History

The following section is an excerpt from Wikipedia's Denso page on 23 April 2019, text available via the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.

DENSO Corporation (株式会社デンソー Kabushiki-Gaisha Densō) is a global automotive components manufacturer headquartered in the city of Kariya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan.

After becoming independent from Toyota Motors, it was founded as Nippon Denso Co. Ltd. (日本電装株式会社 Nippon Densō Kabushiki-Gaisha) in 1949. About 25% of the company is owned by Toyota Motor. Despite being a part of the Toyota Group of companies, as of the year ending March 2016, sales to the Toyota Group accounted for less than 50% of the total revenue (44% of the revenue originated from other car manufacturers in Japan, Germany, the U.S. and China). Currently, Denso ranks the second largest auto parts supplier in the world.

As of 2016, Denso Corporation consisted of 189 subsidiaries (63 in Japan, 34 in the Americas, 34 in Europe and 58 in Asia/Oceania) with a total of 151,775 employees. The company is further escalating its global production structure by establishing manufacturing complexes in India, Mexico and Indonesia in order to accommodate further global demand for their products. In 2013 Denso was listed at #242 on the Fortune Global 500 list with a total revenue of $43.1 billion.

The word Denso 電装 (Den-So) is derived from the two Japanese words Den-Ki (Electric) and So-Chi (Device).
