At just 25, Sho Sato moved to the U.S. from Japan with big dreams, but only a few dollars to his name. In 1984, he founded Hosa with a borrowed desk and telephone, and turned it into one of the most recognizable companies in the music and professional audio industries.The Company was conceived and started by Sho Sato for the purpose of distributing Hosa-brand musical instrument cables, adaptors, and accessories to musical instrument dealers worldwide. Born in 1943 in Yokohama, Japan, Mr. Sato moved to the United States in 1967 to work for the TEAC Corporation of America in Montebello, CA as a technician before rising to the position of National Sales Manager, Accessories Division. He stayed with TEAC until 1984 when he launched Hosa Technology, Incorporated.
After three decades of hard work and dedication, Sato has passed the torch to his daughter, Mayumi Allison. Her main goal—and that of the entire Hosa team—is to continue to live up to the mission of the company: To create reliable connectivity solutions with unparalleled service, passion, and care.
