About Sharp

Welcome to Sharp Electronics Europe ...

Sharp is one of the world’s leading innovative developers and manufacturers of LCD and solar technology as well as electro technical components in the areas of optoelectronics, infrared and flash memory electronics.

Our guiding principle is “Honesty and Creativity“, together with the clear goal to improve the quality of people’s lives through state-of-the-art technologies. The result are not only unique, innovative products – true to our motto, “We make products that other want to imitate!”, we create new lifestyles for the 21st century.

Ever since the establishment of Sharp Electronics (Europe) GmbH (SEEG) in 1968, located in Hamburg, Sharp has been steadily expanding its business activities in Europe. In the past decades, we have grown to a total of 17 bases comprising 1 laboratory, 3 manufacturing sites, 11 sales subsidiaries and 1 finance company. With a substantial share of Sharp’s entire overseas business, Europe is one of our company’s most important markets.

The product spectrum ranges from consumer electronics (in particular LCD TVs and audio systems) and white goods (e.g. microwave ovens) via digital information systems (e.g. copying systems, MFPs, PDAs) and mobile phones to solar cells and modules. Moreover, the development of core digital technologies and components for electronic products (e.g. optoelectronics, infrared and flash memory electronics) belong to the core competences of Sharp.

Our aim is to further develop and expand Europe’s significance as Sharp’s market of the future in the core business fields of LCD-TVs, Solar Systems, Component Business and Document Solutions.

Thank you for your visit.
