IRISO is the leading company in the development of connectors in the automobile market, beginning with CarAV and Car electronics. For more than fifty years since 1966, we have continued to devote ourselves faithfully to developing the field of electronics. In recent years, we expanded the range of our product development, applying the technology we had fostered to the industrial market, including machine tools, industrial tools, Smart Grid, telecommunication equipment and medical equipment, etc. We have also greatly expanded into the market of consumer equipment, including information and communication, OA and video equipment, etc.
We have been focusing our attention on the development of products that are easy to use, as well as easy to operate, not to mention offering products that are highly reliable. We have been developing all kinds of products, responding to the needs of the customers, as in the development of products which are additions to the ESD mechanism.
In May, 2007, on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of our founding, we completed the building of the IRISO Technology Park in Shin-Yokohama, as the "core base" for the research and development of new products and new technology that focused on future growth. This park comes with a laboratory and a showroom with cutting-edge equipment, in addition to our products. We have also been aggressively bringing about the globalization of our production base, as seen in the newly established factory in Vietnam, the third one abroad, following those in Shanghai and the Phillipines. In close cooperation with production, marketing, technology and management, we will continue to offer solutions related to "connections".
IRISO Electronics Co., Ltd. was established on December 16, 1966 in Shimo-Numabe, Kawasaki City. Our very first customer was a company located in the village of Iriso (presently Sayama City) in Iruma-gun, Saitama Prefecture. We therefore decided to name our company after that village so we would never forget how much we owed to the customer, as well as the thrill of receiving that order. Assembly work subsequently began at a makeshift “factory” inside an apartment room, with less than ten employees. Seven years later, in April 1973, we developed our first proprietary product a pin. Based on the technology for that pin’s development, we paved the way to becoming the general connector manufacturer we are today. At present, we have expanded our operations to 12 regions throughout the world. Aiming to become a truly global company, we continue to expand our business while making customer satisfaction our first priority at all times, setting up bases that tackle everything from R&D and manufacturing to distribution.
Iriso’s connectors enjoy high acclaim in the interior vehicle device market. Thanks to their reliability, the demand for Iriso connectors is growing in digital equipment, FA/OA devices, and other markets as well. Meanwhile, other markets are evolving ever-faster, becoming a gathering place for innovative technologies of the electronics industry. Iriso’s technologies cultivated in this market are essential for growth, and they become the engine for bringing about new ideas and inspirations. Applying those technologies across the board in both markets enables us to carry out highly specialized and reliable business. We believe that this growth strategy allows us to move forward with our customers.
