1943 - Inizia la Nostra storia 

Sanden’s founder, Kaihei Ushikubo, who had been running a textile mill, started manufacturing components of communication devices and mica-condensers in July 1943, when Japan was fighting in World War II and the private sector manufacturing plants were enforced either to shift themselves to ammunition producing plants or close their business.
This is how the predecessor company of Sanden, called Sankyo Electric Company, was created with a capital of Yen. 198,000.
