Message From the President

SHIMA SEIKI has strived continuously to develop products that benefit the industry under the corporate motto "Ever Onward," the culmination of which can be considered WHOLEGARMENT knitting technology. Beginning with the world's first fully automated glove knitting machine as its roots, we've made great strides to achieve the exclusive and valued WHOLEGARMENT 3D knitting technology. Celebrating our 20th anniversary,
SHIMA SEIKI has developed the new MACH2XS, a machine that has turned the impossible into possible, by successfully mounting spring-type sinkers on a 4-needlebed WHOLEGARMENT machine.

SHIMA SEIKI's WHOLEGARMENT is one of the most sustainable forms of textile production in existence by producing an entire garment without material waste therefore, helping return knit production to the US market reducing energy and costs required in shipping from offshore locations.

For three decades of dedicated service, Shima Seiki U.S.A. continues our mission to provide the best possible means of support to benefit our industry.

Our SHIMA SEIKI Design Center of New York (DCNY) located in the heart of the fashion industry in Manhattan opened in 2006 to enhance the apparel market and now, we are excited to open our new Los Angeles facility offering complete knit development support.

SHIMA SEIKI U.S.A. is proud to be your comprehensive source for all of your knitting needs.

Sincerely yours,


Seiichi (Senna) Nakaya
