Mitsubishi Logo – Mitsubishi is one of the largest companies in Japan. It was founded on May 13, 1870 by Yataro Iwasaki, son of a family samurai. Played an important role in transforming Japan into an industrialized society. At first was devoted to maritime transport. The brand and the name of Mitsubishi, refer to ‘three diamonds’. Its name is derived from the words ‘mitsu’ meaning three and ‘hishi’, meaning triangular water chestnuts. Currently, a consortium of companies is decentralized.
In 1873 the company is named as Mitsubishi Shokai. Under the impetus of its founder became one of the most powerful consortia in Japan. Group companies have a myriad of subsidiaries and contracts that do not bear the name Mitsubishi. For example, the Japanese operator of telecommunications satellites, the Space Communications Corporation is owned by thirty Mitsubishi group companies but does not carry his name.
At the end of World War II, Japan was occupied by the United States. The General MacArthur governing the country. The U.S. wants to eliminate the consortia, to consider the main instigators of the war, including Mitsubishi (who had produced enough military equipment for the Japanese army, including the famous hunting Zero pilots bomber). On September 30th of 1946 U.S. administrators decreed the dissolution of the group, with the explicit prohibition of reunification. Other groups, such as Sumitomo, followed the same fate. It also prevents the existence of financial ties between companies that had belonged to the group, and even its logo is prohibited, although gradually reappear.
Since then, officially the only link between the various group companies is an old house in which the presidents meet regularly to distribute grants (authorized) to political parties and decide which branches are allowed or not to be named and the Mitsubishi logo. However, very slowly, here and there approaches or rearrangements occur between the former group companies. Mitsubishi Group companies are regarded as traditional businesses, producing goods and services of high quality. Usually pay close attention to your brand and many of them working for various administrations.
