Sony History in Europe
Akio Morita, Sony's late co-founder,
recognised the importance of getting as close as possible to consumers, whether in Japan or abroad.
Linking East and West
In 1999, Sony Europe GmbH transferred its headquarters to the Sony Center am Potsdamer Platz in Berlin. This landmark Sony Center, built at the heart of a rejuvenated Berlin, was officially inaugurated in 2000. It represents one of the largest urban redevelopment projects in the city since reunification and epitomises Sony's vision and commitment to the new Europe. For more information on the Sony Center, please refer to www.sonycenter.de.
