Message From Representative

Tiger Corporation aims to be a company that will continue for 100 or 200 years based on our new corporate beliefs.

Since Tiger Corporation was founded in 1923, we have continued to deliver accessible household products for daily living. It all started with glass vacuum bottles and went on to expand to rice cookers, electric water heaters, and other cooking appliances. Since then, with the strength of our vacuum insulation technology and creative products which first capture the needs of customers, we have been able to deliver convenience and comfort to a variety of every day scenarios.

In 2012, Tiger Corporation formulated our new Corporate Beliefs. With our mission of “We will continue to create new every day essentials for the dining experience with ideas that produce warmth.” We aim to become a company that will continue to grow for 100 or 200 years. As globalization progresses, we have established sales bases in Shanghai, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and the U.S.A. In addition to our production base in Shanghai, we will open a new factory in Vietnam in 2012. As we make steady progress, we strive to spread joyous harmony throughout the world.

The vacuum bottle, which is the origin on which this company was founded, is a product that not only functions to keep drinks warm; it plays the role of magic tool that warms the hearts of those who drink from it. Even though the times may change, our resolve remains the same. Tiger Corporation will always continue to help put smiles on peoples’ faces so they can share their smiles with others, which will help people create sophisticated and comfortable lifestyles. We hope you continue to enjoy life with Tiger products and we look forward to your continued support in the future.
