I have to clear one confusion . In fact due to USA/JAPAN war consequences Mitsubishi was dissolved .
I copy/paste :
" After World War II, the Allied occupation forces were in favor of voluntary dissolution by Japan’s zaibatsu industrial groups, including Mitsubishi. That sentiment became formal in October 1945. Koyata himself succumbed to illness in December 1945 "
So there is now several companies with Mitsubishi in their name . That's why to be accurate i speak most of the time about Mitsubishi Chemicals .
" A revolution was under way, for example, in Japan’s energy and materials industries. The Mitsubishi companies participated actively in that revolution, setting up Mitsubishi Petrochemical (now part of Mitsubishi Chemical), Mitsubishi Atomic Power Industries, Mitsubishi Liquefied Petroleum Gas, and Mitsubishi Petroleum Development, among other new enterprises. "
Mitsubishi Electric explain this on his website ( i quoted from it ) :
You can also take a look at Mitsubishi Motors history :
If you want to know which Mitsubishi enterprise acts in one sector , you can go there :
Also in this list Mitsubishi Chemicals shows all his major afiliates/subsidiaries . Mitsubishi Chemicals own 100 per cent of Verbatim Corporation
And the "about" page on Verbatim website says too it is a Misubishi Chemicals Corporation Subsidiary :
. I think Verbatim manufacture itself at least some of the media ( it can be that other subsidiaries in Mitsubishi Chemicals produce most of or part of the media ) since it owns production plants ( i assume their own plants produce mainly CD-R , CD-RW, DVD-R , DVD-RW , DVD+R , and DVD+RW media and not other storage products ) .
Hum in this last article journalists accuse a Verbatim Plant and other plants to exploit some mexican workers . This is off subject . But we cannot live too far from realities . I will read it though . You are not forced to do like me . If you want further discussion on this you should move it to "Rants and Raves" .
