Company Introduction

At Nankaigosen we put our 50 years of experience in the circular knit capital of Japan to work for you to bring superior synthetic materials to market. Using primarily high quality nylon and polyester yarn that we manufacture in-house we are able to make a wide range of high performance textiles that are highly customizable to our customer’s needs. High elasticity, soft touch, and fabrics with special features such as the ability to generate heat, kill bacteria, and deodorize are the reason why major brands continue to source materials from us. We are particularly proud of our marine focused materials which are being used by wetsuit manufacturers all over Japan.

The quality of our fabric can be attributed to three main factors: high quality yarn, high quality machines, and high quality people. Without one or the other we would not be able to achieve results that are up to our standards. From the yarn we use, to our 25 texturing/twisting/knitting machines, to the people who operate them, we are very particular. Only high spec made in Japan machines are used in our manufacturing process and due to our location and time spent in the industry we have developed a strong relationship with the machine manufacturers which means that down time due to machine trouble is very rare because manufacture knowledge and parts are right on our doorstep. Couple this with our technicians’ experience and knowledge and there is little that we can’t do within the circular knit field and we do it all with high reliability. High spec yarn, high spec machines, and high spec technicians deliver a superior product.
