Welcome to EKO

A Message from the President.

Our goal is to continue leading our industry, working with customers and partners to develop the most accurate instruments in the world, the solutions they need, and exciting new innovations.

During my career, I have seen and experienced many cultural and technological changes in the world, but none more exciting, with more potential benefit and consequence, than what we see now.

The shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy is nothing short of a revolution, a once in a century opportunity to help usher in a new era of sustainability, environmental awareness, and climate action.

At EKO Instruments, we design and develop scientific instruments, systems, and sensors used worldwide for climate and environmental research. Already, our products play a critical role in the success of large-scale renewable, solar and wind power projects. As we approach our centenary as a company, we are determined to do more.

We are also committing to the next 100-years through our EMPOWER programme, supporting the next generation of scientists, designers, and engineers to achieve their goals, advance their ideas, and build a better, more sustainable, future.



EKO Instruments was founded in 1927 in Osaka, Japan.

Now headquartered in Tokyo with offices in the United States and Europe, EKO continues to grow, supporting environmental research and renewable energy projects through continuous innovation, industry-leading turn-key solutions, and an uncompromising commitment to quality.
