Combination of Colors :
The three colors combined together make an outline of a hawk's head. The colors combined represent unity and team work. The president chose the hawk symbolism in honor of our main parent company at that time, Kikuchi Press of Japan. The original site of Kikuchi Press is Mitaka, Tokyo. Mi means three, while taka means hawk. Therefore, Mitaka translates to three hawks, which are represented in our logo. The vision of Trihawk began in Mitaka Japan. The plant in Austin, Indiana represents the second phase of a grand international dream, which links technology and engineering via the heart and hands of Japan and the United States.
