- Comments Off on Toshiba Printers: Manufacturer Profile
They’re known around the world for TVs, computers, memory chips, video recorders, washers/dryers, light bulbs, and even Toshiba printers! You could say they know a thing or two about technology, which is part of the reason we’re proud to carry Toshiba printers, scanners, copiers, and faxes at Steelhead.
Toshiba’s long history of innovation
In 1875 Tanaka Engineering Works supplied telegraphy equipment from Japan. They quickly gained a reputation as a technology innovator and in 1939 they merged with the Tokyo Energy Company to form Toshiba Corporation. Today, Toshiba is one of the 500 largest companies in the world.
You’ll be hard pressed to find anyone who hasn’t heard of Toshiba today (except maybe the Sentinelese who’ve had no human contact from the world outside their small Bay of Bengal island). Toshiba has clearly played such an important role in our lives.
They started their innovation timeline with Japan’s first induction motor in 1895. This was followed by the world’s first “double-coil” light bulb (1921), Japan’s first electric washing machine and fridge (1930), the DVD and DVD-ROM Drives (1996), the world’s first commercialised HDD & DVD video recorder (2001), the world’s first networked appliances (2002), and the world’s first 3D LCD TV that didn’t require 3D glasses.
When it comes to their lines of office printers, Toshiba printers have been our number one line since 1982 because they have the broadest range of products and a proven history of reliability for your office. They strive to make technology that benefits people everywhere, just as they did pack in 1875.
