The company was established on Showa 25 (Oct. 1, 1950).
The head office was originally established in Fushimi-ku, Kyoto, but relocated to the current head office's address in Showa 42 (July 1967) due to business scope expansion.
Since its establishment, the main business items have been wires and cables. Since Showa 40s (mid 1965), it started to set up business offices in various regions and expanted its business scope to electronics industry. In early Showa 50s (early 1970s), the company successfully set a strong foothold in electronic parts, materials and machinery. In the same period, it began to build processing factories.
Now, the company operates a commercial business model in Japan with strong techinical capabilities by conducting business activities based on the business policy of “placing top priority to satisfy various customer needs.”
