.
Welcome to our Textile and Kids GLOCAL Division offering Baby & Kids Gears and Apparel OEM.
Why we started?
My name is Masato Emori, president and CEO of Hara Trading. I have a family of 3 sons. It is full of life, with many laughter, fighting and crying. When our second baby was born, I tried very hard to participate in childcare. Although I was overwhelmed by work and as a result left everything to my wife, I never stopped thinking of a way to help and participate. This process resulted to my deep understanding of baby products - baby carriages, baby carriers, baby bouncers, high chairs, cribs, toys, nursing bottles, diaper changing pads etc.
Our company originally started off as a textile trading company. Therefore I soon began to wonder if I myself can produce baby textile products having deep experience in textile product development background in apparel.
Soon I was filled with so many ideas regarding the many things we wished were available for childcare.
That is how I decided to research and develop the baby & kids products.
Although we did not have a single customer in the baby & kids division in the beginning, we started gaining more and more customers who loved our products as our lineup grew larger. We find great joy in helping our customers and will continue providing helpful products that meet their needs - for everyone who is in need of our products, for new kids to be born, as well as my supportive family, and our office members who work very hard to make this happen.
Our mission is “Let us evolve our life with Baby & Kids, then family becomes delightful”.
