Sharp Philippines Celebrates its 40th Anniversary

Mr. Kazuo Kito- President with their Sharp Employees

There is a saying that great things come in small packages. At least for this company, that was how their story began 110 years ago – with a belt buckle and a mechanical pencil.

In 1912, a company founded by Tokuji Hayakawa in Honjo, Tokyo, Japan, came up with the Tokubijo Snap Buckle – a belt buckle that can be adjusted in length without the need for fastening holes. Three years later in 1915, he invented the first ever Hayakawa Mechanical Pencil – which became simply known as the Ever SHARP Pencil.

Who would have thought that a brand with a well-established name in the Electronics and Appliances Industry actually started out with items that were unrelated to its field? Staying true to its core values of Sincerity and Creativity, Sharp continuously strives to introduce innovative products with the latest technologies that would bring comfort and convenience to the daily lives of its customers.

Sharp Philippines Corporation first set foot in the country in January 1, 1982, bringing the Black & White Television to the production line followed by Colored TV which brought joy to every corner of the country.  In 1984, they started the production of Cassette Tape Recorder. Seeing the growing need and demand of other home appliances, the company subsequently introduced different types of Washing Machines that helped lighten all mothers’ cleaning perfections. To level up household entertainment, Sharp also produced Karaoke that showcased more the love of Filipinos for singing. In the most recent year, they even manufactured electric fans.

Indeed, Sharp truly cares for the Filipinos. This Japanese company listens to the feedback of its consumers and adapt Japan quality product to its local products through their Research and Development in compliance with the Philippine safety standards. As a way of giving back for the continued support of the Filipino people, Sharp commits to continuously develop and produce locally fit products for Filipinos, thus, generating more jobs contributing to the country’s economic progress.

Sharp’s innovative products that are currently in the market such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioner, audio products, home kitchen appliances, and Plasmacluster Ion Air purifiers Products and those that are for further development prioritizes the health and well-being of people and its environment. One of which is its Plasmacluster Ion (PCI), a one-of-a-kind technology of Sharp that deactivates airborne viruses, bacteria, moulds and odours by up to 99.9%.

Moreover, the company will be organizing a Service Caravan to cater to service needs in the provinces with its goal to reach more Filipinos especially in the rural areas. The caravan will provide 40% discount to its customers on parts and services.
