Where are Okuma products made?
Okuma is unique in that it manufacturers the majority of its products in its own factories. From its high tech machining workshop in Taiwan to its state of the art rod factory in China all of its factories work on the same principles of innovating and developing the highest quality product.
The Okuma NZ team visit these factories on a regular basis and have a close hand in the reel development. Okuma NZ customise and design its entire rod range for NZ conditions. A lot of global product testing is also done in our neck of the woods as we have such a wide range of conditions and species.
