Toshiba - History

It all began in 1875 when Tanaka Engineering Works became a major supplier of telegraphy equipment used in long-distance communications and quickly earned the reputation for innovation in developing technologies. Then in 1939, Tanaka Engineering Works merged with Tokyo Electric Company to form Toshiba Corporation, which would later become a leader and pioneer of some of the world’s most significant technologies, and the brains and brawn behind more than 500 major technologies including telegraph equipment, MRI technology, air traffic control systems, semiconductors, flat panel displays, disk drives, business telephone systems, laptop computers and digital imaging and document management solutions. When the history of technology is written, it is our intention to be included in every chapter.
