Well contrary to what one may think, the Sharp brand got its name from one of the first inventions ever made by the original founder, in or around 1915. The invention was the Ever-Sharp mechanical pencil. It was not until 1928 when that company was destroyed in a massive earthquake, when the business relocated to Osaka in Japan.
Sharp really gained global recognition in 1973 when the company introduced the very first LCD calculator to market, forging what would become a fundamental component in the technology used by Sharp. LCD technology is still to this day a major element in the way Sharp builds their products.
Today they manufacture a wide range of business machines including, fax machines, printers, Multifunction printers, and Sharp photocopiers among others. They are a leading brand and recognized the world over for functionality, simplicity and versatility.
