About Tiger Corporation

Tiger Corporation was born out of a longing for a place where people could gather together and enjoy hot water (tea) just as their mother used to make it for them, as Tiger Corporation‘s founder Takenori Kikuchi had envisioned during his childhood in the service industry. In 1923, the company was founded as “虎印魔法瓶製造卸菊池製作所”. The company began manufacturing and selling “虎印魔法瓶” for the Japanese market. Since then, we have been providing comfort and convenience in various scenes of daily life, from dining to outdoor activities, by manufacturing products using “Vacuum Insulation Technology” represented by glass vacuum flasks, vacuum insulated bottles, and tabletop pots, and “Heat Control Technology” such as rice cookers including electronic rice cookers created in 1970.

Inheriting the thoughts of our founder, our goal for the future is “we strive to spread joyous harmony throughout the world”. Even though times may change and countries may differ, our desire to bring families and friends together to spend happy and joyful times will never change. The magical technology that controls heat is now changing the future of industry and society. For the next 100 years, TIGER will continue to value its unique attitude toward manufacturing with sincerity and honesty, and will strive to create products that will be loved in our daily lives.

Origin of the name

In the early days of the vacuum flask industry, there were many cases of using the names of strong animals in product names to dispel the image that the flasks were made of glass and were therefore fragile. When the Great Kanto Earthquake occurred in 1923, most of the vacuum flasks of other companies stored in stores were broken. However, not a single one of Tiger’s vacuum flasks, which were designed to be durable, was destroyed, and all 100 flasks remained intact.
