The history of the company has more than a hundred years. It all started in an era when phones were still exotic. It was then, in 1881, that the Japanese engineer Kibataro Oki founded the company. Meikosha Ltd.engaged in the production of telephones (they were called Microsound or "Edison-type telephone"). Oki not only launched the serial production of existing developments, but also actively engaged in their improvement. In the future, the designs he created will be actively used by Russian soldiers on the fields of the First World War. It was Oki who first applied the now-familiar scheme, thanks to which the user hears short beeps when the number he calls is busy.
In 1889 the company changed its name to Oki Electric Works. And then, in 1907, after the death of the founder (Oki, who lived for 56 years, died in 1906), on Oki & Co., Ltd. In those years, the head office of the company repeatedly changed its location. The range of manufactured products is expanding, divisions are beginning to appear.
Neither the First, nor the Second World Wars, nor regional conflicts could prevent the development of the company. Over the years of its existence, it has created many unique developments, such as an automatic teletypewriter, an LED printer, a fax machine using thermal paper... printing is used everywhere - in ATMs, cash registers, terminals and similar devices. Matrix printers are actively used in banking and accounting.
To date, Oki Electric Industry Co., Ltd. - a corporation with a complex structure and representative offices in many countries (the European division is called Oki Europe Limited). The head office is located in Tokyo, Japan (Tokio, Japan). Oki products are well respected everywhere. After all, it’s not without reason that popular computer wisdom says - "He who has Oki, let him see!".
