Takebishi Corporation was originally established in 1926 as Kusasa Shougyou Co., Ltd. in the city of Osaka. Due to the close relationship with Mitsubishi Corporation it was decided to change the name of the company to Takebishi in 1930. In 1963 the head office was moved to Kyoto where it remains until today. Takebishi Corporation now has many offices around Japan and is also active abroad since 1996 when it established Takebishi Electric Sales Hong Kong as a subsidiary. In 2006 Takebishi Electric Sales Shanghai was established and two years later this subsidiary opened a branch office in Tianjin. In 2014 Takebishi Corporation expanded even further and established Takebishi (Thailand) Co., Ltd. in Bangkok, Thailand and Takebishi Europe B.V. in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
