Shibaura was founded in 1950 by two companies, Toshiba (Tokyo-Shibaura-Engineering) and IHI (Ishikawajima Harima Industries). The company originally began as a manufacturer of light and heavy engines. Only in 1961 they completed a tractor factory for manufacturing tractors up to 40 hp, in 2-wheel and 4-wheel versions. In 1978 the first series of tractors over 50 hp were brought into production. Shibaura is still a relatively young company and has grown very quickly compared to European standards.
At this moment the production takes place in four factories, of which the tractor factory in Matsumoto covers an area of about 35 acres. Also in Matsumoto there is a complete new engine factory.
