TUSA is one of the world's first scuba equipment manufacturers, founded by Kazuo Tabata in Tokyo, Japan in 1952. From the first handmade mask and goggles built in Mr. Tabata's garage, Tabata products have always been constructed from the finest materials with an unparalleled commitment to quality and innovation.
TUSA was the premier manufacturer to introduce crystal (premium) silicone mask skirts with the original Liberator model and introduced the first range of vibrant colors to diving equipment.
The continued innovation is evident today throughout the entire Tabata line that includes VIEW Swimming Gear, TUSA Sport Snorkeling Equipment, Vitalshot Golf Equipment and other recreational sporting goods.
For over 66 years, TUSA has shaped the future of diving and our dedicated team will continue to improve the scuba and watersports experience for future generations.
Design, Manufacturing, Quality Control
TUSA dive equipment is designed and manufactured to ISO 9001 standards.
At Tabata our goal has always been to provide our users with innovative equipment of the highest quality. To ensure quality, Tabata has been certified by the International Standards Organization to their ISO 9001 standards for Tabata Japan and Tabata Taiwan. The ISO certification provides independent assurance of our commitment to developing and manufacturing innovative equipment to the highest international quality standards.
Our regulators are a good example of how we develop and test our equipment before it is received by the diver. We subject all regulators to rigorous testing using an ANSTI machine before shipping. We test inhalation and exhalation resistance, work of breathing, and intermediate pressure settings on all regulators. This is our way of assuring our customers that they can rely on TUSA regulators for many years of enjoyable use. This quality control applies not only to regulators, but every Tabata product.
