Sony

The origins of many world famous companies were two people, one of whom was a talented engineer, the other was well versed in the business world. Sony was no exception.

It happened in 1946, in Japan, which had just begun to revive after the defeat and upheavals of World War II. In the partially destroyed Nihonbashi shopping center, which miraculously survived the bombing of Tokyo, a young engineer Masaru Ibuka opened a workshop for the repair of various electrical equipment and electronics. After some time, he and his old friend Akio Morita (Akio Morita) founded the office in the same room for a new company, which received the loud name Tokyo Telecommunications Research Institute, which is sometimes reduced to Totsuko.
