Pilot Pen

Namiki Manufacturing Co., Ltd., the predecessor of PILOT Corporation, was established in 1918 by Ryosuke Namiki and Masao Wada.  Envisioning business as more than just a way to make money, they aspired to make high-quality products domestically for overseas consumers and to showcase to the world Japan’s genuine abilities. That ambition has been passed down through their original five guiding principles to the present day to all employees. Today, PILOT’s products are sold in over 180 countries around the world and valued by countless consumers, and the PILOT Group is aiming to continue expanding business by keeping the five guiding principles alive in the hearts and minds of all employees worldwide:


” San‐Sha‐Tei‐Ritsu ”   Three forces in balance with each other

” U‐Ki‐Wa‐Sei‐Shin ”     Shared joys and shared sorrows

” Nan‐Kan‐Top‐Pa ”      Overcoming difficulties

” Ichi‐Nichi‐Is‐Shin ”     One step, one day

” Shi‐Sei‐Shin‐Ken ”      A very sincere approach
