Family tradition - leadership with consistency

Yazaki’s timeline of success dates back to 1929 when Sadami Yazaki began selling electric wires for automobiles. After important changes in governmental regulations in 1935, Japanese companies were allowed to start domestic automotive production – with positive effects for Yazaki: In 1939 the company extended its business and in 1941 Yazaki Electric Wire Industrial Co. Ltd. was established with about 70 employees. At this time, automotive engineering was a promising branch of industry and so in 1949 when Sadami Yazaki made an important strategic decision: to focus on the production of automotive wiring harnesses. This was a groundbreaking decision which resulted in today’s global leadership.
