Century Corporation takes pride in being one of the best premier computer peripheral manufacturers and distributors in Japan for the past 20 years.
Established in 1987, the company began as a semiconductor reseller from a tiny office in Tokyo, Japan. After a couple of years in the semiconductor business, Century started assembling SIMM modules. Instead of chasing the broader and more diverse PC market, these visionaries decided that specialization would be the future key. So we developed an intimate knowledge of every aspect of the Macintosh products and world markets.
1997 is a very important year for Century! In April, after careful market research, Century Corporation launched its design and manufacturing division, to produce our own designed computer peripherals, components, and motherboards, as well as hybrid products for both the PC and Mac markets. These include motherboards, LCD monitors, internal & external CD-RW drives, SCSI cards for Macintosh, 2.5 and 3.5-inch IDE-to-SCSI converters, 2.5 and 3.5- inch external HDD enclosures, I/O cards, and many other devices.
Followed in September, Century went on to merge with Dennoh, a very popular retailer group of Macintosh products to end-users in Japan. As a result, Century Corporation has become one of the most recognizable Macintosh resellers in Japan. After establishing our pre-eminence in the Macintosh market, we then broadened our range of activities to develop a strong presence in the corporate PC market.
