Our History

Our story began with a number of key inventions. The Eversharp mechanical propelling pencil gave us our name, with innovative products continuing in a steady stream over the last century. We commercialised the first Japanese TVs and radios, and the world’s first LCD calculators - but that was just the beginning.

Over a hundred years on, we continue to innovate through customer centricity, and award-winning products that power office automation including: Document Solutions, Managed Print Services, Software and Workflow Solutions, collaboration tools, Hybrid Mail,  Audio Visual Solutions, Professional Signage, and connected technologies to name a few.

We now embark on a new exciting phase in our companies’ history as we move into the full provision of holistic and fully integrated IT Services.
