Toshiba, part of the Toshiba Corporation, is a diversified manufacturer and marketer of advanced electronic and electrical products, including Home Entertainment systems. The company is reported to be the world's 9th largest integrated manufacturer of electric and electronic equipment, with some 161,000 employees world-wide and consolidated annual sales of over US$53 billion. In 1799, Hisashige Tanaka was born, the child of a tortoise-shell craftsman. From an early age he enjoyed making trick toys, starting with a clever pencil case that no one could open, however hard they tried.
Hisashige worked hard. He studied maths and astronomy and used his unique imagination to invent many things: A light burning ten times brighter than a candle, a wind-up clock keeping perfect time for over 200 days.
In 1875, he established a company "Tanaka Engineering Works" which is now known as "Toshiba". Today, individuals around the world are living Hisashige's dream, using their imaginations to turn inspirational ideas into products and systems that enhance the world we live in.
