The remaining 50% was owned by The Japan Steel Works. Singer financed the retooling of the Pine factory in Utsunomiya. Initally machines made at the new plant were badged as Merritt but a year or so later once they were satisfied about the product quality, they changed to producing machines under the Singer brand name. By 1959 the Pine Sewing Machine Company was producing over 70,000 Singer machines a year. Although these were mainly for domestic sale within Japan, about 15% of the production was exported to other countries.

Singer machines produced at the Utsunomiya factory were identified by a suffix U added to their model numbers. Their serial numbers took the form of TA, TB, TC etc. Followed by 6 digit numbers which were allocated sequentially. NOTE - A Pine Sewing Machine Company had originally been established in 1921 by Yosaku Ose and Shigeru Kamematsu.

They quickly began using the trade-name of Janome which was registered by them in 1935. In 1954 Pines founding partners split, and the exiting partner took the name Pine to form his own company, while the remaining partner changed the name of the existing business to Janome Sewing Machine Company..
