Following the award of a patent for the 'Tokubijo' snap buckle and the beginning of a metalwork shop in Tokyo in 1912, Tokuji Hayakawa, had started a small business. Three years later, following research and manufacturing developments Mr Hayakawa developed the 'Ever-Sharp Pencil' that was embraced by the global markets. The company name as known today, Sharp, orignated from this product.
The dream of Mr Hayakawa has always been to "make products that other companies want to imitate". Over the years Sharp has grown and continually strives to make technologically advanced one-of-a-kind products.
In 1953 Sharp launced the first Japanese made TV Sets. The 60's saw the production of home-use microwaves, desktop calculators, and colour TVs. The 70s cemented Sharp's presence with the introduction of pocket calculators and mass production of colour TVs in Australia. The 70s and 80s saw huge global growth for Sharp with subsidiaries across the globe and the development of LCD TVs. Sharp continues to expand and improve its range of products to keep abreast of consumer needs.
In light of all of Sharp's work over the years it is no surprise that Sharp has been designing products to meet the needs of Australians and other global consumers for many years. In 1992 Sharp celebrated 80 years of operation and continues to be a global leader in techonology, especially LCD and solar technology.
