World of Hitachi
Did you know that Hitachi, Ltd. is one of the world’s largest corporations, with over 20,000 products and 320,000 employees worldwide? Our parent company has come a long way since its humble beginnings as an electrical repair shop, founded in 1910 by Namihei Odaira.
Today, the Hitachi name (Japanese for ‘sunrise’) lends itself to a diverse range of products and services. These include: IT and telecommunication; infrastructure systems (rail and buildings); industrial systems; construction; electronic devices and equipment; medical, scientific and laboratory equipment; high functional materials and components; automotive systems; financial and business services; and home electronics.
All of these products and services share a single aim – to contribute to people and society through the development of superior original technology and products.
