Mitsubishi? Mitsubishi Electric? Mitsubishi Heavy Industries?

The Mitsubishi company started out as a shipping firm founded by Yataro Iwasaki in 1870. The company grew strongly thru out the years. The Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co. was formed in 1917. Then in 1921, Mitsubishi Electric Corporation was formed after it spun off from Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co.

But after the world war 2, Japan's big industrial groups including Mitsubishi was forced to disband by the allied troops thus Mitsubishi was disbanded on September 30, 1946 and they were split into many other smaller companies. Most of the Mitsubishi companies abandoned the name and emblem under pressure from the occupation forces.

As time goes by many of these related compaines began using the name and emblem again. Though they no longer belong to Mitsubishi, they still shared the same roots and history. Each of them operate their business independent but they still remain in a close community.

At present, Mitsubishi is a community formed by independent companies who onced shared the same origin. Many of theses companies, but not all, have 'Mitsubishi' in their names and uses the three diamond 'Mitsubishi Mark'.

And lastly!!! Seen the logo of Mitsubishi? Know what it means?


"Mitsubishi" is made up of mitsu and hishi. Mitsu means three. Hishi means water chestnut. The founder, Yataro Iwasaki, chose the three-diamond mark to represent the three-leaf crest of the Tosa Clan, Yataro's first employer, and also of the three stacked rhombuses of the Iwasaki family crest.
