Yamaha was established in 1887 as a piano and reed organ manufacturer in Japan.
The company’s origin as a musical instrument manufacturer is still reflected today in its logo – a trio of interlocking tuning forks. After World War II, the company’s president repurposed the remains of the company’s war-time production machinery and the company’s expertise in metallurgical technologies to the manufacture of motorcycles. The YA-1, of which 125 were built the first year of production (1958), was named in honor of the founder. In 1959, the success of the YA-1 resulted in the founding of Yamaha Motor Co., Ltd.
Yamaha has grown to become the world’s largest manufacturer of musical instruments, as well as a leading manufacturer of semiconductors, audio/visual, computer related products, sporting goods, home appliances, specialty metals and industrial robots.
