Sugihara bars started manufacturing chainsaw bars in 1967 by Hideo Sugihara. Japan has always had a reputation for excellence forging and working steel. Having the knowledge to manufacture quality chainsaw bars is not something that is gained overnight. It is a complex process of which cutting out the initial bar is only one part.
Sugihara bars have been produced by the Sugihara family since the factory began and knowledge has been passed from father to son. Tomo Sugihara (son of Hideo Sugihara) grew up understanding and building chainsaw bars. Yuki Sugihara (son of Tomo Sugihara) now heads the marketing department of the company. Many of the employees who work in the factory have worked there for one or even two generations. Other manufacturers may produce in different factories in different parts in the world. Sugihara bars have always been produced in the same factory by the same family.
