History

Komori Corporation was founded in Japan in October of 1923. Just two years later, the first 32” manual sheetfed press was developed. Komori has already seen the purpose of education and in 1968, the “Komori Printing School” was established, the first-ever printing school in the world. 

1984 marked the founding of Komori Europe Limited in Leeds (UK), now Komori U.K. Limited. Komori-Chambon S.A. was established in the French city of Orleans 5 years after that and focusses on packaging printing presses, the Komori France office came two years after that. Our Italian branch Komori Italia was established the same year, 1991. Nowadays, our European headquarters are located in the same building in Utrecht as Komori International Netherlands.

We launched the world’s first B1 digital imaging press “Project D” at drupa 2000. The next drupa saw the introducing of our “Komori Lithrone S40”-series. 2008 was the year we announced “Lithrone SX40”, a year after the “S44” and “SX29” models.

Our ground-breaking H-UV development was honoured by the Japanese Society of Printing Science and Technology in 2011. The Lithrone G40 was announced a year after that. The first-ever digital Komori printing press Impremia IS29 was launched in 2016.
