Learn about Sharp

Corporate Edge

Ever since its founding, Sharp has come out with numerous products that were the first of their kind in Japan and overseas, under company founder Tokuji Hayakawa's policy to "make products that others want to imitate." Japan's first domestically produced radio and TV, the world's first electronic calculator and practical LCD are just a few examples of Sharp products that have contributed to enhancement of the standard of living and development of society. This spirit of creating new products never seen before in the world is the driving force behind Sharp's growth and has been passed down over generations as the "DNA of creativity." This "DNA of creativity" supports our fundametal policy of aiming to become "one-of-a-kind" rather than "number one in scale."
