YAMAHA

As the Yamaha Organ Manufacturing, it was founded in 1887 by Torakusu Yamaha in Hamamatsu in Shizuoka Prefecture. Torakusu Yamaha, a clockmaker and mechanic, had been a great success by repairing the harmonium of one of the city's schools. The company manufactures 250 instruments that year. In 1897 it was renamed Nippon Gakki Co., Ltd. (Nippon Gakki Seïzo Kabushiki Kwaïsha) with the aim of embarking on the manufacture of other instruments.

In 1900, Yamaha returned from the United States after a year spent learning the profession of piano maker. The company then sells its first straight pianos, and two years later grand pianos. Strengthened by this success, it continues to diversify by making other instruments: harmonicas, xylophones, etc. Torakusu Yamaha, died in Tokyo on August 8, 1916, at the age of 65 years.

In 1930, the Nippon Gakki created its own acoustic laboratory. During the Second World War, the company was forced to manufacture aircraft propellers and from 1944 to 1947 it would no longer produce any instrument. After the war, economic growth is important, the company is working on various products enabling it to diversify (sewing machine, automobile, etc.).

In 1955, Nippon Gakki Yamaha was renamed in honor of its founder and launches its first motorcycle, the YA-1.

In October 1987 Yamaha bought out the British drum and percussion manufacturer Premier Percussion Limited, and resold it in February 1995.

Yamaha bought Korg in 1989, which in 1993 became a completely independent company by buying Yamaha shares.

Yamaha bought Steinberg in 2004 and also bought Motobécane-Motoconfort.

In 2001, when the Yamaha Motor Corporation was founded, motorcycle and engine activity separated. This split is done by exchange of shares with Toyota.

The logo of the brand, which represents the three forks crossed recalls the beginnings of the company that today is one of the two largest piano manufacturers in the world, about 130 000 units per year
