100 Years of Tiger Corporation

• 1923: Tiger Founded—Tiger Brand Vacuum Bottles Survive the Great Kanto Earthquake Unscathed

While living as an apprentice eating cold tea over rice in the winter, Takenori Kikuchi, the founder of Tiger Corporation, always wished he could drink hot water (or tea) like his mother used to make for him, and in 1923, he founded the company, Torajirushi (Tiger) Vacuum Bottle Company. The company began manufacturing and selling Tiger vacuum flasks in Japan.

In the same year, the Great Kanto Earthquake, which was recorded as the largest earthquake disaster in history, destroyed most of the thermos bottles manufactured by other companies, but all 100 of the sturdy and ingenious Tiger vacuum bottles remained intact. The fact that not a single vacuum bottle was destroyed soon became known throughout the industry, and orders flooded in from all over Tokyo. Three years later, Tiger vacuum bottles would own 85% of the market share.

The founder Takenori Kikuchi’s straightforward approach to manufacturing in pursuit of products that will be loved for a long time is reflected in the values that our company employees hold today—creativity with a focus on substance and reliability with complete transparency.

• 1970: 炊きたて Electric Rice Warmer Launched (First Model in the Current Line of Electronic Rice Warmer Products)

After the launch of the first electric rice warmer, the first electronic rice cooker was released the following year. The product was an instant hit and became a bestseller.
In addition, the 炊きたて brand continues to be a national brand of jar rice cookers more than 50 years after its launch.

• 1990–: Sales Offices and Production Facilities Established Around the World The global network continues to expand.

With sales offices in China, Taiwan, Hong Kong, India, and the US, in addition to Japan, the company currently sells its products in approximately 60 countries around the world. In addition to Japan and China, factory operations as the production facilities are launched in Vietnam in November 2012.

Tiger products are sold not only in Asia and the United States, but also in Europe and the Middle East.

• 2006: An Industry First! Earthenware IH Rice Cooker and Warmer Released in Pursuit of Delicious Rice Through Heat Control

“Earthenware pot kettle,” with a real earthen pot for the inner pot, is released. The earthenware pot has a high heat storage capacity, and brings out the natural sweetness of the rice, as well as its aroma. It was very challenging to develop a product that combines a machine in the form of an IH rice cooker and natural material in the form of an earthenware pot. But we continuously came up with ideas such as firing the earthenware pot three times, and went on to release the product. Loved by its users, the earthenware pot kettle is a long-selling product that typifies the Tiger brand.

• 2018: Carried by the Kounotori 7 Spacecraft, Tiger Works with JAXA to Develop a Compact Recovery Capsule with a Double Insulated Vacuum Container

This is a compact reentry capsule developed to be carried by JAXA to the International Space Station on the Kounotori 7 spacecraft. Its purpose is to recover materials from the International Space Station (ISS). Recovery capsules that reenter the atmosphere need to be highly heat resistant and extremely strong. Tiger was responsible for the development of a double vacuum insulated container to carry important samples from experiments in space and other such things.

• 2022: Tiger’s First Vacuum-Insulated Carbonated Bottle (MTA-T) Released, Capable of Holding Carbonated Drinks

Tiger introduces a new carbonated beverage bottle that uses our company’s unique BubbleLogic carbonation stopper structure to safely carry carbonated beverages anywhere and keep them cold. The product earns the 2022 Nikkei Superior Products and Services Award, sixth in Nikkei Trendy’s 2022 Top 30 Hit Products, and the Grand Prize in the 2022 Industry Hit Product Awards in the general merchandise department.
