Stanley LED LCD Automotive Electronics – Active Components
Stanley Electric Co., Ltd., was established in 1920 by Mr. Takaharu Kitano. In those days, there were no more than 8,000 cars in Japan, and they were all imported models. Under the circumstances, it certainly took courage, vision, and a challenging spirit to start a company devoted to the manufacturing of automotive light bulbs.
Stanley operates in four business segments. The Automobile Equipment segment manufactures automobile lighting products for automobile manufacturers. The Components segment is engaged in the manufacture electronic devices for electronic and automobile related product manufactures. The Applied Electronic Product segment provides units and modules such as backlights, strobe and operation panel for liquid crystal displays (LCDs). The Others segment provides other services. As of March 31, 2014, the Company had 36 consolidated subsidiaries and three associated companies.
Regarding electronic components, Stanley Electric has been successful in the research and development of value-added products such as semiconductors, parts for information/communications devices, and of course lighting devices. By offering a large variety of products for use in a wide range of industries, Stanley as a company becomes part of the success our customers enjoy.
