Sanyo New York
Sanyo New York is a subsidiary of Sanyo Shokai, the largest apparel manufacturer in Japan, with over $1 billion in sales. Sanyo Shokai has a long and rich history, dating back to 1943. It was the first company, for example, to treat wool gabardine for water repellency. Sanyo New York was established in 1978 to specifically address the North American market. In 1986, the company built it’s own state-of-the-art production facility in Oneonta, NY, making it the first Japanese company to hold such a presence in the U.S.In 1999, the company was renamed Sanyo Shokai New York, Inc.
It is the philosophy of the company that the boundaries that once existed between the rainwear and outerwear categories have all but disappeared. Appropriately, then, the company’s tag line is Rainwear/Anywhere.
Today, Sanyo offers over 60 brands, including Sanyo Collection, Sanyo Concept, Sanyo Dress Essentials, and Sanyo Excellent, throughout the world. Each brand addresses a specific market, from the new-hire to the top executive. Clients include Barney’s New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue, among many other prestigious retailers.
