About Us

Our History

SATO KOGYO traces its roots to one of the oldest turnkey contractors in Japan. Established in 1862 and headquartered in Tokyo, SATO KOGYO laid the cornerstone of modern building technology by focusing on and developing newer and more efficient construction methodologies that are still relevant around the world today.

Over a rich history of more than 160 years, SATO KOGYO has accomplished many building and civil engineering projects of varying scale, nature and complexity in Japan, Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, China, Indonesia, Vietnam, Ethiopia, Afghanistan, Middle East, Europe and North America.

In 1972, the firm recognised the growing construction activities in the Asia Pacific region and expanded its footprints rapidly beyond Japan. Over the last decades, SATO KOGYO has set up offices in Singapore, Malaysia, Thailand, Cambodia, Myanmar, China, Indonesia and Vietnam, where some of these offices continue to be active today.
