Corporate Name Change
Newspaper ad on corporate name change
The corporate name was changed from Fujikura Electric Wire Ltd. to Fujikura Ltd. on October 1st, 1992. Our business had long been concentrated on electric wires, but by that time we had also advanced in new fields including electronic materials and optical systems, breaking away from the position of an electric wire specialist. It was on this background that we attempted a new departure of Fujikura, expressing our will of making positive efforts in advancement in new business fields and appealing new corporate image free from the electric wires at the same time as continually enhancing the electric wire business.
