TOSHIBA THE ROOTS OF THE FUTURE
Toshiba is one of companies who have a very long history in Japan and we are proud of this. Toshiba’s roots go back to a small shop and factory in Ginza’s “brick town”, founded in 1875, and Hakunetsu-sha & Co., Ltd., founded in 1890.
Hisashige Tanaka, nicknamed “the genius of mechanical wonders”, was one of Japan’s greatest inventors. Ichisuke Fujioka, “a wizard with electricity”, was known as the Japanese Edison.
The businesses launched by these two giants later came together to form the Toshiba of today. Their restless curiosity and passion still live on in Toshiba’s heart and soul.
Tanaka’s great dream was to develop technologies that would truly benefit people everywhere. A philosophy that is reflected by the slogan of the corporation: “Committed to People – Committed to the Future”.
Not simply a show of innovation and research for its own sake, but real and genuine support to benefit everyone. Today, 130 years after the first beginnings in 1875, we can confidently confirm that his dream has become reality.
In fact, Toshiba, world leader in high technology not only develops new technologies, but also provides products to enhance health, comfort and networking.
