The Iida Tsunejiro which is the founder of the IIDA SENKO CO.,LTD. gives birth in Shiki-gun, Nara on February 23, 1878 (Meiji 11).
 
I find work as a probation mechanic in the dye works which I have will in a 17-year-old occasion, and an uncle [Kosaburo Fujita] runs in Kita-ku, Osaka-shi.
 
I learn a dyeing technology for ten years and ask for a small factory for Tenjinbashi line 2 in June, 1903 (Meiji 36) and I make a towel Bleaching factory and measure independence of the long-cherished desire.
 
The management was trials and tribulations, but took in the advanced technology from foreign country called work "yosarashi" at the time with one's blood and guts
 
With temperament and daring challenger spirit of the enterprise, I got on track little by little.
 
The Tsunejiro did that I contributed to the world in a motto in "which propered if" business was pleased with by a person with the best joy and I advanced and undertook the important posts such as the Osaka councilor, Osaka immensity small industrial guild Director, Higashiyodogawa hygiene ealdorman besides corporate management through postwar period in prewar days.

The factory of the Tenjinbashi line becomes small and establishes a new factory in the present location [Sugahara, Higashiyodogawa-ku] in October, 1920 (Taisho 9).
In the agriculture area where a rural scenery spreads through, I pull water in a reservoir from Yodogawa and purify it and use it and live now in those days.
After needing a big filtration pond by the dyeing business to use water in large quantities, and starting construction promptly, "the kuri ship" of the ancient cedar in the Emperor Nintoku times excavates it.
 It will be displayed as a precious ancient legacy product on the castle tower of Osaka-jo Castle.
The construction founding of the Bleaching Dyeing factory in this ground is said to be an industrial early settler in Higashiyodogawa-ku.
I sent it to the world in the name of the brand name "whole world" commencing with cotton cloth bleaching other than knit, and, in 1923, in the country, orders as I could not accept demand by a favorable reception than the cause in China, the Southeast Asia region either flooded in.
The business establishes unlimited partnership Hiroshi Iida Bleaching Dyeing factory for capital 450,000 yen expecting progress, further development in a favorable wind in 1938.

From a synthetic fiber boom to revival of the cotton knit
As for the times, the 30s began and went to the modernization for a password in "it is not after the war anymore" rapidly.
A synthetic fiber became the big boom and founded a synthetic fiber jersey rearranging factory in response to this for 35 years and I was completed more in a synthetic fiber tricot jersey dyeing rearranging factory for 38 years and entered the full-scale operation.
 I entered the period of the high growth of economy and moved from a synthetic fiber boom to the times of the cotton knit and I largely expanded the section and added pressure for the development of the product for high quality outers and I succeeded in the first mer cerais processing with cotton knit and came to acquire the patent of "the cotton knit mercerization machine".
I started QC circle activity to consult with about improvement of the quality for 44 years and gave big result by participation and the cooperation of all employees.
I change "IIDA SENKO CO.,LTD." and a name as the company name that I entrusted with the future on August 1, 1971.
In the year, I found a knit knit processing factory for improvement of rationalization and management.
I installed a self-developed first Japanese "opening-style consecutive refinement bleaching processing machine" here and showed big power for a mass production. The second unit was completed for 49 years and brought the cotton knit industry innovation.
Because the series of production duties marked becoming it, I introduced a computer, and a regime was established.
I served as the ceremony for the completion of the processing factory in October, 46, and "a ceremony of the 70th anniversary" was held brilliantly.
