Mitsubishi is formed from two Japanese words: mitsu, three, and hishi, diamond.
But as you can see, for some reason in the name of the company the sixth letter of the word "h" is replaced by the letter "b". And this is not a mistake. The fact is that in Japanese, the letter "h" in the middle of a word is pronounced like the letter "b".
It is for the convenience of understanding how to pronounce the name of the company correctly, and such a change was made to the spelling.
The history of the Mitsubishi company dates back to the distant 1870, when its founder, Yataro Iwasaki, created a small shipping company, in the fleet of which there were only three old steamers.
The Mitsubishi company will be engaged in the release of concrete construction equipment immediately after the end of the WW2, specializing mainly in the production of graders, excavators and trucks.
However, by the early 1960s, the company would begin to feel fierce competition in this area with another Japanese manufacturer of construction and quarry equipment, Komatsu, and would have to start merger negotiations with Caterpillar.
In 1963, the two giants will form a joint venture called Shin Caterpillar Mitsubishi Ltd, where Caterpillar will become the majority shareholder.
Satoh is a part of Mitsubishi.
