The Japanese brand Toshiba, is one of those that has gone through ups and downs in both production and reputation throughout its long history.
Founded in 1939, Toshiba has been a prolific producer of all kinds of electronic solutions for the domestic, commercial and industrial sectors. In its good old days its products and services were highly diversified, ranging from electronic components, IT solutions and accessories to elevators and escalators for industrial infrastructures.
Toshiba makes everything but laptops
Although in recent years Toshiba has perhaps ceased to be a benchmark brand in many electronics categories, it still offers a wealth of options that continues to fight off relentless competition at all levels.
So, Toshiba, still has a good presence in the air conditioners sector, and consumer electronics, especially HD televisions, monitoring and control systems, as well as home appliances for regular use.
In 2020, they said goodbye to the laptop market, a sector in which the fierce competition from computer giants has been too much for them. In spite of that, Toshiba printers and products for data storage such as USB keys and portable hard disks, still have value.
