KING JIM is a manufacturer of information management products, offering its core products of "Files" and "Electronic products" for office use.

KING JIM was funded in 1927. It has started to sell "patented address book" and "seal impression book." Initially, the company was named "Meikando," which originated from both products.

In 1961, the company changed its name to "KING JIM" because the founder wished to be the king of office products. Afterward, "G File" (currently called KING FILE G), launched in 1964, has become the standard file for offices in Japan due to its excellent design and high functionality.

And in 1988, KING JIM launched the label printer "TEPRA." At first, it was sold to indicate titles on the spine paper of files. After that, "TEPRA" has been used in various situations, such as factories, shops, and offices. About 30 years after the product release, the cumulative sales exceed 10 million units. Now, "TEPRA" is the long seller product, and it has become synonymous with "label printer."

In 2017, KING JIM launched the new brand, "HITOTOKI," by which we would offer stationery that makes people feel more comfortable on casual days.

Please look at our state-of-the-art stationery, developed based on our management philosophy of "Developing original products and creating new culture to contribute to society."
