History

The company started operating in 1934. Their first product was the professional 35mm. film. Two years later, in 1936, amateur film was added to the assortment. In 1939, the organization established the Ashigara Research Lab, which research led Fuji to release their first color film in 1948.

In the mid-1950s, the company decides to enter the magnetic media market. For this purpose, in 1954 Fuji created a laboratory for the research of magnetic technologies and in 1960 began the industrial production of magnetic tapes. In 1963, the range was expanded with a two-inch video tape for home television.
