Where did the name Suweeka come from?

Suika is Japanese for watermelon.

Suica, is a prepaid money card for using the Japanese rail system and for shopping. Suica stands for “Super Urban Intelligent Card”

After visiting Japan in 2010 & 2014, our Co Founder Kirk found himself saying the word and having a smile on his face as well as fond memories of his travels. What started out as a placeholder name for the emerging rack company, soon became the name of choice.

We hope that you enjoy saying Suica/Suika, Suweeka and that you envision a design led cargo carrying system, delicious watermelons, and travelling Japan via the super efficient, on schedule robust rail system that is a hallmark of Japan.
