In 1937, Nozomu Matsumoto, the founder of Pioneer Corporation, successfully developed Japan’s first Hi-Fi dynamic speaker, which became the base for the modern Hi-Fi speaker. In 1938, he established Fukuin Shokai Denki Seisakusho, predecessor of Pioneer Corporation. The current company name “Pioneer” was originally a trademark of “A-8,” which was developed by the founder, who was strongly impressed by the sound quality of a foreign-made dynamic speaker and wanted to share the excitement with as many persons as possible (in 1961, the company name was officially changed to “Pioneer”.). Under the corporate philosophy “Move the Heart and Touch the Soul,” which describes the spirit of the founding, the “pioneer spirit,” which the company name signifies, has been inherited as the firm belief in delivering a lot of the world’s first products and services globally
Currently, Pioneer focuses on the car electronics business and aims to become a leading company in “Comprehensive Infotainment,” which creates comfort, excitement, reliability and safety through the development of advanced technologies and the provision of new in-vehicle entertainment services. We will continue to deliver deep impressions to every single customer by pursuing “sound”, “vision” and “information.”
