The History Juki America, Inc

Juki Corporation, the parent company of Juki America, Inc., has been a world leader in sewing machine technology for over half a century. The firm now supplies 150 nations with sewing equipment and apparel-related products, making up 51.7% of their overall revenue. The balance of their business includes home sewing machines, electronics, mail inserting equipment, electronic assembly and test systems, health care products and jewelry.

Juki's insight into the world of sewing machine manufacturing began with home machines in 1947, before progressing to basic industrial machines, electronic units and the automated sewing systems used today. Their dedication to the manufacture of the highest quality product awarded them the coveted Deming Prize for "Outstanding Achievement in Quality" in 1981. Throughout the years, Juki has continued to follow its corporate philosophy of providing the customer with superior products and service through total quality control.

Juki in the Western Hemisphere

In 1974, Juki realized the importance of a growing U.S. market, and subsequently established Juki Industries of America in New York City. This subsidiary grew to account for 21% of Juki's global business, and moved to a larger facility in Saddle Brook, New Jersey. By 1988, Juki's market had again expanded, and a new U.S. headquarters was built to handle administrative, sales, marketing, parts, technical and warehousing services. The company name was officially changed to Juki America, Inc., and the Canadian market was added. A sister company, Juki Panama S.A., was incorporated in 1978 to handle the Latin American market. As business grew throughout Central and South America, this subsidiary was moved to the new headquarters in Wayne, New Jersey and renamed Juki Latin America, Inc.  In 1993, Juki America, Inc. and Juki Latin America, Inc. merged under the name of Juki America, Inc.

Union Special Joins Juki

Juki Corporation purchased Union Special Corporation (located in Huntley, Illinois) in 1988. For over 100 years, Union Special has been well known in the world apparel industries for their high quality chainstitch machine lines. The companies sales and marketing divisions then merged to become Juki Union Special, Inc. from 1996 to 2006.

Company Name Changed to Juki America, Inc.

In November of 2006, the corporate name was again changed from Juki Union Special, Inc. to Juki America, Inc.  The company has expanded in staff and markets both Juki and Union Special sewing equipment and parts through their authorized distribution network. These distributors, strategically located throughout the Western Hemisphere, are trained directly by Juki staff to provide sales, marketing, technical service and training in the true Juki quality tradition.  Juki America headquarters is presently located in Doral, Florida to best serve the North and South American markets.
