A history steeped in innovation

It all started in a copper mine, just under 100 miles northeast of Tokyo. It was 1906. The Kuhara Mining Company.  Namihei Odaira joined as a section electrical lead a few years after graduating from Tokyo Imperial University. Ask anyone. Namihei Odaira wasn’t  just a kid with just an electrical engineering degree.  Odaira was a path-maker. For it was in his spare time in 1910 – while still working at the mine – that he and another colleague developed Japan’s first-ever 5-horsepower electric motor.

It was this entrepreneurial thinking that led Odaira to formally separate from the Kuhara Mining Company and found what is now known as Hitachi, Ltd.

Today, all companies bearing the Hitachi name are mobilized based on what Odaira knew to be true over 100 years ago – “Companies are their people”. Hitachi Solutions continues to build upon these same ideals, leveraging the experience and insight of over 850 Hitachi companies across the globe.
And wow – does our collective tool kit has serious clout! Financial strength. Global presence. A root system of know-how, experience and challenges overcome by others from which to gather insight.
