The history of Sakura goes back to 1871, the early Meiji period. Prior to 1870, the company was called Iwashiya, and it manufactured and sold pharmaceuticals throughout Japan. The medical equipment division of Iwashiya was formed in 1871, and by 1887, the trademark Sakura (literally, “cherry blossom”) was registered. For the next 90 years, the company manufactured a variety of medical equipment including the first Japanese microscope. In 1962, the company name was changed to Sakura Finetechnical Co., Ltd.
Sakura has achieved its success and solid reputation by providing timely, ingenious solutions for everyday challenges that laboratories have to deal with. Sakura Finetek Europe has been established in 1994 and currently employs approximately 180 staff, covering various locations in Europe.
