Sanyo

Answer: Sanyo

Sanyo Electric Co., founded in 1949, is one of the largest Japanese electronics companies with a total asset base of nearly a trillion dollars and a continent-spanning distribution network that delivers consumer electronics, batteries, and cell phones all over the world.

Worldwide delivery is precisely what the company set out to do from the very start. Sanyo founder Toshio Iue named the company such because “Sanyo” translates as “three oceans” and he desired to expand his company to the point that their products shipped across the Atlantic, Pacific, and Indian oceans.

By the 1970s, Sanyo had penetrated the North American market, primarily via car stereos and home electronics sales, and realized Iue’s vision of a globe-spanning electronics empire.
