History in the music industry:
The Victor Company Of Japan, Ltd. was established in Japan by the US Victor Talking Machine Company in September 1927. It owned the Victor label and manufactured and distributed records for several others.
In 1943 the company was renamed to Nippon Onkyo, K.K., only to return to its previous name in 1946.
In 1972 the music division spun off into Victor Musical Industries, Inc.
Another spin-off was Nippon Phonogram Co., Ltd., established in June 1970, and handling Philips and associated labels.
