A leading global engineering solutions provider
Experts in bespoke medical, aerospace and industrial component assembly and manufacturing.
Our exotic name belies our local origins – to this day, Takumi is servicing customers globally, operating in the same townland in Ireland where Gerry Reynolds, our founder, grew up. As an engineering graduate, he emigrated to Japan and within six months he had become proficient in the Japanese language and had assimilated well. The Japanese work environment was a great learning experience for the young graduate – processes such as lean, kanban and Gemba were just everyday practices. After six years, Gerry was transferred back to Ireland, where he was eager to implement what he had learned in Japan. It was the start of the Celtic Tiger years in Dublin, and Irish machine shops at that time were not the technologically advanced places they are today. Gerry aimed to create a machine shop to impress the most discerning customers; a machine shop to be proud of. In 1998, Gerry, along with right-hand man, Eddie Byrne, set up Takumi.
