About Oriimec

Oriimec Corporation of America Located in Erlanger, Kentucky, Oriimec Corporation of America is the North American sales and service branch of Orii & Mec Corporation, headquartered in Isehara, Japan.

Company History
The Orii Automatic Equipment Manufacturing Company was founded by Masaru Orii in 1962 in Tokyo, Japan after eight years of development on a private basis. In 1965, the company introduced the nation's first press room robot. The robot was called the Auto Arm OA-4, and was used to transfer work pieces from a magazine to a press die, operating with a high speed of 200 times per minute. The company continued to grow, producing a wide variety of automation equipment, including robots, coil handling systems, straightener/feeders and leveling equipment.

In 1984, Orii executive Kenji Fujimoto was tasked with establishing a branch office in the United States in order to provide sales and technical support for the growing North American Market. Mecha Tech Systems Corporation was established in 1986 in St. Marys, Ohio, as a wholly-owned subsidiary and its customer base continued to grow. In 1996, Mecha Tech Systems changed its name to Orii Corporation of America as the Orii name became more widely known internationally. In 1997, the U.S. office moved to the greater Cincinnati area to be more centrally located with better proximity to an international airport.

In 2000, Orii entered into a relationship with Automatic Feed Company of Napoleon, Ohio to manufacture the first American-made straightener/feeder combination unit under the name Automatic Orii, using Orii design technology and American electronic control systems. Also in 2000, Orii Corporation of Japan merged with Mec Machinery Company, Ltd. of Japan. As a result, Orii Corporation of America took over subsidiary operations for the Mec Division in North America and the name was changed to Oriimec Corporation of America.

Matsuoka Engineering Co. Ltd. was founded in Japan in 1972 by Takeji Matsuoka, who started a business to develop, manufacture and sell spring-forming machines and related devices and tools. In 1985, the company changed the name to MEC Machinery Co., Ltd. Today, MEC offers a variety of spring making machinery, including CNC multi-axis spring formers, CNC coiling machines for ultra-fine wire, NC spring formers, extension spring machines and torsion spring machines.

Since the 2000 merger, the Orii and Mec machinery lines have been engineered at the Orii & Mec Corporation plants in Japan and sold/serviced through branch offices all over the world. Orii & Mec Corporation is owned by Namura Shipbuilding Company Co., Ltd. of Japan, which is a publicly traded stock on the Osaka Securities Exchange.

Today, The Oriimec name has been adopted by the American office, as well as other branch sales and service offices throughout the world. Oriimec Corporation of America operates as a full-service branch office, offering Orii and Mec lines of machines and parts, and providing technical support and troubleshooting for both machinery lines.
