Founded as Daiichi Denzai Shokai, an Electronic Equipment Power Supply Vendor, in Mitaka, Tokyo
Hisami Umezawa, the current chairman, founded Daiichi Denzai Shokai after having worked for an electric insulating materials processing company. DDS started as a trading company distributing wires and cables, as DID is today. The office had an area only of just over 13 square meters, and there were only 2 employees, both of whom were Hisami’s relatives. Hisami started his company with one desk, one telephone, and a car for making deliveries.
Being a Pioneer of Multicore Cable Standardization, DID Started Sales of own Multicore Cable Products
DID made a big leap owing to the major success of its V2S multicore cables, compatible with Amphenol 57 series connectors, which were developed the previous year.
Moved to Komae, Tokyo, and Built a Brand-New Head Office
DID had been blessed with loyal customers and the number continued to grow. The company bought land for construction of the head office, and the desire that Hisami had had from the founding of the company to have a company-owned building was realized.
