After inheriting Minpei-ware, the DANTO Company is established with paid-in capital of 10,000 yen at the site of the Ama factory (known today as the Awaji Island Factory), where it still has its headquarters. The company then starts making and selling tableware, vases, and toys.
With the commercial law coming into force, the company becomes a corporation and changes its name to “Danto Kabushikigaisha” (Danto Corporation).
After successfully developing domestically produced tiles of the same quality as imported ones, the company starts the first interior tile manufacturing operation in Japan.
The company increases its paid-in capital to 50,000 yen.
Danto opens the Osaka branch.
The full-scale manufacturing of interior wall tiles begins using molding machines.
