Around 71 years ago (1946) Casio was founded in Japan under the name Kashio Seisakujo. Tadao, Kashio, the founder, specialized in fabrication technology but wanted to be a major innovator. Their first product was far from the musical industry, it was actually a ring that allowed you to smoke without having to hold the cigarette. Casio didn’t get its modern name until 1957 when it became Casio Computer Co. Ltd.
The 1980’s saw the release of a number of budget electronic instruments to be sold to the general public. Casio drew on experience from all of its various ventures in order to start crafting these electronic instruments and became very well-known for their instruments.
