In the 1946, just after the world warⅡhad ended, Yonex was established by using just a one horsepower motor. After refining the technique of wood manufacturing, Yonex started to manufacture badminton racquets in the 1957. In 1969, Yonex embarked in tennis racquets made with aluminum, and then in 1982, Yonex started to produce golf clubs made with raw carbon materials. Nowadays, Yonex has gotten into the snowboard and walking shoe industries as well. It has not been an easy ride during the company’s 60 year history. Yonex has learned that “the toughest situation makes the greatest chance.” This spirit will carry Yonex through all the challenges it takes to make the next 100 years successful.
