Founded by Genzo Shimadzu Sr. in 1875 established what was to eventually become Shimadzu Corporation in Kyoto, Japan with the manufacturing of physical and chemical instruments.

In 1877, Genzo Shimadzu Sr. conducted Japan’s first manned balloon flight. In 1896, only a few months after Dr. Roentgen’s discovery of X-rays, Genzo Jr. and Professor Muraoka of Kyoto University succeeded in taking the first X-ray images in Japan. In 1909, Shimadzu developed Japans first medical X-ray apparatus.

With the pioneering spirit of our founders, Shimadzu continued to make global contributions with the development of a large number of innovative products, including photoelectric spectrophotometers, gas chromatographs and the world’s first X-ray TV Systems.

Shimadzu Corporation has established Shimadzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd, an indirectly-owned subsidiary, as Malaysia has shown remarkable economic growth in recent years and is projected to continue growing for the future.

Shimadzu Malaysia Sdn Bhd, abbreviated below as SML, which has established in 2014 is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Shimadzu (Asia Pacific) Pte Ltd, abbreviated below as SAP (head office: Singapore, Managing Director: Kiminobu Imura). Consequently, SAP’s Malaysia branch office, which has established in 2000 for direct sales of medical equipment, will be merged with analytical and measuring instruments and integrated into the new subsidiary. Shimadzu has earned a strong reputation in Malaysia for the quality and extensive service of Shimadzu X-ray systems. Shimadzu now intends to strengthen efforts to sell more high-end Angiography systems and develop the clinic market.

Previously, analytical and measuring instruments sales in Malaysia were conducted through Shimadzu’s local distributors. However, SML will now provide direct sales service capabilities. Shimadzu will continue to rely on the expertise of local distributors for sales of testing machine and non-destructive inspection systems.
