Hitachi was founded in 1910 by electrical engineer Namihei Odaira in Ibaraki Prefecture. The company’s first product was Japan’s first 5-horsepower electric 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.

The company began as an in-house venture of Fusanosuke Kuhara’s mining company in Hitachi, Ibaraki. Odaira moved headquarters to 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.

Hitachi America, Ltd. was established in 1959. Hitachi Europe, Ltd. was established in 1982.
