Toshiba history

Toshiba was founded in 1939 as Tokyo Shibaura Denki K.K. through the merger of Shibaura Seisaku-sho (founded in 1875) and Tokyo Denki (founded in 1890). The company name was officially changed to Toshiba Corporation in 1978.

Toshiba is organized into the following principal business groupings:

  • Digital Products Group
  • Electronic Devices Group
  • Social Infrastructure Group
  • Home Appliances Group
  • Others

The air conditioning division is part of the home appliances group and in 1999 formed a joint venture with Carrier to become Toshiba Carrier Corporation (TCC).

In 2022, Carrier Global Corporation completed its acquisition of substantially all of Toshiba Corporation's ownership stake in TCC.

From the beginning, we’ve led in inventing new technologies and entirely new industries.
