North America

Takagi USA was established in 1995 and sold Takagi brand gas water heaters in the United States and Canada.
In 2010, we formed a joint venture with A.O. Smith Corporation, the largest water heater company in North America to manufacture and market tankless water heaters in North America, strengthening our position with a world class, full high efficiency product offering in the tankless market.


PURPOSE first exported its products to Australia in 1996. Since then, we have steadily increased the number of water heaters shipped to Australia. We have a distributor in Australia who exclusively trades Takagi brand water heaters.


PURPOSE shipped its first products to Italy in 2014. Our goal is to supply water heaters and combi-boilers to all over Europe.


PURPOSE launched outdoor gas water heaters in China in 2015. We have then expanded our product portfolio to include two indoor water heater models. The brand marketed in China is the same as Japan, PURPOSE.
