Our history

We may have only been operating in New Zealand for over 50 years but Sharp's history of innovation goes all the way back to 1912. That's 110 years of innovation! Sharp's founder, Tokuji Hayakawa released the snap buckle belt in 1912, and a few years later brought the "Ever Sharp Pencil" to market. That's where it all started for Sharp. With a pencil that never dulled - it's where the spirit of Sharp originated - and continues to do so - through our evolving technologies. Hayakawa also coined our mantra, to "make products that others want to imitate", which is what inspires our global creed of creativity and sincerity, and enables us to bring life changing technologies to the New Zealand market.
