HORIBA, Ltd. (Hereinafter HORIBA) embarked on its challenging journey as an entity on January 26, 1953, based on the HORIBA RADIO LABORATORY (founded in 1945), which was established by our founder Dr. Masao Horiba while he was a student at Kyoto University.
HORIBA, which started as a small factory in Kyoto, Japan, has been working earnestly to explore analytical and measurement technologies that contribute to the development of science and technology, and to develop unique products and applications based on our original technologies. Over the past 70 years, many colleagues from various countries and regions worldwide who sympathized with HORIBA's founding spirit and our corporate motto, “Joy and Fun,” have gathered, and HORIBA has grown into a global company, which allows various personalities and talents to shine.
