Our Story

Who Is Maruyama?

In 1895, MARUYAMA MFG. CO., INC. was founded on a simple principle — to continue an unwavering commitment to produce durable, hardworking tools that are made to work for a living. For over a century, we have been defined by a bootstrap spirit with a passion for excellence.

The MARUYAMA and UCHIYAMA families began the family business of manufacturing fire extinguishers in 1895, which was followed by manual sprayers in 1918. With their development of the power sprayer in 1933, Maruyama played an important role in disaster control and prevention as well as food production in the agricultural industry during the postdepression years.

Throughout the years, Maruyama has become a world leading manufacturer of disaster prevention equipment, high pressure industrial pumps, sprayers and industrial 2-cycle hand-held landscape equipment.

MASANOBU OGASHIRA, President of Maruyama Group, along with the world-wide team, continue to carry on the passion and commitment that began with RYOJI UCHIYAMA and his son, HARUO UCHIYAMA and his grandson, TAKAHARU UCHIYAMA.

MARUYAMA continues to manufacture extreme-duty, commercial grade power equipment and sprayers for the agricultural and landscape industry for North America, South America, Canada and across Europe, Asia and world-wide. Our equipment is top-quality with unmatched dependability. People who depend on their equipment day in and day out should demand the best and that is what we provide.
