Origin of the company name “Tsukumo (九十九)”

Chinese character “百” means 100 and read as “Mo”. “九十九” means 99 (tsuku in Japanese) and reaches 100 by one more step. Therefore, it is read as “Tsukumo”. With its devotion to manufacturing, Tsukumo always emphasizes on efforts to complement the “one more step” without being satisfied perpetually seeking for perfect. In addition, gods or spirits are believed to reside in tools over the long years of use. We called them as Tkukumo’s (99) gods in Japan. Therefore, we named the company as “Tsukumo”.
