Making Furniture by Anchor Technology

The factory where “taonta” furniture is made is an old ironworks factory originally established in Tomonoura, Fukuyama-shi, Hiroshima prefecture in 1951 as a blacksmith shop that made fishing-related gear.
While our history originated as a blacksmith shop, we have made and delivered parts vital to industry for use in suspension bridges, cranes, amusement parks, elevators and general buildings as well as furniture combining technical skills and technology including manual welding, robot welding, coating and 3DCAD, with precision cutting using 30 machine tools.

In 2016, we took over the facilities and technology from an anchor manufacturer that was forced to close its business due to the aging of its employees in spite of its high-level free forging skills (heating and shaping metals) and we began manufacturing anchors using the same technology as one hundred years ago.

Currently, by combining free forging skills using the knowledge of anchor-making and precision processing technology using the latest numerical control machine tools and robots, we can create unique designs that stand out from the crowd.

We look forward to your interest in our future activities.
