Buena Park, CA â€“ June 2009â€¦ Hosa Technology, the leading innovator of analog and digital connectivity solutions for music, sound, and A/V professionals, announces with great pride that the company has reached a major milestoneâ€”its 25th anniversary. From its humble beginnings in 1994, Hosa Technology has developed into an internationally recognized leader that provides an expansive range of cables and connectors, MIDI interfaces, stage boxes, preamplifiers, headphones, microphones, patchbays, instrument care products, switchers, digital audio format adapters, and more. Hosa Technology marks its Silver Anniversary June 1st, 2009.
Hosa Technology opened for business on June 1, 1984.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.
As it approaches its 25th year in business, Hosa Technology has evolved into a highly diversified organization with a comprehensive product line that addresses the requirements of professionals and enthusiasts alike. Moving well beyond its humble beginnings as a supplier of cables and adapters for musicians, Hosa Technology now offers products for musicians, tour sound professionals, the A/V contractor market, and carries a total of greater than 2000 SKUâ€™s. In addition to Hosa-branded products, the Company has formed the upscale Zaolla Silverline brand of cable offerings, and distributes the esteemed Da-Cappo Micro Microphones line throughout the Americas, as well as CAIG instrument care products throughout North America.
Hosaâ€™s ability to adapt to the ever-evolving market conditions has been key to its longevity. Over the years, Hosa Technology has revised the company logo and its packaging to reflect its more diversified nature. Further, the company has introduced new websites for both Hosa Technology and Zaolla Silverline (its two main brands), has introduced wall plates and related products for contractors, and has dramatically expanded its line of professional interconnects. Between its Hosa Technology, Zaolla Silverline, Da-Cappo Micro Microphones, and CAIG products, Hosa Technologyâ€™s offerings are among the most comprehensive in the industry.
â€œThe evolution of Hosa Technology to its present day status is an accomplishment I am extremely proud of,â€? says Sho Sato, President of Hosa Technology. â€œOver the years, Hosa has grown to reflect the diverse nature of the music and sound industry. The people who work here are like family and, without their effort and dedication; the Companyâ€™s expansion would not have been possible. Looking forward, I envision even greater opportunities as we strive to provide the music and sound professional with the best tools available to help make their aspirations a reality.â€?
