Mitsubishi Corporation and Other Mitsubishi Companies

MC is just one of many independent companies that bear the Mitsubishi name. Founded in the early 1870s as a steamship company by Yataro Iwasaki, the original Mitsubishi grew into a collection of companies engaged in most sectors of the Japanese economy. After World War II, the Mitsubishi holdings were broken up into over 40 independent companies, many of which still bear the Mitsubishi name and carry on its tradition of leadership and corporate principles.
