SHARP 100 Years #Sharp100

As long as I can remember, SHARP has always been around since I was born, in fact, it has been around since my mother was born. Truth, SHARP has been around longer than that. It has been around since September 15, 1912 when the founder, Tokuji Hayakawa, first established metalworking shop in Tokyo, Japan.

Do you know what was the first product produced by SHARP? TV? Oven? Calculator? Hmm…you guessed wrong! Hehe! It was a Tokubijo belt buckle!

Here are first three products produced by SHARP.

Along the way, SHARP has produced numerous of great products including the latest Freestyle AQUOS and Interactive Whiteboard in 2011.
