Origin of the company name

The name “Clarion” comes from a bugle-like wind instrument used in ancient Greece. It was first used as a brand name in 1947 while our company was still named “Teikoku Dempa”. We wanted to choose a name that was familiar and easy to remember, and in English, taking into consideration future exports. In searching for a name, we even consulted the TV host of a popular English lesson show and sent questionnaires to native English speakers. Subsequently, the company name was changed from “Teikoku Dempa” to “Clarion” to coincide with our listing in the first section of the Tokyo and Osaka stock exchanges.
