Hitachi in the USA

Hitachi’s history with North America dates back to 1926, when Hitachi first exported 30 electric fans to the United States. Hitachi America, Ltd. was established in 1959 as a regional subsidiary, and the first Hitachi manufacturing facility in the U.S. opened in 1977. Today, Hitachi’s presence and commitment to the U.S. economy has grown to 15 major research and development (R&D) facilities, 30 main manufacturing sites,1 92 Group Companies and over 22,000 employees.2


At Hitachi, we have great faith in the power of technology to advance and transform our lives now, as well as to improve the quality of life for future generations. Hitachi provides sophisticated business and consumer solutions that transform business processes. With operations throughout the Americas, Hitachi offers a broad range of consumer and business products, including industrial equipment and services, automotive products and consumer electronics.


Hitachi’s digital solutions help organizations improve performance by solving real business problems while also addressing significant social problems and environmental issues. We call it Social Innovation – making the world a better place through technology – and it is part of Hitachi’s heritage. Social Innovation starts with an idea: one simple thought that has the power to change the world. At Hitachi, we’re bringing these possibilities to life with advanced technologies like IoT, analytics and artificial intelligence. But we’re not doing it alone. Through unique collaborative creation platforms, we’re bringing thinkers and doers together to accelerate Social Innovation – working smarter, faster and more creatively towards a better tomorrow.
