Corporate History
The history of Futaba chronicles the steady growth of a manufacturer of vacuum tubes in Japan to a world-wide corporation that supplies flat panel Vacuum Fluorescent Displays (VFD), field emission display (FED), mold base and die sets, and industrial and hobby radio control systems.

Futaba Denshi was established in 1948 as a manufacturer and seller of receiver vacuum tubes. Utilizing vacuum tube technology, Futaba began manufacturing fluorescent tube displays. In 1962 Futaba began producing radio control equipment as well as press and punching die components, establishing what still remains as two of the company's primary divisions. This was followed by the development of mold base components and digital position readout systems, and the more recent addition of Vacuum Fluorescent Display tube modules to complete the lineup of Futaba's major products. Firmly embracing the principle of manufacturing each component in-house, Futaba creates everything from its own tools to its own manufacturing facilities. The soundness of this strategy is validated by our ever growing list of awards for consistent, high-quality products.
