Yamazaki Mazak Corporation (ヤマザキマザック株式会社, Yamazaki Mazakku Kabushiki-gaisha) is a Japanese machine tool builder based in Oguchi, Japan.[3] In the United States, Russia[4] and UK it is known as Mazak.


The company was founded in 1919 in Nagoya by Sadakichi Yamazaki as a small company making pots and pans.[5] During the 1920s it progressed through mat-making machinery to woodworking machinery to metalworking machine tools, especially lathes.[6] The company was part of Japan's industrial buildup before and during World War II, then, like the rest of Japanese industry, was humbled by the war's outcome.

During the 1950s and 1960s, under the founder's sons, Yamazaki revived, and during the 1960s it established itself as an exporter to the American market.[7] During the 1970s and 1980s it established a larger onshore presence in the USA, including machine tool-building operations,[8] and since then it has become one of the most important companies in that market and the global machine tool market.

In 1980s, the European manufacturing plant was established in Worcester, U.K., and a worldwide sales and customer support network was created. Currently, the corporation runs 10 factories worldwide - 5 in Japan, 2 in China, 1 in Singapore, 1 in the USA, 1 in the UK.
