Narumi is the second largest manufacturer and supplier of tableware in Japan. They have been around since 1911 with the original name, Imperial Seito. However, it wasn’t until 1938 when Nagoya Seito built a new plant in a town called Narumi in Nagoya, Japan that the name “Narumi” was used. Later, in 1946, they started making tableware that would appeal to western tastes and exporting to the United States. In 1950 they changed their name to Narumi China Corporation. Through the years they have expanded to Tokyo and Nagoya, Japan; Singapore; Hong Kong; Shanghai, China; and Bekasi, Indonesia. In 1976 they began supplying the hotel and restaurant industry. In 2005 they changed their name to Narumi Shanghai Co.,Ltd. In 2015 they became a member of Ishizuka Group.
