Mention Sharp and flashes of TV sets, radios, calculators, fridges and PDAs will come to mind. The Japanese electronics giant has a rich history in the consumers electronics segment all around the world. I distinctly remember Sharp scientific calculators, TV sets and the Sharp Zaurus PDA.
Time does fly and in September this year, Sharp celebrates its 100th anniversary – quite a milestone, considering its humble beginnings in a metal workshop in Tokyo back in 1912. Founder Tokuji Hayakawa invented many things, but the highlight was the Ever-Sharp mechanical pencil in which Sharp Corporation derived its name from. The rest as they say is history.
One hundred years is a long time. And in more ways than one, through its diverse portfolio of products and services, Sharp has touched the lives of many and for many generations connected with people of all walks of life.
To celebrate 100 years of memories, Sharp is running a “Anniversary Share” campaign. This is to thank its customers for the undying 100 years of support they have given the brand. Sharp sets its sights for the next 100 years of more innovative products and services.
