Barudan is one of the leading embroidery machinery manufactures of the world. In order to cater to the worldwide demand of "Barudan", companies over the globe have been set up to meet the need of our customers over the last 4 decades. It all started in 1962, when Mr. Yoshio Shibata who was the founder of Barudan Co., Ltd, introduced the first embroidery machine to the Japanese market. Since then, many updates and technological jumps had been made in both machine design and performances have been done. For instance, in 1972, Barudan developed the first jump system that enabled a significant increase in stitch length to be sewn.
