Shimano Iron Works, the predecessor of Shimano Inc., was founded in 1921 by Shozaburo Shimano in the city of Sakai, Osaka in Japan. The first production was the single freewheel of the bicycle, which required the utmost technical skill for the production. In 1951, the company name changed to Shimano Industrial Co., LTD.

Ltd. as the first overseas manufacturing base in 1973. In 1991, the company name company changed to Shimano Inc.
