President's Greeting

Nunotani Compass Factory was born in Nishi-ku, Osaka in 1892, when Founder Itaro Nunotani completed the first magnetic compass in Japan. Nunotani then started the manufacturing and marketing of magnetic compasses, and has advanced in line with the development of the shipbuilding industry.

The staff of the company joined forces to go through the time of uncertainties, and re-started its operations following war in 1946. Since then, Nunotani has envisioned the future of the nautical industry, and has developed related technologies and products, in addition to magnetic compasses. Our present portfolio of development, manufacturing and marketing includes engine telegraphs, logger units, various remote control units, rotating meters, Rudder Angle Indicator, wipers, Clear View Screen, wind direction & velocity meters, and so on.

We at Nunotani will continue to take every effort to contribute to the future of the nautical manufacturing industry. Thank you.
