Big Kaiser Precision Tooling Inc. will change its name to Big Daishowa Inc. effective January 1, 2022. 

The company says the name change will not impact operations, product lines, staff, distribution or licensing agreements in North America. It will continue to offer the same precision tool holders, cutting and boring tools, workholding, tool measurement systems and accessories manufactured in Japan, Europe and the United States.

“Big Daishowa is a global leader of tooling systems, and we have been a member of the Big Daishowa group of companies for many years,” said Jack Burley, president and COO.

“The name change is a natural evolution in this relationship. Being known as Big Daishowa in North America will strengthen our corporate presence on a global scale. Our customers won’t notice any change in our business day-to-day. They will receive the same superior products, personal support and performance guarantee we’ve been delivering for more than 30 years.” 

Big Daishowa Inc. has manufacturing facilities in North America, Switzerland and Japan. In addition, it serves as the North American representative of Speroni tool measuring machines, Sphinx high performance drills, mptec measuring stands, Tekusa spindle cleaners and the UNILOCK zero-point workholding system.
