Pioneer was founded in 1938 in Tokyo, Japan by Nozomu Matsumoto – a man with a passion for music that he hoped to share with the world through high-quality audio speakers. That passion began with a small operation to repair and manufacture speakers in Matsumoto’s garage. It has since grown to international stature as a manufacturer of audio and video products for use at home, in the car and in business environments. The element that has not changed in nearly 70 years is the passion for audio and video products – passionate about creating an unbeatable entertainment experience.
Today Pioneer is a world leader in electronics products for the car, home and business markets, respected for our role in introducing such innovations as consumer laser disc (1979), car CD player (1984), GPS car navigation (1990), DVD-Video player (1996), high definition plasma display (1997) and organic electroluminescent (OEL) display (1997). To this day, Pioneer still develops and manufactures innovative and high-tech entertainment and electronic products.
