The founder of HARIO, Hiromu Shibata, established his glass factory in Kanda Sudacho, Tokyo in 1921 and started the production of laboratory glassware.
The name of HARIO originates from the ancient name of glass "HARI (玻璃)", and the meaning of "O (王)" is king in Japanese. Thus HARIO (or 玻璃王) means “the King of Glass” with an ambition to become the No. 1 glass manufacturer.
Released Coffee Syphons
In 1949 Hario produced a family-use coffee syphon “Hiromu 50,” which was named after the founder’s name, Hiromu Shibata.
Hario since then kept developing coffee syphon, and in 1967, it released “Model 70” which occupied 70% of the market share, allowing Hario to become a leading manufacturer of the Japanese coffee market.
HARIO's factory in Japan doesn’t have any chimney due to zero emission of polluting gases.
In 1972, HARIO succeeded in developing an "all-electric melting furnace," which allows to use only electricity throughout the manufacturing process.
Respecting and contributing to surrounding communities has been the mission of HARIO.
New HQ in Tokyo
If you ever walk through the nostalgic, vibrant district of Tokyo, known as Nihon-bashi, you might bump into the building with profound feeling, made of stone.
The historic building, which had been used as a former bank and is registered as a cultural heritage of Tokyo, was renovated in 2001 into the HARIO's offices/showroom.
Release of V60
After numerous trials and errors, supported by the spirit of Japanese craftsmanship, V60 coffee dripper came to the light of the world.
