Modernizing the Art of Electronics and Miniaturization

Seiko Instruments, the principle company in the Seiko Holdings Group, was founded in 1937 to manufacture watches, an extension of a family watch assembly and repair operation started in 1881. During the past seventy five years the company has evolved into an engineering and manufacturing giant that has brought precision time-keeping into the electronic age.

The majority of the company's business comes from the commercialization of proprietary technologies the company originally pioneered for watch manufacturing. The diversification plan began in the late 1960's. Core competency in electronics was quickly added to those of miniaturization and precision engineering and manufacturing. And the company began to apply its expertise to the development of products in four core areas: Electronic components, consumer/business products, color graphic computer peripherals and factory automation systems.

Seiko Instruments USA is the Western Hemisphere affiliate of Seiko Instruments Inc. As such, it combines the size, strength and sophistication of a global company with North and South American product development, marketing and customer support and service skills.

Since 1981, our success in applying our proprietary technologies to the needs of both end users and OEM customers is demonstrated by our impressive growth. But many companies and individuals are just now discovering how they can solve problems, enhance productivity and improve quality by utilizing the products and services we offer. These products represent a melding of superior global research, development and multinational sourcing capabilities, combined with an in-depth understanding of the needs of our customers--and their customers.
