The IHI Corporation, Ionbonds Parent Company

In 2013, IHI celebrated its 160th anniversary. IHI’s predecessor, the Ishikawajima Shipyard, was founded in 1853 upon the arrival of Admiral Perry’s black ships in Uraga Bay and at the dawn of Japan’s modern age. Thus began the 160-year journey of dedicated pursuit of the potential of next-generation technologies at the cutting edge of engineering. From shipbuilding, land-based machinery, large infrastructure projects and equipment to complete factories, aviation and aerospace, IHI has expanded into a $15 billion company with over 40 major factories, a worldwide network of offices and 28 000 employees to support a wide range of engineering fields and pave the way for next-generation technology.
