History[edit]

Former Hitachi
Hitachi
logo (1968–1992)

Hitachi
Hitachi
was founded in 1910 by electrical engineer Namihei Odaira
Namihei Odaira
in Ibaraki Prefecture.[5] The company's first product was Japan's first 5-horsepower induction motor, initially developed for use in copper mining. Odaira's company soon became the domestic leader in electric motors and electric power industry infrastructure.[6] The company began as an in-house venture of Fusanosuke Kuhara's mining company in Hitachi, Ibaraki. Odaira moved headquarters to Tokyo
Tokyo
in 1918. Long before that, he coined the company’s toponymic name by superimposing two kanji characters: hi meaning “sun” and tachi meaning “rise”. The young company's national aspirations were conveyed by its original brand mark, which evoked Japan's imperial rising sun flag. World War II and its aftermath devastated the company. Many of its factories were destroyed by Allied bombing raids, and after the war, American occupational forces tried to disband Hitachi
Hitachi
altogether. Founder Odaira was removed from the company. Nevertheless, as a result of three years of negotiations, Hitachi
Hitachi
was permitted to maintain all but 19 of its manufacturing plants. The cost of such a production shutdown, though, compounded by a three-month labor strike in 1950, severely hindered Hitachi's reconstruction efforts. Only the Korean War saved the company from complete collapse. Hitachi
Hitachi
and many other struggling Japanese industrial firms benefited from defense contracts offered by the American military. Meanwhile, Hitachi
Hitachi
went public in 1949.[1] Hitachi
Hitachi
America, Ltd. was established in 1959.[7] Hitachi
Hitachi
Europe, Ltd. was established in 1982.[8] In March 2011, Hitachi
Hitachi
agreed to sell its hard disk drive subsidiary, HGST, to Western Digital
Western Digital
(WD) for a combination of cash and shares worth US$4.3 billion.[9] Due to concerns of a duopoly of WD and Seagate Technology
Seagate Technology
by the EU Commission and the Federal Trade Commission, Hitachi's 3.5" HDD division was sold to Toshiba. The transaction was completed in March 2012.[10] Hitachi
Hitachi
entered talks with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
in August 2011 about a potential merger of the two companies, in what would have been the largest merger between two Japanese companies in history.[11][12] The talks subsequently broke down and were suspended.[13] In October 2012, Hitachi
Hitachi
agreed to acquire the United Kingdom-based nuclear energy company Horizon Nuclear Power, which plans to construct up to six nuclear power plants in the UK, from E.ON
E.ON
and RWE
RWE
for £700 million.[14][15] In November 2012, Hitachi
Hitachi
and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
agreed to merge their thermal power generation businesses into a joint venture to be owned 65% by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
and 35% by Hitachi.[16][17] The joint venture began operations in February 2014.[18] On March 14, 2018, Zoomdata announced its partnership with Hitachi
Hitachi
INS Software
Software
to help develop big data analytics market in Japan. [19] Presidents[edit]
