IKEDO got its start in Inazawa, Aichi Prefecture in 1969 as a plant dedicated to machining electrical components. The year 1977 was a turning point for us as we shifted to the field of manufacturing and machining of automotive parts. Since then, we have acted as a partner of Toyoda Gosei Co., Ltd., part of the Toyota group of companies, producing a variety of automotive components.
