Project Description

Mizuno Golf Fitting


From a six meter steel rod heated up to 1200°C, clobbered by a 1000 ton hammer, to an elegant and precise golf club ground by eye and hand. For thousands of years, the Japanese forging tradition has been employed to create some of the world’s finest swords and tools. In combination with Mizuno’s market leading research and development, cutting-edge technology and stunning craftsmanship, Mizuno can proudly say that we believe we produce some of the best irons in the world. Each and every club is produced with the user in focus.

Producing the best product is always our main focus. We contribute our energy on R&D and exploring new technologies. While some product development is carried out in Mizuno US, Atlanta, most is still done in Osaka Head office, Japan. It is the place where the major decision – from determining of the world , to deciding what number to give the latest prototype model, which affects the future of Mizuno golf are taken. But it is also where the first seeds of a new golf club are sown.

Our forging process guarantees that each metal rod’s natural grain is preserved in every step of the process. This is what gives the club its enhanced feel and consistency. The forging processes are done in Mizuno’s business partner, Chuo Industries Ltd. The foundry produces 6,000 clubheads a day.

At Mizuno Technics we make the final refinements. Grinding is done by hand, and 30 pairs of hands and eyes ensure each forged iron’s quality. Mizuno Technics finish the forged heads arriving from Chuo, by taking over the process such as club refinement, assembly and customizing. This makes the Mizuno Technics the place where the Mizuno brand’s values of technology, quality and individualism align. The factoty builds 2,000 clubs every day.
