Brand Story

The Fostex Company was founded in July 1973 by Foster Electric Co., Ltd. (founded 1949), one of the world's largest developers of OEM speaker and transducer products, employing over 50,000 people in nine countries/territories. Foster Electric Co., Ltd. is listed on the Tokyo Stock Exchange.


These days Fostex now has distribution in more than fifty territories and continues to be a major name in recording from the home musician to the television station; the recording studio to the duplication house. As the market has moved from analog to digital, Fostex has developed solutions that perfectly match their user's requirements for yesterday, today, and tomorrow.
