FOR-A celebrates 45th anniversary
WORLD: Japanese broadcast and pro visual manufacturer FOR-A is celebrating 45 years in business. Founded in Tokyo in 1971 by current group owner, Keizo Kiyohara, the company started off life by releasing the world’s first video timer, the VTG-32. Since then, it has gone on to establish FOR-A Corporation of America, two research and development centres in Japan and local subsidiary companies in the UK, Italy and China.
‘Looking back on FOR-A’s progress, we have been fortunate to have been able to continue growing and evolving – all thanks to our customers, whom we very much appreciate,’ stated FOR-A president, Katsuaki Kiyohara. ‘It will be essential to keep up with today's ever-changing market transitions, with the flexibility to achieve it. As a manufacturer, we will continue innovating, trusting in our infinite possibility. FOR-A aims to continue developing with the video production world and all of its customers toward mutual prosperity.’
