St. Paul, MN (May 6, 2019) —Matsuura USA commemorates National Small Business Week, May 5-11, and honors the innovators who take a risk on an idea, invest in their communities and create jobs.

Matsuura’s Spirit of Innovation and Technological Excellence began in 1935, when the late Toshio Matsuura founded Matsuura Machinery. What began as a small business in his garage, is now Matsuura Machinery Corporation, a world class provider of automated, unmanned machining, 5-axis palletized manufacturing solutions and metal laser sintering/hybrid metal innovation.

Matsuura’s theme of IMAGINE.CREATE.INNOVATE. is based on Matsuura Corporation President, Mr. Katsutoshi Matsuura’s description of the company:

“My Grandfather Imagined what Matsuura could become.
My Father Created it. And I have Innovated it.” 

President Donald Trump in his proclamation declaring May 5 – 11, 2019, as National Small Business Week stated, “America’s 30 million small businesses are central to our economy and our communities.  Their courageous innovation makes our cities and towns vibrant places to live, work, and raise families.  Small businesses employ almost 59 million workers, more than one-third of our country’s labor force.”

He added, “This week, we celebrate the pioneering spirit, creativity, and determination upon which America has always been built.  This undaunted conviction drives our entrepreneurs and small business owners, whose hard work and perseverance give our Nation economic strength.  Their initiative, combined with the greatest workforce in the world, is enabling us to convert the unlimited potential of America into great wealth and prosperity.”

The U.S. Small Business Administration makes the American dream of business ownership a reality. As the only go-to resource and voice for small businesses backed by the strength of the federal government, the SBA empowers entrepreneurs and small business owners with the resources and support they need to start, grow or expand their businesses, or recover from a declared disaster. It delivers services through an extensive network of SBA field offices and partnerships with public and private organizations. To learn more, visit
