Joshua Roth Limited was founded in 1980 by Joshua Roth. As a fine woodworker he fell in love with the high quality of Japanese woodworking tools. These tools were virtually unknown and unavailable except to a select few in the States. Those that had access to these high quality tools coveted each tool they owned. Not wanting to compete with his close friends in the woodworking industry, Joshua felt that high quality Japanese-made gardening tools would be welcomed in the US. After much research, he decided to sell only tools from Japan - the country renowned for its originality and pride in gardening and horticulture. Joshua was dedicated to providing not only the best quality tools but also quality customer services. This remains the focus of Joshua Roth Limited today.

COMPANY SLOGAN OR MOTTO:
Tools to shape the dream
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED:
HOW DID YOU GET STARTED IN YOUR LINE OF WORK:
After selling my hardware business, I wanted a business that would allow me to use my business skills as well as allow us to concentrate on customer service. Working with the bonsai community as a wholesale provider of high quality bonsai tools has not only allowed me to do this, but it has also been exciting to work with so many people dedicated to this art form.
WHAT’S HAPPENING WITH YOUR BUSINESS CURRENTLY THAT EXCITES YOU:
We are seeing many new and younger enthusiasts. It is so great to see these up and coming artists.
WHAT DO YOU WANT THE WORLD TO KNOW ABOUT YOUR WORK:
We want them to know that customer service really is our number one priority. We care about our customers and we want them to have the best experience they can have when dealing with our company. We also want them to know we stand by our products and want to deliver quality tools that they can use in the development and care of their art.
WHY SHOULD PEOPLE CARE ABOUT AMERICAN BONSAI:
Japanese bonsai will always be the standard by which all others are judged but there is no reason that American bonsai artists cannot thrive and continue to grow the art form here in the United States.
WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO SPONSOR THE ARTISANS CUP:
The American bonsai art form continues to grow and mature and we are delighted to have the opportunity to have some small part in its continued development. We want the bonsai community to know we believe in them and want to be a part of what is to come.
