Overview of the company Yaesu

The Japanese radio amateur Sako Hasegawa, JA1MP, founded in 1956 in Tokyo, the company K. K. General Terebi Service. Eight years later in 1964, the company moved to Yaesu, Tokyo and changed its name to YAESU Musen. The focus in the 1950s and 1960s was exclusively on the development and production of amateur radio equipment for shortwave operation. Early in the 60s, Germany became an interesting sales market for amateur radios. In 1963, the Sommerkamp company set up a sales department for YAESU radios, which was taken over a few years later by Richter & Co, Ricofunk, with locations in Hanover and Düsseldorf. With the later sale of Ricofunk to Stabo Elektronik in Hildesheim, the distribution again passed into new hands.

Things to know about Yaesu

In 1999, YAESU moved its headquarters to Meduro, Tokyo. With the change of name to Vertex Standard, only the products of the amateur radio division were sold under the YAESU brand. YAESU Deutschland GmbH, with sales and service located in Schwalbach am Taunus until mid-2001, was dissolved in Germany and merged with the Dutch subsidiary "YAESU Europe B. V.". The YAESU brand Vertex-Standard devices secured the low-end market worldwide and Motorola improved its market presence in Japan.

On January 1, 2012, they spun off the amateur, maritime and aeronautical radio divisions again as an independent company under the old name YAESU Musen. Most recently, YAESU once again moved its headquarters to Shinagawa, Tokyo. Currently, the company is managed by Jun Hasegawa, a son of the company's founder, who has since passed away.
