Fujitsu Group in Europe

In Europe , Fujitsu is represented on the market with the following subsidiaries:

As the only manufacturer of office and home computers, Fujitsu operates the final production of some of the devices in Germany at the Augsburg plant. Other locations and production facilities in Germany are Berlin, Dresden, Düsseldorf, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Karlsruhe (development), Laatzen, Munich (headquarters), Nuremberg, Sömmerda, Stuttgart and Walldorf.


The company was founded in Tokyo in 1935 as a manufacturer of telephone accessories under the name Fuji Tsūshinki Seizō ( 富士 通信 機 製造 ). It emerged from the communications division of Fuji Denki Seizō KK ( 富士 電機 製造 株式会社 , English Fuji Electric Company , today: Fuji Denki Holdings ), which in turn was a joint venture between Furukawa Denki Kōgyō ( 古河 電 気 工業 ) and Siemens . The name Fuji was composed of Fu rukawa and mensu (Japanese for the pronunciation of Siemens as [ zi: mens ]).

In 1952, the collaboration with Siemens, which had been interrupted during World War II , was resumed. In 1967 the name Fujitsu originated from the components Furukawa (Fu), Siemens (ji) and Tsushinki (tsu). Until 1961, the logo that the company shared with its parent company also consisted of a circled “f” and an “S” - as a symbol for the parent company's two joint venture partners.

From 1999 to 2009 they worked with Siemens in the IT sector (servers, notebooks, desktop PCs, etc.) in the joint venture Fujitsu Siemens Computers (FSC). In 2009, the 50% Siemens share in FSC was taken over by Fujitsu, and the subsidiary was renamed Fujitsu Technology Solutions .

In 2009 the hard drive division was sold to Toshiba.

At the beginning of November 2017, a joint venture was concluded with the Chinese PC manufacturer Lenovo for the development and manufacture of client computing devices (CCD ) and an agreement was reached to acquire Lenovo's majority stake in the Fujitsu subsidiary Fujitsu Client Computing Limited (FCCL) .
