History

The History of SIIX Corp.

The foundation of the company traces back to 1957. An export section was created in the trading division of Sakata Shokai Co., Ltd (currently Sakata Inx Corporation), the ink-maker that was the company’s predecessor, and exports of electronic components to the Philippines began. After that, the company expanded its overseas business to include exports, imports, sales and three-country transactions involving electronic components and devices, various electrical products, electronic hardware and machines, etc., and in July 1992, hoping for the further development of this business, the overseas business section was spun off into an independent company and established as “Sakata Inx International Corporation”. This company was subsequently renamed “SIIX Corporation” in July 1998.

Since being spun off, SIIX has developed as a unique global company that provides EMS (Electronics Manufacturing Services) combined with parts procurement and logistics, aimed at a wide range of electronics areas including consumer devices, automobile equipment, and industrial equipment. The company is pleased to say that after listing on the second section of the Osaka Securities Exchange in 1999 and the second section of the Tokyo Stock Exchange in 2000, it was assigned to the first section of both exchanges in 2005. The company’s business model, constructed with a focus on “overseas business” since the initial stages of its founding, is now standing right on the verge of a “global age,” which will provide a stage for even greater activities.
