The company is headquartered in Tokyo, Japan with branch offices and manufacturing in the United States. Uesaka remains a family run business with three generations of master craftsmen, designers and machinists. Uesaka Barbell Company has been the official supplier of weightlifting equipment for six Olympic Games from 1964-2004, as well as for the 2009 World Weightlifting Championships and the 2010 Commonwealth Games. They have earned the coveted Category A certification from the International Weightlifting Federation.
Uesaka competition and training bars have been used at the US Olympic Training Center since 1996 with no bar failures and no maintenance. Many purchasers are tempted to buy the least expensive equipment they can find; however, after purchasing several replacement bars, they could have saved money by purchasing quality Olympic weightlifting equipment from the start.
