Mitsubishi Electric Corporation (三菱電機株式会社, Mitsubishi Denki kabushiki gaisha, also abbreviated as MELCO), established on 15 January 1921, is a Japanese multinational electronics and electrical equipment manufacturing company headquartered in Tokyo, Japan. It is one of the core companies of Mitsubishi. The products from MELCO include elevators and escalators, high-end home appliances, factory automation systems, train systems, semiconductors, digital signage, and satellites.
MELCO was established as a spin-off from the Mitsubishi Group's other core company Mitsubishi Heavy Industries, then Mitsubishi Shipbuilding, as the latter divested a marine electric motor factory in Kobe, Nagasaki. It has since diversified to become the major electronics company.
The company acquired Nihon Kentetsu, a Japanese home appliance manufacturer, in 2005.
