Company

Akira is an established manufacturer, built to handle installation and sales for large scale industrial electrical infrastructure, pumps, and turbines for the Hitachi Engineering Corporation. In our history, Akira has taken part in private (organizations) and government contracts concerning irrigation, structure, urban development, engineering, and the manufacturing of parts for long range missiles and communication equipment for “The Department of Defense”.

After over 50 years, we have proudly grown to more than 1000 employees.

Akira Products – Our golf division was born in 2001. Our Founders believed that our knowledge in material development and our advanced engineering savvy would carry into the Golfing Industry, allowing us to develop and debut an innovative line of products that elevates the enthusiasms of all golfers.

We want you to know that we are not followers…… We are always at the front line of new challenges……

The inception of our brand and the company took place with this dream and passion in mind.….. To do so, we wanted to elevate and improve the games of average amateur golfers and make their dreams come true. But how? The answer was; “Challenge, innovation and commitment to new design concepts.” Our product debut was a 425cc driver. While the trend and industry average for driver head volume back then was around 300cc, we instantly became the subject of harsh skepticisms in the golf world. Little did anyone know that all drivers in the market would become 460cc in a matter of a few years…

We continued our challenges by adapting new material, coming up with new composite structures and so on…

Achieving several years of commercial success, Akira made a commitment to undergo professional player sponsorships in the JGTO tour. We took this opportunity to create a PROTOTYPE Series of club heads (designed and tailored, based on the feedback from our professionals), and debuted the PROTOTYPE Series in the hands of our Athletes to test our clubs in competitive grounds of the professional golf arena. Why did we make this risky and costly commitment? Because we wanted to make professional player’s dream come true……

The Results: Last year, two of our professional staff players won on Japan tour. Kenichi Kuyboya had a comeback win, and almost won the Japan Open the week after. Kouichiro Kawano, a rookie on the JGTO, won for the first time with Akira’s PROTOTYPE Series in his bag. We made their dreams come true. Their wins were validations of our hard work, and the quality of our brand continues to solidify our presence in the golf industry.

In 2011, we launched our USA headquarters in California, for the purpose of participating in professional player support in the US PGA tour. After 18 months, we are regarded as a serious golf equipment manufacture by the PGA tour community. We have validated the quality and performance of our PROTOTYPE Series by having clubs in play every week in the PGA tour. We have dreams of succeeding and growing our brand in the PGA tour and American golf market. The dreams will come true… And we are working very hard to achieve it.

What can we say about why our line is so unique? We can provide golfers with quality and performance which other mass produced products have a hard time delivering.  What makes our PROTOTYPE Series unique is that they are produced in small batches which allow more monitoring, care, and we’ve met the people that create our product in the factory. Since we only produce a small number of driver heads, we set the COR high at production, to inspect each one, and only the “hottest” heads within the equipment rule will be in the hands of our customers and the professional players. We’ve chosen few people to finish our wedges and iron products, for the purpose of continuity. Subtle detail such as this is crucial to club performance, and is what our PGA tour professionals expect when using our product day in and day out.

Professionals or not, we sincerely hope for all golfers to feel the exhilaration and excitement that Golf has to offer. Yes, golf takes time, practice, and diligence, but with the right equipment, Akira can introduce you to the greatest game ever played. This is the essence of Akira’s spirit and what motivates us to push the expectations of Golf as we know it.

For all golfers in Malaysia and golfers all over the world, we want to become the brand that is loved by many golfers of all skill levels, ages and genders. “Creating the brand that elevates the enthusiasms of all golfers” is our pulse that we carry from the drawing board, and into to the hands of the Golfer.

We appreciate your support. Dreams will come true……………
