Our special feeling put in the copper ice cream spoon
- We are a company based on Tsubame-city in Niigata Prefecture and celebrate it’s 70th anniversary in 2016. “Tsubame Shindo Co., Ltd., was the company name at the time of establishment. “Shindo” means “Rolling out copper”. As the name says, we started a business from flattening copper and selling it as a material of tableware. Now we become a company dealing in a variety of stainless steel wire processed articles mainly and fortunately we celebrate the 70th year in business this year.
- To respect the copper business at the start and to appreciate stainless steel wire which is our main commodity now, we decided to make a product by flattening copper wire as a special project for the anniversary. We began the project from looking for a shape which can be made by pressing and flattening a copper wire. The process to make the idea into a product was one struggle after another, because we haven’t dealt with copper products for a long time. It might sound like an exaggeration, but this spoon represents our company history as a result.
