Sanyo New York was established in 1978 by Sanyo Shokai of Tokyo specifically to target the North American Market. Sanyo Shokai is one the largest apparel manufactures in Japan which has a long rich history dating back to 1943. It was the first company to treat wool gabardine for water repellancy. In 1986, the company built its own state-of the-art production facility in Oneonta, NY, making in the first Japanese company to hold such a presence in the United States.
The Company takes pride in being an innovative outerwear company, producing contemporary coats and jackets. The implementation of cutting-edge technology, in order to continually exceed the needs and expectation of our discerning customers, defines our products from inception to delivery.
It is the philosophy of the company that the boundaries that once existed between the rainwear and outerwear categories have all but disappeared. Appropriately, then, the company's tag line is Rainwear/Anywhere.
Ongoing efforts in researching new materials and environmentally-friendly manufacturing processes are evidenced by the unique features found in our coats today, which serve to elevate the Sanyo brand to a category all its own.
Sanyo places great value of integrity, conducting business with our customers as the main focus, which makes the experience of owning a Sanyo coat in incomparable one.
Today, the Sanyo lines include Sanyo Collection, Sanyo Outerwear, and Sanyo Lux Wool Collection. Each brand addresses a specific market, from the new hire to the top executive.
Sanyo is carried by prestigious retailers throughout the United States and Canada.
