The Kioritz Corporation was a global manufacturer of forestry and agricultural machinery, as well as outdoor power equipment. The company was founded on 8 September 1947, by the Asamoto brothers, primarily to manufacture agricultural machinery. Until 1971, the company operated under the name, Kyoritsu Noki Company. In 1971, the Kyoritsu Noki Company changed its name to the Kioritz Corporation and launched the CS-302, its first 'professional' saw and the first to bear its distinctive orange casing. It began trading under the ECHO brand name in 1978.

Until the 1960s, the company concentrated on the manufacture of power dusters, mist blowers and other pest control machinery. The first Kyoritsu Noki brushcutter was introduced in 1960 and three years later, the company launched its first chainsaw, the ECHO CS-80, and the first Kyoritsu Noki tool to bear the "ECHO" brand name. In 1970, Kyoritsu claimed to have 'revolutionized' outdoor cleaning with the PB-9, a backpack power blower. The ECHO brand of hand-held petrol powered tools including chainsaws, brushcutters, hedge trimmers and leaf blowers are manufactured in Yokosuka and Morioka, with other major plants in Shenzhen, China and Lake Zurich, Illinois.

On 1 September 2008, Kioritz and Shindaiwa merged under one holding company, the Yamabiko Corporation. Briggs and Stratton are the distributors for Yamabiko product Australia wide
