FOR-A was born in 1971 following the development and commercialization of the world’s first video timer. This departure point epitomizes the company and over the years we have supported advancements in video and audio and brought new value to society with production that is focused one step ahead of the times. We opened an R&D Center in Sakura City in 1985, which remains our key facility today. We have created a start-to-finish system, from the development of new products to their production and after-sales support, and worked across the organization to meet the desires and expectations of our customers.

That’s why broadcast and video production sites requiring the best in quality and reliability have chosen our products and systems for over 40 years. This is something that we are proud of and that remains one of our key assets. Along the way, we have amassed technologies and achievements hand-in-hand with our customers. We never settle for the status quo ? instead, we constantly seek to drive new technological innovation in order to help our customers grow.

On top of this, we believe our mission going forward is to use the technologies and know-how we have accumulated in the video and audio industry to contribute to an increasing number of fields. As a business partner to customers the world over, we aim to spread the value generated by video and audio to all corners of society.
