110 years of global innovation
On the 15th September 2022 Sharp celebrates another impressive milestone - 110 years of global innovation and transformation.
The story began in 1912 when its founder Tokuji Hayakawa established a metalworking shop in Tokyo and later invented the “Ever Ready Sharp Pencil,” a twist-type mechanical pencil that would become the origin of the corporate brand.
110 years later Sharp is now an expert in both business to business and consumer innovation and continues its commitment to developing unique products and technological solutions.
Sharp Electronics is one of the world's leading technology manufacturers. The Sharp company motto of ‘Be Original’ represents our promise to create technology-based solutions that are rich in originality and uniquely Sharp. We are continuously developing innovative products and services that help businesses operate more effectively and that make people’s lives more convenient and fulfilling.
