Japanese corporation, a major manufacturer of computer equipment, electronics and climate technology.
The history of this powerful holding with a very complex structure began back in 1935, on June 20th. That's when the company was founded. Fuji Telecommunications Equipment Manufacturing - branch of the company Fuji Electric Limited (founded in 1923 as a joint venture of the German Siemens AG and Japanese Furukawa Electric Company). At first Fuji Telecommunications Equipment Manufacturing (in the Japanese manner, its name looked like Fuji Tsuushinki Seizou Kabushikigaisha) was engaged, as its name implies, in equipment for telephony.
It was this company that was the first in Japan to produce solutions that were easy to use in homes and offices. After the end of the Second World War, it is she who is engaged in the restoration of the entire destroyed telecommunications infrastructure of the country, which allows her to receive all subsidies and guarantees from the Japanese Ministry of Telecommunications and firmly stand on her feet.
The Fujitsu brand was finally formed in 1967. Word "Fujitsu" arose as a merger of the first two words from the Japanese company name (Fuji Tsuushinki), which is now called Fujitsu Kabushiki Kaisha. As in the case of another Japanese company - Fuji Photo Film Corporation, title Fujitsu originated in honor of Mount Fuji. Just added to it "tsuu", which can be translated as "achieve".
The company introduced its first computer in October 1954 - the FACOM 100 model. Since 1978, Fujitsu actively cooperates with Siemens AG in the field of computer systems. In the future (in 1980), it will become the largest computer manufacturer in Japan. In 1981, the company's first personal computer appears. At the same time, no one thought to forget about telecommunications - this direction is also actively developing. Moreover, the equipment Fujitsu already used not only in Japan.
To list all the achievements and developments of Fujitsu, you will need more than one article, or even a book. They concern not only computer technology, but also telecommunications and consumer electronics, microelectronics and components. The areas of activity of the holding concern such areas as consulting - Fujitsu Consulting. Subsidiary NIFTY Corporation is the largest Japanese Internet service provider.
Fujitsu was the first IT company to offer a new model of relationship with the client, when a set of additional services related to equipment maintenance is provided for an additional fee. It happened in 1992 when the project started PROPOSE (PROfessional Total Support Service). Produces household and air conditioning equipment Fujitsu General Ltd.
A very famous joint venture was the company Fujitsu-Siemens Computers (FSC), main October 1, 1999. Field of activity - computer systems, from desktop to mobile. Lasted until October 22, 2008, when Siemens, following his globalization projects, sold his share Fujitsu. Since then FSC called Fujitsu Technology Solutions and is one of the components of a global company Fujitsu Group. The field of activity has remained the same.
