Sugino is one of the oldest bicycle component companies in the world. The factory opened in 1910 in Nara, near Osaka, Japan.

There was a time when Sugino's cranksets were everywhere. In the 1970s and 1980s, before Shimano's overwhelming dominance, Sugino cranksets were big sellers and highly desired. Sugino chainrings of the era were compatible with Campagnolo and cost a fraction of the Italian maker's product, making them the go-to replacement.

Sugino also produced seat posts and marketed SR-branded derailleurs made by SunTour

But, like SunTour and Dia Compe, Sugino was run over by the Shimano relentless steamroller. The company did survive, and though much smaller than in its glory days, still produces fine product. And, it is still run by the Sugino family.
