Origins of a Multinational Company

The story of Mitsubishi began in 1870, when Yataro Iwasaki founded a shipping company in Osaka with three leased steamships. In the years that followed Mitsubishi expanded to become a multinational company through acquisitions and the establishment of new enterprises in other sectors, including mining, shipbuilding, banking, commerce and property. In 1921, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation was formed by spinning off the division for the production of electrical equipment for ships. Today Mitsubishi Electric has factories, R&D centers and sales organizations in over 120 countries worldwide.

The three diamonds logo is famous as the trademark of Mitsubishi Electric and over forty other international companies active in finance, commerce and industry. The logo has a direct relationship to the company name. Mitsubishi actually means "three diamonds" - it is a combination of the words Mitsu (three) and Bishi (stone or diamond). Just like the name Mitsubishi, products and services bearing the three diamond logo stand for state-of-the-art technology and first-class quality all over the world.
