What's Pigeon

What's Pigeon

One year after its founding in 1957, Pigeon Honyuki Honpo (Nursing Bottle Manufacturer) Corporation has quickly gained recognition as a nursing bottle manufacturer in hospitals and health centers. By 1963, the company launched a more diverse line of products, offering disposable diapers and washing brushes. It was in 1966 when Pigeon changed its name to Pigeon Corporation, thereby shedding “nursing bottle manufacturer” from its name to symbolize its transition to the wider field of child care products.

Widely considered to be a symbol of peace, the pigeon reflects our desire for your baby to grow up happily in a peaceful and prosperous society. Thus, Pigeon Honyuki Honpo Corporation (now Pigeon Corporation) was born under the leadership of founder and first president Yuichi Nakata. Since our inception up to today, our desire to deliver comfort, safety and quality care to babies and mothers through exceptional nursing products hasn’t changed, nor will it change in the future.

Our History

Our History

Driven with love at our very essence and core, we at Pigeon strongly believe that only love can beget love. Through the years we have continuously upgraded and expanded our product line to fully embody love and better meet the needs of mothers and babies, both physical and emotional.

Last 2017 marked our 60th anniversary since our founding in 1957. From a small family venture with humble beginnings to a household brand recognized worldwide, we’ve certainly come a long way. Our story began in 1957 when Yuichi Nakata developed a more streamlined prototype of an infant feeding apparatus, which eventually led to the establishment of Pigeon as a nursing bottle manufacturer. A year later, the company entered the child care industry, expanding its offerings to include disposable diapers, washing brushes and the like.

Continuing from its success in Japan as a child care products brand, Pigeon began to look for more opportunities for growth overseas. It began exporting its products in 1970, opening its first overseas branch in Singapore. Entering the nursing care business by 1975, it was at this point when the company started to evolve from a family business to a public company with its own corporate identity.

Come 1990, Pigeon has begun operations in Thailand and Indonesia, and by 2000, continued its plans for global expansion under the leadership of then-president Seiichi Matsumura, starting with China.

In 2004, US-based Lansinoh Laboratories, Inc., then an OEM supplier of items like nursing pads, became a member of the Pigeon Group. This partnership led to the expansion of Lansinoh from Europe and North America, to India, Malaysia, South Korea and Turkey.

In 2013, Shigeru Yamashita, who was the first president of Pigeon Thailand and the Pigeon-Lansinoh merger, took charge of Pigeon’s global strategy, eventually developing the Pigeon Way in 2014.

Fast forward to today, many milestones, achievements and accolades later, and we still are working to improve our corporate values in our mission to be the global number one and most trusted manufacturer of baby products by all families.

Pigeon and Lansinoh

Further push for global expansion led Pigeon to tap into the US market by fully acquiring Lansinoh Laboratories in 2004. Founded in 1984, Lansinoh first entered the industry with HPA® Lanolin, a cream designed to soothe and protect sore and dry nipples of breastfeeding mothers. Since then, it has quickly become a market leader in innovative breastfeeding accessories locally and abroad. Capitalizing on credibility and quality of Lansinoh and its products, Pigeon began to market its own line of nursing pads, breast pumps and milk storage bags under the Lansinoh brand.

As a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Pigeon Group, what started out for Lansinoh as an OEM agreement eventually turned into an opportunity to expand its initial product offerings and market reach. It soon took over mOmma, which markets nursing bottles and drinking cups, in 2010, and Health Quest, which specializes in healthcare services, in 2011.

The partnership between Pigeon and Lansinoh led to the latter’s expansion to Belgium, China, the United Kingdom, Germany, and most recently, Turkey.

This partnership led to the expansion of Lansinoh from Europe and North America, to India, Malaysia, South Korea and Turkey. In 2013, Shigeru Yamashita, who was the first president of Pigeon Thailand and the Pigeon-Lansinoh merger, took charge of Pigeon’s global strategy, eventually developing the Pigeon Way in 2014.

Fast forward to today, many milestones, achievements and accolades later, and we still are working to improve our corporate values in our mission to be the global number one and most trusted manufacturer of baby products by all families.
