The history of MITSUBISHI
In 1870, MITSUBISHI Heavy Industries Ltd. was founded by Iwasaki Yataro as a shipping company. They had three steam boats in their fleet, which were available for rent. It was only three years later that MITSUBISHI was used as the company name. His younger brother took over the company after Iwasaki Yataro's death. He founded a line service for the shipping, which was active worldwide. He simultaneously engaged himself in baking and mining. Over the following decade, this family-run company founded another company in the area of banking, property and sales. Furthermore, MITSUBISHI Heavy Industries also produced fighter jets. Until 1945, there were 200 companies within the corporation. After the second world war, the group was administered by the American occupation authorities, who transformed the whole group into a single company. All the companies are independent, but still use the MITSUBISHI Heavy Industries Ltd logo up until today. In 1992, the MITSUBISHI Caterpillar Forklift was founded, which worked with manufacturers of forklifts. This was a new way into the worldwide market.
