Kalamazoo, Mich.—Humphrey Products and Koganei Corp. commemorated the 50th anniversary of their partnership with a tree planting ceremony on Friday, June 8. The Japanese maple tree was planted in the Zen garden behind Humphrey Products. Fifty years ago, an alliance was forged between North American pneumatics manufacturer, Humphrey Products, and the Japanese pneumatic manufacturer, Koganei Corp. This mutually beneficial partnership blossomed into one of the largest pneumatic offerings available globally.
Spanning five continents and backed by more than 100 years of knowledge, Humphrey Products and Koganei Corp. provide quality products for many markets, along with top-notch customer service.
The Japanese maple tree has been selected as the symbol of the 50th anniversary of the partnership. This tree is considered a sign of grace and is associated with peace and serenity of the world’s elements. It often represents balance and practicality and is called “kito” in Japanese, which means “calm,” “rest” or “peace.” The Japanese maple tree is being planted in the Zen garden as a tribute to the long-lasting relationship between the two companies.
