ZACROS Group Announces its Company Name Change to “ZACROS”

Fujimori Kogyo Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Tokyo, Representative Director and President: Taku Shimoda) announces the decision at the 94th Annual General Meeting of Shareholders to change the official company name from “Fujimori Kogyo Co., Ltd.” to “ZACROS Corporation,” effective October 1, 2024. Since 1994, “ZACROS,” meaning “uncharted forefront,” has been its business name and the icon of its history and DNA. For the past 30 years, ZACROS has consistently been at the forefront of innovation, embracing this title. This official legal name change signifies its commitment to further evolution as “the solution-creating company” going forward.


  • New Company Name: ZACROS Corporation


Inspiration behind the New Name:

The name “ZACROS” is a combination of the letter “Z,” representing ultimate/uncharted, and the Greek word “ACRO,” meaning peak/forefront. This symbolizes the strong will to look toward the future and explore new possibilities.

Since its foundation in 1914, this has been the utmost conviction. Yahiko Fujimori, the founder, once said, “Unique solutions emerge through challenge to the difficult and the unknown.” True to these words, he held a strong distaste for simple and passive mimicking and focused his efforts on developing new product concepts that did not exist in the market at the time. ZACROS members inherited the words of Yahiko and his spirit and infused them into the new company name.

In April 2024, ZACROS celebrated its 110th anniversary under the new management team. The company renews its commitment to the entrepreneurial spirit embedded in “ZACROS.” Under its 2030 business plan, ZACROS will aim at the unrecognized needs of its customers and society and advance its evolution as “the solution-creating company.”
